Johnny Damon of the Tampa Bay Rays Golfing at Walt Disney World Resort

Today was Media Day for next month’s PGA TOUR golf tournament at Walt Disney World and we revealed the list of celebrities who are expected to play alongside the Tour pros in the pro-am.

It’s a pretty impressive group. Jerome “The Bus’’ Bettis (Pittsburgh Steelers), Alonzo Mourning (Miami Heat), Steve Young (San Francisco 49ers), Johnny Damon (Tampa Bay Rays), Anthony Anderson (Law & Order) and Derrick Brooks (Tampa Bay Bucs) are just a few of the names playing this year in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic on Disney’s Palm and Magnolia golf courses. And more are expected to enter before the event, Oct. 20-23.

We also announced today that Joe Ogilvie, a veteran pro, will be one of the four tournament sponsor exemption players competing in the tournament, which is the last TOUR event of the season. The rest of the field will once again be a unique mix of established champions and rising stars, including defending champion Robert Garrigus, all trying to join the likes of Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and Jack Nicklaus as winners of the tournament.

Fans will notice a few changes this year beyond the fact that the event takes place nearly a month earlier. For example, the popular Wine & Dine feature will be centrally located in one area near the putting green by the clubhouse where fans can sip on fine wines and sample unique international cuisine.

Tournament tickets ($10 single-day and $20 weekly badges) and Wine & Dine tickets ($30) are still available at or through

Hey, if you’d rather play in the tournament rather than just watch, there are still a few spots left in the pro-am. Call (407) 938-3501 to tee it up with Bettis, Young, Damon, Mourning, Anderson and the pros.
