Outback Pro-Am star search

Star search

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. Nelson go at 8:50, and Stone Phillips tees off at 9:10, all from the 10th tee. The afternoon celebrities today are late addition Vinny Testaverde (noon) and Derrick Brooks (12:10).

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."

Tom Watson, left, half kidding about the 82 degree and sunny weather that is expected this weekend. He won last year in temperatures reaching the low 40s, with 30 mph gusts.
