Once again, Golf saves the day

Jennifer Lawrence stars as 'Katniss Everdeen' in THE HUNGER GAMES.THE great game of golf is accused of so many things …. alleviating world poverty, promoting international peace, keeping older people a little fitter, mentally alert and acceptably socialised.

Now golf has even come to the aid of young Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence, of ‘The Hunger Games’ fame.

Lawrence was understandably distressed and outraged recently when nude photographs of herself were hacked and then published on the internet.

There came a time when the 24 year old had to bite the bullet and let her dad know what was happening, she has just disclosed.

“When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened … I don’t care how much money I get for ‘The Hunger Games,’ I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it,” she said before joking, “Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.”

Playing golf and in a good mood? We’ll have to find out what course he was playing.
