Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods are the lead partners in a company called the Nexus Luxury Collection, Ltd. This company recently purchased a stake in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT).
This puts Timberlake and Woods in business together with future generations of golf as the target market. This has been a passion of both throughout their respective careers. Woods has made kids a huge priority through his Tiger Woods Foundation. This is slightly different than that because it does not involve education, but Woods’ investments in the future of American youth is undeniable.
“The success of junior golf is an important element in growing the game,” Woods said in a press release. “Helping boys and girls compete, and be involved in golf, will benefit the kids and help strengthen our sport.”
Timberlake, meanwhile, helped create the incredible documentary The Short Game on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it, you need to watch. It is tremendous and a great look into the wild world of junior golf.
“From my role as Executive Producer of The Short Game, I have always been a committed supporter of junior golf, and through the Hurricane Tour, we can continue to help grow the game amongst the junior ranks,” said Timberlake.
Timberlake and Woods have unintentionally had about the same amount of participation on the PGA Tour this year. Both have played a single event. Timberlake actually got in four rounds at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am while Woods was cut after two at the Farmers Insurance Open.
