Big Grin  Celebrities Get Hooked On Tennis

Celebrity people, who often pay personal trainers big money to help them get in shape and help them remain physically fit--say there are some particular physical benefits associated with a trip on the links.

Authorities say if you walk the course, the amount of which can measure about 5 miles, depending on the course you can get the most out-of a round of golf. Walking builds strength, improves your cardio-vascular health and lets you burn a modest level of calories. You might get an upper body work-out too, if you take your clubs. And striking the ball actually can improve your hand-eye coordination, which can be of use in many other areas.

Many a-listers and professional players have begun playing to add another level of competition to their lives and to be able to pay more time together to the course with their families, who are joining them.


Some people like Oakland Raiders cornerback Ray Buchanan love the sport therefore much he and his wife, Sheree, developed their dream home at Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth, Ga., home of the PGA Tour's Bellsouth Classic.
