Justin Timberlake wasn't much of a help to his partner, world No. 7 Justin Rose, in the Thursday first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. So the least he could do was contribute a song.
On the 16th hole at Spyglass Hill Golf Course, Timberlake got out his guitar and sang a few bars of his version of "Drink You Away," which could well have been about his golf round.
Thanks to Golf Digest for pointing out the video shot by ESPN's Jason Sobel:
"That was a cool moment," Rose said. "Not many people saw it, because there was only like 20 people back there. That's obviously when you really appreciate how someone can grab a guitar, go a cappella and sound so awesome. You have a better appreciation. You see him hit not maybe so many great golf shots, but then you realize, 'Ah, that's pretty damn special right there.' So we all have our own skill set."
Rose shot 6-under 66 to end the day two shots behind leader Chez Reavie. However, his gallery may not have paid much attention to his impressive debut round in the old Crosby Clambake. It was definitely a Timberlake kind-of crowd.
"I've never seen a demographic like that on a golf course where you're sort of running the gauntlet from one tee to the other," Rose said. "Everyone was under 21 and 80 percent female."
