Jackson tops list of Scots' golf buddies

Actor Samuel L. Jackson  is the celebrity that most Scots would like to play  a round of golf with, according to a Scottish Open survey.

Research revealed that 12% of people surveyed would have the all-time highest grossing box office star as their partner on the golf course – but when it comes to celebrating a hole-in-one, most would want to raise a glass with royal party animal Prince Harry.

Jackson, who has a clause in his movie contracts so he can get time off to play twice a week, came out as the nation’s favourite golf partner, pipping Sir Sean Connery into second place.

Sir Sean gained 11.8% of the vote, with George Clooney the third most popular with 10.6%.

In terms of Scottish personalities respondents would like to play a round with, Billy Connolly came out on top at 24.3%, while Trainspotting star Ewan McGregor was second most popular with 12%.

The survey also showed that more people would like to have played with Barack Obama than David Beckham or the late golfing legend Seve Ballesteros.
