Justin Timberlake wants to write a book about golf! Sources say lit agent David Vigliano—who has recently repped books by celebrities like Shannon Doherty and Clay Aiken—sent editors a short proposal by the singer last month. Mr. Timberlake has been a golf fanatic for years, getting his first taste of the game as a boy and later playing it with a group of roadies during the last *NSYNC tour. Today, he regularly competes in charity tournaments, and even owns an environmentally friendly golf course in his hometown of Millington, Tennessee.
Though neither Mr. Vigliano nor Mr. Timberlake’s publicist, Sonia Muckle, would comment on the project, we hear it’ll be something of a memoir, consisting of stories of rounds he has played and people he has played with.
There is at least one recent precedent for such a project: in 2008, Three Rivers Press published shock rocker Alice Cooper’s Golf Monster: A Rock ’n’ Roller’s Life and 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict.
