Jimmy Fallon and Cameron Diaz play roller golf on "Tonight Show"
Jimmy Fallon is rapidly becoming a Golf Buzz favorite, and why not? The "Tonight Show" host loves his golf, and loves to inject golf into his show in fun and entertaining ways.
His most recent golf-related escapade came Wednesday night, when he challenged guest Cameron Diaz to a game of "roller golf." Roller golf, Fallon explained, is golf on roller skates, but the objective is to knock your ball into the hole faster than your opponent, regardless of how many strokes you take.
So he and Diaz donned helmets and pads – maybe this should be called "Roller-Derby golf" instead. Wait a minute, this is actually just a golf version of roller hockey. Anyway, both Fallon and Diaz took a club and played a one-hole match.
Diaz shot off the starting line like a race car, and quickly built a big lead. Fallon rallied late, but even a little bit of illegal goaltending couldn't keep Diaz from claiming victory.
We hope Fallon doesn't take his defeat too hard – after all, Diaz showed off a pretty good swing on the driving range in "There's Something About Mary." We're counting on him to keep golf a prominent part of his program.
