If you are a fan of celebrities and golf, then the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was tailor-made — no pun intended — for you. Kicking off today from Pebble Beach, Calif., the event will treat Golf Channel and CBS viewers to some great links and star sightings over the next four days.
Bill Murray and D.A. Points will be back to defend their title of a year ago when they shot 35 under-par. And while things are all business in terms of wanting to win the event, it’s Murray’s antics and jokes — and the appearances by the non-golf stars — that make this such a unique event. Where else are you going to find Tiger Woods and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo hanging out together?
Other celebs from the sports and entertainment arena competing are Bill Belichick, Jim Harbaugh, Andy Garcia, George Lopez, Anthony Anderson, Ray Romano, Don Cheadle, Darius Rucker, Josh Duhamel, Bob Stoops and Michael Bolton. Among the pros joining them will be Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Rickie Fowler, Geoff Ogilvy, Brandt Snedeker, Ian Poulter, Zach Johnson and Vijay Singh.
Golf Channel’s coverage will be handled by Rich Lerner, Nick Faldo, Peter Oosterhuis, David Feherty, Matt Gogel and Steve Sands. Here is when and where you can catch the live broadcasts between today and Sunday (all times Eastern):
