Maroon 5 frontman and guitarist Adam Levine has been crowned winner of the Golf Channel’s hit original series The Haney Project.
After eight episodes following his progress under the tutelage of Hank Haney - the man who controversially wrote a book about his time with Tiger Woods – Levine claimed the ultimate bragging rights and the $40,000 prize, which he donated to the Teen Impact Program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
The Moves Like Jagger singer, who admitted he was ‘no good at golf’ at the start, edged out boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, celebrity chef Mario Batali and model Angie Everhart in the final showdown in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
“Winning The Haney Project is incredible - I really wanted that win,” said the 33-year-old Californian.
“But it’s nothing compared to what it means to be able to do this for Teen Impact. It’s an important program that helps kids and families deal with the psychological effects of cancer.
“Medicine can treat them physically but Teen Impact helps them heal emotionally. It’s humbling to know these funds will help make a difference in someone’s life.”
