GREEN BAY – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and PGA Tour golfer Jerry Kelly are once again teaming up for the 2019 Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
It’s the sixth time in seven years the two-time MVP quarterback has partnered with the Madison native and three-time PGA Tour winner for the event, which begins Thursday morning in California and features 156 professionals and 156 amateurs.
Rodgers and Kelly, who are paired with Ho-sung Choi and actor Chris O’Donnell, will tee off Thursday at 11:17 a.m. CT on the back nine of Monterey Peninsula, one of three courses used for the event.
Rodgers and Kelly lobbied to be paired with Choi, whose unique “fisherman” golf swing has made the 45-year-old a cult hero of sorts on the Japan Golf Tour.
They’ll then start on the back nine of Spyglass Hill at 10:33 a.m. CT Friday and Pebble Beach at 12:01 p.m. Saturday.
The tournament is televised on the Golf Channel Thursday, Friday and Saturday before coverage moves to CBS on Saturday and Sunday (starting at noon both days).
Other celebrities participating in the event include Larry Fitzgerald, Matt Ryan, Wayne Gretzky, Tony Romo, Darius Rucker, Ray Romano and Huey Lewis.
