Justin Timberlake, Bill Murray and Olympic swimming great Michael Phelps were among a slew of famous names who putted their way through the first Ryder Cup Captains and Celebrity Scramble on Tuesday (September 25th).
With the cup itself set to kick off on Friday (September 28th) the aim of the Captain and Celebrity Scramble was to provide a bit of light relief and warm-up entertainment, with stars teaming up with professional players over a 10-hole game at the Medinah Country Club in Illinois, the same venue where the Ryder Cup proper will tee off.
On confidence alone, professionals should've been clamouring to team up with Timberlake, give the great reception his new look Myspace has been attracting this week. However, he like many of the celebrities was more interested in playing up to the crowd than taking his own game seriously. So whilst the professionals carried the burden of the teams, the likes of Caddyshack star Murray indulged in joking around front the crowd whilst comedian George Lopez smoked a cigar and ordered beers for his team. The eventual winners were Lopez and swimmer Phelps, the latter's competitive spirit still shining through; Murray and his teammate Timberlake came second.
