You might one day find yourself in a golf clubhouse, wiping down a 6-iron, or perhaps backstage after a concert, and suddenly Justin Timberlake will jog over, smile and say, “Hey man, what’s up?” In fact, if you’re one of the three lucky souls to land our Golf/Concert package in our sale on Wednesday, either of those scenarios is entirely within the realm of possibility. It is not a knock on your manhood to speculate that, at these moments, you might be a bit tongue-tied. To prepare you, we’ve gone ahead and prepared a list of Five Things You Should Know Before Making Conversation With Grammy- and Emmy-award Winner Justin Timberlake.
1) The man is a serious golfer. He plays with a six handicap, and is tied for 15th in Golf Digest‘s musician ranking.
2) He played Augusta in 2008, and eagled infamous hole 13 with a 9-iron. It was windy and yes, he’s already made the “They call it A-gust-a for a reason” joke, so don’t try.
3) Don’t mess with the thermostat. He likes his dressing room kept at a constant 71.9 degrees Fahrenheit.
4) No mention of Arsenal. He’s a Manchester United fan.
5) Besides music and golf, JT is knowledgeable in the following areas:
- Fashion (he started William Rast)
- Tequila (he started his own, 901 Tequila)
- Food (he owns two restaurants, Destino and Southern Hospitality)
