There are plenty of sports stars stepping out of their comfort zone this weekend to play in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Some of the best athletes in the world can be made to look like fools on the golf course, and that will be happening this weekend at the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Some of the best in football, baseball, tennis, hockey and even surfing will try to keep up with actors who may be lacking in athleticism but have more time to spend on honing their golf game. The second round of action kicks off Friday morning.
Recently retired tennis star Andy Roddick will get things going at 11:55 a.m. ET with partner John Mallinger. They will be paired up with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Jerry Kelly. Mallinger and Roddick finished the first day three strokes behind the leaders at 8-under, while Rodgers and Kelly didn't fare quite as well. They are at 3-under and have to make up plenty of ground.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh just lost the Super Bowl, but he is position to compete for the Pebble Beach Pro-Am title. Harbaugh and partner Jason Day will start Round 2 just two strokes behind the leader at 1:01 p.m.
Harbaugh isn't the only football coach hitting the links. Bill Belichick and Brian Kelly are in the same grouping at 11 a.m. Belichick holds the bragging rights over Kelly so far, as he sits at 4-under and two strokes ahead of the Notre Dame head coach.
Wayne Gretzky probably plays more golf than many of his other sporting counterparts, and it showed on Thursday. He and partner Dustin Johnson are at 9-under and tied for third. They'll start their second round at 11:22 a.m.
Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander might be the best pitcher in baseball, but he isn't representing his sport all that well on the golf course. He sits in a tie for 118th with partner Robert Garrigus. Aces are known for shaky starts but getting into a groove down the stretch, and Verlander will try to do just that at 12:39 p.m.
Tony Romo went against his trend of slow starts for the Cowboys this season by partnering with Jordan Spieth for an 8-under on Thursday. Romo will try to keep it going alongside country music star Jake Owen at 11:44 a.m. on Friday.
