In 1937 Bing Crosby invited some friends to play golf and the celebrity pro-am was born. Every year players join up with some of Hollywood’s biggest names to play Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monetary Peninsula.

Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Justin Rose make up an enormous field of PGA TOUR talent.

Apparently Mark Wahlberg and Justin Timberlake had to persuade Bubba Watson and Justin Rose to take the plunge.

The highlight of this unique tournament is getting the chance to see people like Bill Murray play a round of golf. The comedy legend plays off 12.

Marky Mark reportedly has a handicap of 8 and rarely goes a day without hitting balls.

You might be surprised to learn Justin Timberlake plays off 6, putting him in the the top 10% of all male golfers.
