Justin Timberlake is getting his own golf tournament!
The 26-year-old four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, record producer and actor will host the PGA Tour event in Las Vegas, which will be renamed the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. The five-year agreement begins next year.
“I couldn’t be more excited,” said Justin, who plays to a 6-handicap. “We will make sure to make this event unique and memorable…We will raise money for charity while participating in the greatest game ever played. I thank the PGA Tour and the Shriners Hospitals for Children for this amazing opportunity. Raising money to better children’s lives while playing golf? I can’t think of a better way to pass the time.”
The Justin Timberlake Golf Tournament kicks off Oct. 13-19, 2008.
