The 'Jealous' hitmaker is a big fan of the outdoor game and always looks for the nearest course wherever he is in the world.

He said: "I'm a huge fan of golf. It's my favourite pastime. It's the thing i would do every day if I could. It's a great game and it helps me stay sane.

"When I'm on tour and there's a great course nearby, the first thing I will do when I have a spare moment is try to find it."

The 22-year-old singer was born in Texas and raised in New Jersey but now count Los Angeles as home after moving there for the sake of his career.

Asked where he regards as home, he said: "Now it's Los Angeles, then Texas. Family is back in Texas so I go to see them.

"However, I was in New York for two years up to last January and I miss it very much but I had to move to LA for the acting and recording."

Though Nick visits his family in Texas, he insists he has no plans for a musical reunion with his brothers and former Jonas Brothers bandmates Joe and Kevin.

He told GQ magazine: "I still talk to my brothers a few times a week but that chapter of our lives is closed. Now it's all about reinventing myself."
