Multi-talented actor and musical artist Justin Timberlake will join superstar athletes and entertainers for the first time this summer at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, July 14-19 (TahoeCelebrityGolf.com). The much-decorated performer is an avid golfer who plays to a six handicap and is renowned in the sport for his philanthropic endeavors.
He will join an already-impressive lineup of more than 80 sports and entertainment celebrities, including TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley, NFL MVP and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, TV personality Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty and a host of current pro athletes and retired Hall of Famers. The 26th annual tournament raises money for multiple charities and offers free admission to military personnel and guests.
With major television exposure (NBC Sports, NBCSN, Golf Channel) and a purse of $600,000, the American Century Championship is the most prestigious celebrity tournament in golf. The 2015 event tees off July 17-19 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course on the shores of the largest alpine lake in North America.
“We’ve been talking to Justin Timberlake for years about joining the American Century Championship field and his schedule coincides with our tournament dates this year,” said Jon Miller, President of Programming for NBC Sports, which owns and operates the tournament. “He will be a dynamic attraction for the galleries and a perfect fit with the celebrities who come to Lake Tahoe every July.”
In 2007, the PGA Tour announced Timberlake as the host of its 2008 Las Vegas tour stop. The tournament was renamed the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open from 2008-2012. In addition to lending his name to the event and attending the tournaments, Timberlake also raised money for the Shriners Hospitals via concert performances during weekend activities.
One of today’s most successful recording artists, Timberlake’s work has earned him six Grammy Awards® and four Emmy Awards®. As an actor, Timberlake has starred in such acclaimed films as the Academy Award®-nominated The Social Network as well as hit movies including Friends With Benefits, Bad Teacher, Trouble With The Curve and Inside Llewyn Davis. In 2013, he released his album The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience which became the best-selling album of the year. Time named Timberlake one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2007 and 2013.
Along with the sports and entertainment stars, Timberlake will join two bona fide heroes in the field. United States Army Sergeant Major Rodney Gorman, and retired United States Army Corporal Chad Pfeifer, both winners of the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Warrior Open. Gorman, a Gulf War veteran who has also experienced multiple deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, is 90 percent disabled with several shrapnel wounds including in his left forearm. Pfeifer, who finished fifth in last year’s tournament, lost his left leg to an IED explosion in Iraq in 2007.
As part of the tournament’s special tribute to America’s military, all active duty, reservists, National Guard and veterans can receive two complimentary tickets per day, including one for a guest at the 26th annual tournament.

Pop music superstar Justin Timberlake and his family have sold Mirimichi, the golf course they opened in 2009 near the Shelby Forest area where he grew up, to Memphis businessman Fred Edmaiston.
WHERE does international popstar and avid golfer Justin Timberlake go to have a hit while in Adelaide? Nowhere apparently, with the exclusive Royal Adelaide Golf Club too busy for the SexyBack singer on the weekend.
Timberlake’s entourage, including his security detail, reportedly scoped out the highly-rated course at Seaton on Sunday afternoon but the perfect spring conditions ensured the manicured fairways and greens were already overrun by players.
Timberlake, whose golf handicap is said to be in single figures, previously played nine holes at Royal Adelaide when he was in town back in 2007.
Club general manager Andrew Gay said he was unaware the megastar was considering playing the course when contacted by The Advertiser.
Timberlake jetted into Adelaide on Saturday, enjoying a quiet evening at his CBD hotel. Unable to get a game in on Sunday he headed out to Norwood’s Hoyts cinema for a screening of the new animated children’s flick, Planes: Fire & Rescue .
Wearing a yellow baseball cap, green top, khaki pants and white sneakers, Timberlake — who was minus actress wife Jessica Biel — was ushered into the complex through a back entrance by an entourage of about 12 people, including a van full of security guards.
Surprisingly, the singer, who’s rumoured be trying to start a family with Biel, didn’t secure the entire cinema, and was joined by other patrons for the screening.
Only a small group of fans were aware of Timberlake’s appearance at the film, which was a closely guarded secret. The cinema remained tight-lipped after signing confidentiality forms prior to his arrival.
Hey, isn’t that … Justin Timberlake, on the greens at Congressional Country Club on Tuesday afternoon?
The triple-threat entertainer (sporting a natty striped golf shirt) took a break from his “20/20 Experience” tour, after a Monday-night performance in Baltimore, to hit the links at the famed golf course.Justin was spotted with Congressional President Steve Durante and two other men — word is that JT connected with Durante through his daughter, country singer Maggie Rose.
Alas, a rainstorm cut the round short (one source says Timberlake was putting for an eagle before the washout), and the group hit the clubhouse for lunch. The crowd in the restaurant, accustomed to VIPs, played it cool.
But a group of kids — campers whose activities had also been canceled because of the weather — weren’t as blase, gathering outside the adults-only dining area to gawk at the star. On his way out, the affable Timberlake posed for a picture with the young folks in the club’s pro shop.
he’s the only person that makes golf look so sexy!

Justin Timberlake is seen enjoying 18 holes of golf at Lakeside Golf Course with his mates on a beautiful sunny day in Los Angeles. Justin, who is good enough to hold his own with a golf pro, showed how serious he was by using a range finding pair of binoculars to judge the distance to his next hole and then later on after a great putt he showed his great reflexes by doing a little maneuver with his golf buddy where they throw their golf balls in the air to each other then quickly high five before catching the balls before they hit the ground.
