American Century Celebrity Championship in Lake Tahoe

8 posts in this topic

This is one of my favorite events of year. They hold it from July 15th to 17th, but they don't air it on the Golf Channel until... right now (I think they air it live on a different network over the summer)... I dunno, I have some weird fascination with watching celebs play golf.

Some observations:

Dan Quayle uses a broom stick.

Most of these guys are really good.

Playing at elevation looks like a lot of fun (I'm seeing a lot of 170 yard nine irons and PWs).

Hank Haney is walking the course with Charles Barkley. Doesn't seem to be helping much though.

(slightly modified) Stableford scoring looks like a lot of fun.

True - it aired live on ESPN and NBC.

Me too, plus it's a beautiful course and area. The wife and I are thinking of heading up there to spectate next time.

It was pretty hilarious watching Carlton from Fresh Prince do the "Carlton" dance after some of his good shots. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ray Allen was a scratch player. He really impressed me.

Joe Sakic had a nice hole in one for a million bucks too.

Yea, Tahoe really is beautiful. You should go to the event. It looks like a lot of fun.

Having been to the event and played the course, I highly reccommend going if you are able. If you get to play, be sure to get a chocolate milk shake at the turn...

Maybe we should remove the "2011" in the thread title and just make this the catch-all for all American Century Classic discussion from now on.

I should be golfed out with Muirfield going, but I got the DVR running, and am looking forward to watching this at some point. NBC Sports is covering it today, followed by NBC on Saturday and Sunday.

Always a fun event.

Unfortunately, you can't watch the novelty that is Charles Barkley's swing since he withdrew due to a bum shoulder.

Ahh, that's too bad. Injuries suck. Hope your back is feeling better BTW.

In general though this event is quite the ensemble spectacle. No one guy makes the event for me. However, I don't see Jordan anywhere... he get hurt?
