Hugh Grant Gets Around

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Sports, Charity,

Hugh Grant loves to travel, especially for golf

English actor Hugh Grant flies from New York to England just to play golf. The Notting Hill star is obsessed with the game and travels thousands of miles to play 18 holes.

Speaking at the launch of his father James Grant’s watercolor exhibition at a Southampton gallery, the 48-year-old actor said, “I come out here to play golf, since I’m a golf fanatic.”

Hugh also took time to praise his 81-year-old father’s artistic skills: “I’m so proud of my dad—he’s been painting all my life. My dad, who lives in London and is originally from Scotland, follows the tradition of Scottish colorists and I really love his colors in these nature scenes.”

Bill Murray’s Mean Left Hook

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Where Are They Now?,

Bill Murray

assaulted a fan over the weekend with a golf ball - but don’t worry, it was an accident.

While teeing off in Tampa, Murray hooked his shot far to the left and hit Gayle DiMaggio plumb on the noggin. Surprisingly, however, the fan didn’t request monetary compensation or threaten a lawsuit. All she wanted from Murray, who quickly went to make amends, was a signed copy of his golf-themed flick Caddyshack.

Solar Golf CartIt’s summer, so that means it’s time to get out and swing those clubs. How fortunate that Hammacher Schlemmer is willing to make your game simpler with their Solar Powered Golf Cart. The vehicle’s 160W array offers up to 3 amps per hour on its 48V rechargeable battery. This will equal about 10 rounds of golf before needing another full charge. At a size of 7 3/4 x 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 ft. and a weight of 1,100 lbs., the claim is that that the array extends the life of the battery system by 60% more than other golf carts. You have to really love the game to fork over the $8,999.95 and it would help to live in a sunny climate.

Shadow Caddy for Golfers

Shadow Caddy

It may be time for overworked caddies to find another line of work. The Shadow Caddy is a three-wheeled electronic device that carries golfers’ clubs without a remote. It works by a tracking system and simply follows you and your transmitter around. So far the caddy is only available for rent at Australian golf courses, but we are certain they would love to hear from anyone who wants one enough to import it to his/her countries. Check out the videos on their site to see the Shadow in action.
