A recent study revealed that many married men use the golf course as a place to commit their acts of infidelity. Well, if you are not one of those men, but still want to golf without making your wife upset, this celebrity has the answer.
The actor Josh Duhamel is no stranger to the golf course. He is frequently in celebrity pro-ams and says that he golfs all the time. So how does he balance his golf life and his home life? He only plays 9 holes at a time.

An 18-hole round of golf can take up to 6 hours in a day, which can be a lot when you have to spend time with family too. Hell, it’s a lot for anyone really. But to appease those significant others that are left at home, the best way to keep everyone happy is to play 9 instead of 18.
At least this is the method Duhamel uses, and for a celebrity to have a working marriage while playing golf too, is pretty great grounds for success:
“My wife [Fergie] is fine with me playing golf. She actually probably likes getting me out of the house. She’s never once gotten annoyed at me for playing golf, probably because I’m a nine-hole golfer. I think nine holes is perfect, you get out there and come back quick. When my 3-year-old is old enough to start playing with me, I’ll get out there even more.”

3 hours, or however long it will take you to finish 9-holes, is much less time consuming than what a whole round of golf would take. It’s a win-win really, because you still get to play golf and spend time with your S.O., making everyone happy.
It may seem like common sense, and yet some people will probably still choose the 6 hour round over eliminating the other half of their game. Compromise makes the world go round, people.
Celebrities who probably golf more than you:
Oh, what a legend. How we all wish we were around when Clough was managing. Maverick. If you haven't, please watch Damned United. And, during this game, the manager even turned on his own supporters by clipping them round the ear - that's probably kind to him - as his own fans raided the pitch after victory against QPR.

Slightly different angle here. Pique has been famously vocal over his support for Catalan Independence from central Spain. The Barcelona man has regularly been booed when playing for the Spanish team, and recently stated how he will retire after the 2018 World Cup due to the pressure from the fans. Shame Gerard didn't opt for a Wazza-Roo response, 'nice to see your home fans booing, ya'. Image Source: Getty Images
Chelsea were an absolute laughing stock last season. And, to be fair to their fans, they stood behind their 'Special One'. Following Jose's sacking, Chelsea then decided to turn up, and beat Sunderland 3-0. Unprofessional, and just wrong. Who do the players think they are, picking and choosing when to show-up?! It led to heavy jeers from the home fans, in particular at the famous three rats; Costa, Hazard and Fabregas. Image Source: Daily Mail
You've got to feel for Aston Villa supporters. From being a really respected Premier League club under Martin O'Neil, to petering out like a pathetic erection after a big night out. Still, the way they turned on Brad Guzan during that 4-0 loss to Chelsea was too far last season. It led to the Chelsea players saying they'd never heard of such abuse to host players from the home fans. Poor old, Brad. Image Source: The Sun
After leading Leicester City to a Premier League title, Riyad Mahrez signed a new deal with the defending champs. With the Leicester magic sent to end after they get eliminated in the knockout round of the Champions League, Mahrez will be looking for greener pastures. Real Madrid with far too much money will look to buy the Algeria international for far too much money and he'll end up rotting on the bench. Source: Twitter

Picture the scenario - you're the number one keeper for your nation who reached both the World Cup and Copa America finals in the last few years, and yet you're stuck sitting on the bench having to endure the miserable Manchester weather. How can Romero possibly be happy in his current position? The Argentine needs to be playing regular football, period. Source: ibtimes
The former Southampton midfielder simply isn't getting the respect he deserves under Jose Mourinho, and for such a quality player that is unacceptable. The abilities this lad possesses would see him walk into most teams around Europe, but for some reason the Frenchman can't hold down a regular place at Old Trafford which is a great shame.

Long time Eagles guitarist is also a long time golfer. (Pintrest)
Some people may be shocked and outraged by this decision, but hear me out. The youngster has only just come back from a debilitating injury, but rumours are already circulating that Mourinho isn't a big fan of the youngster and it appears as if he's behind Daley Blind in the pecking order. Maybe a move away from Manchester wouldn't be the worst thing.
Things have been looking pretty pear shaped for Young for a few years now, and to be honest if he has any hope of salvaging his career he needs to find the exit door at Old Trafford pretty quickly. It doesn't look like things are going to get any better any time soon, and he could still do a job for a second tier side. Source: Huffington Post
To be captain of your country, and then be booed like Turan was during Euro 2016, shows how ruthless the Turks can be. On the chopping board for not putting enough effort in during Turkey's 3-0 loss to Spain. The Spanish even started chanting Turan in support for the Barcelona man. Image Source: Squawka
Snoop sure knows a lot about grass, plus is one hell of a golfer. (Listal)
The Turks are back at it. Demirel genuinely refused to play for the national side in 2014, after receiving copious amounts of abuse from Galatasaray fans, playing for Fenerbahce. Saying that, really don't blame the 'keeper, those fans are terrifying. Image Source: kralspor
