If you're celebrity watching, most will tee off this morning. Ronde Barber is off at 7:50, Nancy Lopez and Vince Gill tee off at 8, Jerry Rice is off at 8:10, Joe Theismann follows at 8:20, Dale Jarrett starts at 8:30, Fred McGriff is at 8:40, George Lopez and Craig T.

Long wait

Mike Hulbert, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, has waited four years to turn 50 and join the Champions Tour. His wait ends this week, though he doesn't tee off until 1 p.m. today with the last group. "I know I can put the tee in the ground," he said. "I'm pretty sure I can do that much."

They said it

"This is lousy weather. Give me 45 degrees with a 20 mile per hour wind."
