Justin Timberlake has proven over and over again the he is multi-talented. He sings, dances, acts, and is a pretty great dad. Now we can add hero to his already impressive resume.
While participating in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship near Lake Tahoe on Wednesday (July 12), Timberlake came to the aid of a spectator who was struck by a golf ball. The kind-hearted gesture was captured on tape by the Sacramento Bee. As an unnamed player hits a ball of the tee, the ball line drives into the crowd. An audible gasp can be heard from players and spectators alike.
Several people are seen making their way to the injured woman, including Justin Timberlake.
“This is the difficulty playing with amateurs,”Ed Fletcher of the Sacramento Bee can be heard saying. “So the golfer has come over to attend to him, and here’s Timberlake coming over as well.”
After several minutes, Timberlake is seen making the woman laugh. “I think JT is in here consoling the person that was struck. I see smiles, so hopefully it’s not too bad here,” the narrator continues. “Justin didn’t strike the ball, but seems to be doing the most talking there, gives the girl a high-five.”
It was Timberlake’s third time playing in the tournament. This year he had been playing alongside former NFL star Tony Romo and NBA great Stephan Curry when the incident happened.
As the “Can’t Stop The Feeling” singer walks away from the scene, he dramatically pumped his arms at his sides and raised them up as if he was angry.
“What’d you do Richard?” Timberlake jokingly said to his friend who hit the ball. The two golfers then embraced and walked back to the tee.
