How good are these celebrities at golf? Aaron Rodgers is a 4-handicap, and he barely cracks the Top 10. All-world NFL players Peyton Manning, Steve Young and Larry Fitzgerald need to shave a half-dozen strokes off their games to make this list. Even Cinderella Story Bill Murray – who deserves degree of difficulty divisors for the energy he puts into endlessly entertaining rowdy crowds between, during and after every shot – is on the outside looking in.
Here are the 10 best celebrity golfers at the 2017 AT&T:
The Great One plays in family games with Dustin Johnson, but the NHL’s greatest goal scorer admits that he’ll never be a scratch golfer. He played to a 9 at last year’s AT&T.
This Sports Illustrated swimsuit model’s home course growing up was Winged Foot. Rohrbach played on the Georgetown women’s golf team before pursuing a career in acting. She’ll be starring in a remake of Baywatch later this year. The 27-year-old still keeps up her game, owning a 5.8 index.
The two-time NFL MVP and Green Bay Packers quarterback loves playing golf in the offseason. Currently sporting a 4.0 index, Rodgers played with President Obama in 2016, proudly carding a 75.
An 11-time World Surf League champion, Slater picked up golf at the age of 23 but quickly became hooked, telling the PGA TOUR that he plays 150 rounds a year. He played to a 3-handicap in the 2015 AT&T.
JT loves golf. He’s hosted a PGA TOUR event for five years (the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas), and even bought the golf course he grew up on outside Memphis. He played to a 2-handicap in last year’s AT&T.
The legendary saxophonist who has sold more than 75 million records worldwide tied for first at the 2001 AT&T, playing as a 6-handicap with Phil Mickelson. By 2006, Kenny G was a plus-handicap, prompting Golf Digest to name him music’s No. 1 golfer. He played as a 3-handicap in last year’s event.
The 2015 American League MVP and former Oakland A’s third baseman has a career low of 65 at his home club in Alabama. While in Oakland, he had planned to play a bucket-list round at Pebble Beach during the All-Star Break in 2014, but he actually made the AL team, and had to skip his tee time. He finally played Pebble Beach in the AT&T last year, entering the event as a 3-handicap.
The country singer with six No. 1 singles was a serious high school golfer. He shot a 4-under 68 on his own ball at Pebble Beach playing as a 3-handicap alongside Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson during the 2015 AT&T.
The rap/country singer chased the dream of playing professional golf on the mini-tours in the ‘90s. He played in one Web.com Tour event, missing the cut by two after shooting 71-75. Playing to a 2-handicap in the 2015 AT&T, Ford shot an opening 66 with his own ball on The Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club.
