Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning Will Be Paired Up For Pro-Am, But Who Gets Stuck With Berman?

shootout-chrisbermanTwo superstars that transcend their respective sports will be teamed-up at the Quail Hollow pro-am as Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods will tee-off in the same group at 7:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning.

Manning, who probably would have preferred having Kenny Chesney as his partner as he washed his balls at the first tee box, has previously played this pro-am with Sergio Garcia but has played with Tiger before at the Arnold Palmer Invitational three years ago.

While the star power of the Manning/Woods pairing is certainly intriguing, what I want to know is which pro will have to suffer through 18 holes with Chris Berman, who is also scheduled to play in the pro-am. Obviously, the PGA player best-suited to play with the Berminator would be, of course, John Daly, but unfortunately the Round Mound of Unsound is not among the professional golfers slated to participate.

Some possible playing partners for Berman, along with some cheesy Bermanisms I came up with myself (that I’m confident he would use if given the chance):

  • Stewart “Everything But The Kitchen” Cink
  • Jonathan “I’m O-” Kaye, “You’re Okay”
  • Vijay Singh “For His Supper”
  • Jason “Give The Dog A” Bohn
  • Steve “In The” Flesch
  • Robert “I’m Livin’ Here In” Allenby
  • Martin Laird “Of The Flies”
  • Chris DiMarco “Polo”
  • Rocco “My Divorce Decree States My Ex And I Have To” Mediate
  • Spencer Levin “Every Minute Of It”
  • Glen “That’ll Be The” Day
  • Kevin “Sha Na” Na

Ugh. I feel so unclean now. I’ll have to scrub for hours to wash this stank off.
