Video: Celebrity Tuesday At The Ryder Cup; Bill Murray Tries To Pilfer Samuel Ryder's Trophy 

Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times was on hand and so was a video crew to capture the sweet-swinging Scottie Pippen, the also smooth-swinging Michael Phelps (who earned a groan for his tee shot) and the PGA Tour's favorite tournament host George Lopez. Bill Murray is in video #2.

But first, the results because I know you were dying to find out who won:

Murray teamed up with Justin Timberlake, Dick Stockton and Tom Lehman to finish tied for second at 6-under par. The winning team consisted of Michael Phelps, George Lopez, Hal Sutton and Lanny Wadkins, who finished at 9-under.


And the separate video for Bill Murray's first tee appearance.

Golf Channel sets their celeb highlights to music. Maybe to help us cope with the general awkwardness of celebrity golf?

Rick Reilly played with Phelps recently and said that he did't break 100, It won'r be long with a swing like that.
The Ryder Cup does not need a Celeb Pro Am. Leave it to the PGA to add an un-necessary element.

I was out there all day and the celebs helped spread the crowd so you could see some golf. Especially by the time the practice groups got to 15. Wind was coming straight into the players face. 1st group wasn't going to play short tee until crowd urged them to go at green.
