Stars To Take On Bethpage Black
By Kickntrue on 5/27/09
Justin Timberlake, Michael Jordan and Ben Roethlisberger will join one lucky guy, Phoenix policeman Larry Giebelhausen to play Bethpage Black a week before the US Open. It is the second annual Golf Digest U.S. Open Challenge. Last year Timberlake and Tony Romo joined the first lucky winner.
GÇ£IGÇÖm really looking forward to it,GÇ¥ Roethlisberger said. GÇ£ItGÇÖs a great bunch of guys IGÇÖll be playing against. And (PGA Tour star) Rocco Mediate will be caddying for me. ItGÇÖll be an honor to play that course with those guys and an honor to have Rocco as my caddie.GÇ¥

Jordan, Timberlake and Roethlisberger all have established single-digit USGA handicaps. Giebelhausen, 58, was a chosen via an online essay contest in which Golf Digest asked participants to explain why they GÇ£Can Break 100GÇ¥ at Bethpage. GiebelhausenGÇÖs winning response was GÇ£IGÇÖm a cop. IGÇÖll shoot low.GÇ¥
Depsite being single digit handicappers, I'd expect the stars to all shoot in the high 80's and 90's.

For some reason I just can't picture Big Ben swinging a club. I look forward to seeing how well he does.

I just hope the cop doesn't get caught up in the side games. He'll find out Quarter Skins, meant $250k each, much too late.

I thought I heard after last years round that Timberlake wasn't going to do these anymore.

I'd be willing to take any bet that none of them will break 100!! Any takers???
