PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Scott Langley, who was a teenager when he teamed with Dana Quigley to win the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, will be playing with another high-profile partner on the Monterey Peninsula this week.
Langley is partnered with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Interestingly, one of the Broncos' biggest fans on the PGA TOUR, Kevin Stadler, who won the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Super Bowl Sunday, has drawn former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Wisconsin's Jerry Kelly, on the other hand, gets to play with the heart and soul of his favorite team. The rabid Cheesehead gets to play with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who carries a 7 handicap.
Surprising no one, two-time champion Dustin Johnson will play with his soon-to-be father-in-law, Wayne Gretzky. The hockey great's handicap is 11.
In another family pairing, actor Oliver Hudson will play in the same foursome with his mother's long-time boyfriend Kurt Russell. Their partners, respectively, are Kyle Stanley and Tommy Gainey.
