Hugh Grant’s golf addiction hurting his love lifeNovember 17th, 2009 - 2:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 17 (ANI): Hugh Grant has said that he is addicted to golf so much so that it is harming his love life.
The actor, who often lurks around in Scottish golf courses St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns, believes women do not appreciate his love for the sport.
“When you say to a girl ‘I play golf’ her eyes glaze over. I do feel guilty about my golf,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
He added: “You know you’re a sad case when you spend your spare time reading books on putting or going on YouTube to watch slow motion golf swings.
“I’ll get out of bed in the middle of the night and practise my swing in front of a mirror. I’m obsessed and it’s destroying my life. Golf is an addiction.
“I’ve decided the most addictive element is the physical sensation when in a rare moment you hit the ball flush in the middle of the club.
“The only thing that comes close is when I was taught to play the piano - the vibration when you hit a beautiful chord.”
Grant has dated actress Elizabeth Hurley and socialite Jemima Khan in the past. (ANI)
