The stars will be out in full force for the 39th Ryder Cup matches next week at Medinah Country Club, just west of Chicago, IL. Celebrities, entertainers and sports stars will be paired with past Ryder Cup Captains to play a 10-hole golf event.
Expected to attend are Bill Murray, Justin Timberlake, Michael Phelps and George Lopez along with local Chicago sports legends Ernie Banks, Richard Dent, Stan Mikita and Scottie Pippen. The 2012 Ryder Cup Captains & Celebrity Scramble golf event will take place on Tuesday, September 25, three days before the Ryder Cup officially gets underway.
Participating past Ryder Cup Captains will include Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Dave Stockton, Hal Sutton, Lee Trevino and former CBS commentator Lanny Wadkins. The Ryder Cup Captains & Celebrity Scramble golf event will start at 1PM CT, on the first day of official 2012 Ryder Cup practice rounds. Fans with tickets for Tuesday’s sold-out practice round will also be able to watch the scramble.
In addition, juniors age 17 and under will be admitted free of charge to the grounds on all practice round days – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – during Ryder Cup week if accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult. A maximum of two junior tickets may be obtained per Ryder Cup ticketed adult on these days at the Admission Sales/Will Call Office. Junior tickets are available on these days regardless of the fact that tickets have been sold out since last year.
“The 2012 Ryder Cup Captains & Celebrity Scramble will be a lot of fun to watch and is another great activity that Ryder Cup fans who are attending Tuesday’s practice round can enjoy,” said 2012 Ryder Cup Director Michael Belot. “Our participating celebrities and past Ryder Cup Captains are excited to bring their best golf games to Medinah.”
