Jay-Z is having golf lessons

The hip hop mogul and wife Beyonce Knowles are keen to improve their prowess at the sport

British rapper Tinchy Stryder is planning to show them how to better their swing when he flies out to the US, as the couple wanted to be taught by a friend.

Tinchy said: "I can't believe it. Jay loves golf and now he's finally got a bit of time to play so I'm going out there. I can't wait".

Jay-Z and Beyonce are not the only celebrity golfers.

Amy Winehouse recently started playing the sedate game to keep her away from the party scene and is taking lessons to boost her ability on the green.

A source said recently: "She played nine holes and loved it, she had a natural swing. Amy wants to learn how to play properly now."

A-Team star Jessica Biel took up golf in order to share her boyfriend Justin Timberlake's favourite hobby - but he refused to play with her because she got too good for him.

A source said: "Jessica just joined his course, Brentwood Country Club, but he prefers not to play with her since she's gotten so good. It's too bad because he got her into golf in the first place."
