As Chubbs would repeat to Happy Gilmore, “It’s all in the hips.” And while, presumably, she didn’t have a tragically one-handed former pro for an instructor, Shakira’s hips definitely do not lie.
The Colombian popstar has a great many skills, the most prominent of which, of course, is her powerhouse voice that belts out tunes in a multitude of different languages. And while her patented belly dancing techniques prove that she has ample physical prowess, it may surprise the casual fan that she’s an ace golfer, too.
Is there anything she can’t do?
In the video below, part of blog keeping track of her current tour, we get a glimpse of Shakira’s day out on the course in Mexico, where she shows off both her solid short game and picture-perfect swing. She’s actually been honing it for years, having spoken back in 2009 about her knack for the game.
“I love golf,” she said . “I’m really bad at sports, believe it or not. If you threw a ball at me, you would probably break my face because I have no reflexes whatsoever. But in golf, you just need concentration, of which I have plenty, and hip swing is very important.”
