If you have never played golf, probably you'll never understand the appeal. But when you are like many celebrities--whether they've been playing for decades or perhaps recently started to tee it up--you'll agree that the game comes with an strange appeal that may eat up you.

Tennis has experienced a surge in popularity recently, so much so that the game--long and mistakenly considered a less-than-physically-challenging sport--is inspiring yoga and Pilates work-outs. Celebrity players, who usually pay fitness instructors large money to help them be in shape and help them remain physically fit--say there are a few definite physical benefits associated with a trip on the links.

Authorities say you can get the most out-of a round of golf if you stroll the course, the period of which can measure about 5 miles, with respect to the course. Walking builds strength, improves your cardio-vascular health and enables you to burn a reasonable level of calories. You can get an upper-body work-out too, if you take your clubs. And hitting the ball really can improve your hand-eye coordination, which can be of use in many other areas.
