THE US PGA TOUR heads to the iconic Pebble Beach this week for the popular AT&T National Pro Am Championship.

The pros play with an assorted cast of actors, sporting stars and associated “celebrities” on three courses.

Those making the cut and the qualifying pro-am teams battle it out on Sunday at Pebble Beach.

After his emphatic win last week, the four-time winner here Phil Mickelson is an obvious highlight while other contenders include two-time winner Dustin Johnson, the in-form Brandt Snedeker, a much more in-touch looking Padraig Harrington and Englishman Lee Westwood.

Aussie competitors include Jason Day, Aaron Baddeley, Geoff Ogilvy, Stuart Appleby, Rod Pampling, Cameron Percy, Alistair Presnell, Scott Gardiner, Matt Jones, Steve Bowditch, Nick O’Hern and Nathan Green.

Day is playing with Superbowl losing San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh (12 handicap) – so maybe they are both due for a win.

Other celebs include actors Bill Murray (12), Ray Romano (16) Chris O’Donnell (8) and Andy Garcia (9), tennis star Andy Roddick (6) surfer Kelly Slater (4), and

Condoleezza Rice (17), one of the first two female members at Augusta National.

Baddeley will be playing along with the maybe delightful sounds of musician Kenny G, who has a very respectable 2 handicap.

Live Fox Sports coverage of the event begins Friday 7am to 10am.
