This Just In: Charity Golf Tournaments Attract Famous People


Celebrities: they’re just like us! I would never have realized that wealthy people with way too much time on their hands would like to golf. You know, with golf being the sport of the common person and all.

But I guess the rich and famous are beginning to take notice of the fringe sport of golf. Case in point: celebrities, as well as people who actually play the game professionally, turned out in droves to take part in Justin Timberlake’s charity golf tournament.

Instead of hitting the red carpet, celebrities stepped onto the golf course today for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Pro-Am competition.

The event was broken into morning and afternoon tee-offs with 36 groups participating, including professional golfers, amateurs and celebrities.

And the stars! Oh, the stars! Featured celebrities that joined pros Anthony Kim, Davis Love III and Rich Beem included Alice Cooper (!), Oscar De La Hoya (!!), Alfonso Ribiero (!!!), George Lopez (!!!!) and last but not least, “television personality” Sal Masekela (?).

Does anybody know who in the hell this dude is? And I wonder if he is aware that George Lopez has a new talk show on TBS coming out soon.

But by far my favorite photo from the day didn’t even feature a celebrity:


Sweet Jesus, that is one disturbing looking person. He looks like the perverse offspring if Alex Rodriguez and Tim Robbins could somehow mate.
