Golf Digest US Open Celebrity Challenge, Bethpage 'Black', Long Island, NY June 12, 2009
June 12th, 2009. Bethpage's Black Golf Course, Long Island, NY. Steelers champion quarterback Ben Roethlisberger added another win to his successes with a score of 81, Michael Jordan finished with a 16-over-par 86 to take second in the four-player tournament, singer Justin Timberlake 88 and Larry Giebelhausen 101 . Phoenix police lieutenant Giebelhausen won a Golf Digest contest asking hopefuls to submit six-word essays explaining why they "Can Break 100" at Bethpage. Giebelhausen's winning six: "I'm a cop. I'll shoot low." Well-known golf pros served as caddies. Fred Couples caddied for Jordan, Rocco Mediate for Roethlisberger, and Anthony Kim carried Timberlake's bags on the challenging Bethpage Black course.
Justin Timberlake brought his "sexy back" to the golf course sporting J Lindberg golf clothing from his line. Timberlake also brought along his new investment; "901 Silver Tequila" which is launching in NYC and across the United States. 901 is reportedly named after JT's hometown of Memphis' area code. The New York launch is scheduled to occur at Tenjune in Manhattan's trendy meat packing district tomorrow night at 9:01pm.
The Golf Digest US Open Celebrity Challenge at Bethpage Black will air on June 21 at noon and lead into the final round of the US Open on NBC.
