Jimmy Fallon is a big sports fan. We've seen him donate money to an NFL player's charity while also devoting segments on his show to pranking baseball fans with special appearances from Matt Harvey and Robinson Cano.
It turns out Fallon is also a golf buff, which helps explain why he is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Golf Digest.
On playing Tiger Woods in his own video game:
That dude does not like to lose or be told what to do. On the second hole he hit the ball, and I said, "Tiger, you know if you just shake the thing and move it forward you can put spin on the ball." He looks at me and says, "Don't tell me how to play my game."
I look back at these great comedians who had golf tournaments, like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. They'd goof off, have fun and make some good memories. I'd love to do that. Maybe we can start something here on the East Coast, whether it be in the Hamptons or just outside the city. We need one of those back here.
On how he and his buddies usually play:
We'll do closest to the hole on par 3s, and we'll play for a buck or five bucks. But it's totally more about the social. It's almost like therapy. You can complain about stuff, laugh about stuff and clear your head. And you get exercise.
