Justin Timberlake Championship Pro-Am

October 16, 2009

On Wednesday, I was lucky enough to be able to duck out of work early and head over to the TPC Summerlin Golf Course to catch some of the Justin Timberlake Championship Pro-Am. We spent most of the afternoon on “The Hill” which is basically a 22,000 square foot tent on a hill that over looks 16th, 17th and 18th holes. Towards the end of the day we headed down to the 18th fairway, by the bunkers on the right hand side, to watch the last few groups through. The groups we saw finish up their round were:

Group 19:

Pro – Anthony Kim
Amateurs – Justin Timberlake, Sal Masekela, David Bomar
Group 20:
Pro – Rich Beam
Amateurs – Oscar De La Hoya, George Lopez, Bhupesh Wadhawan

Group 21:
Pro – Nick Watney
Amateurs – Natalie Gulbis (shwing), Ray Peterson, Stacey Shiew

Group 22:
Pro – Davis Love, III
Amateurs – Don Wordell, Ed Wagner, Jeremy Guthrie

Here some pictures I snapped since we were allowed to have our cameras on the course on Wednesday…
