The Quaid Trap

21 Bruce McGill: Star of Animal House and best known as "The Haig" in The Legend of Bagger Vance, McGill has a smooth swing that holds up in competition. He's an eight-handicap.

22 Rick Dees: Radio DJ superstar Dees has appeared in movies (La Bamba) and on television (Roseanne, Cheers), but his favorite appearance is at Lakeside Golf Club, where he's been a longtime member. Dees is not a big guy, but his game packs a lot of punch. He can hit the ball a long way and often shoots in the seventies.

23 Samuel L. Jackson: When not making movies, Jackson is playing golf or working on his own celebrity charity golf tournament. Jackson is a nine-handicap.

24 William Devane: Film and television star Devane splits his play between golf and polo while in Palm Springs. He is a ten-handicap.

25 Scott Wolf: The former Party of Five TV star is a strong stick and a ten-handicap.

Robert Z. Chew is the co-author of Golf in Hollywood: Where the Stars Come Out to Play. His first golf mystery novel, The Halfway Dead, will be out this fall.
