We interrupt our coverage of the Masters for this special report:
 
Beyonce plays golf! Well, sort of.
 
Instead of watching the goings-on at Augusta National on Thursday, Queen B posted a couple of Instagram shots of herself out on the links. She's dressed, shall we say, casually, and gripping the club in a way that inspires me to recommend that she call her local PGA Professional for a lesson.
 
However, the point is that one of the world's most famous and influential entertainers was out on the course and enjoying herself.
 
According to the MediaTakeOut.com website, Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z are down in the Dominican Republic to celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary. To ensure their privacy, the site reported, they rented out an entire golf course (it doesn't say which one) at a cost of $300,000 for the week.
 
Her photos have prompted a huge reaction in female- and entertainment-oriented media circles because some people are claiming she might have done a little photoshopping. I am staying a strong 3-wood away from that discussion, and will end this post by hoping that she had enough fun out on the links to make golf more a part of her life.
