Timberlake To Host PGA Tournament

Well it's the seventh sign of the Apocalypse Justin Timberlake is getting his own golf tournament.

The 26-year-old singer will host the PGA Tour event held in Las Vegas, and guess what it will be named "Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open".

Timberlake becomes the 14th celebrity to host an event. His name is joining the likes of Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Glen Campbell. Not a category I'd put Justin Timberlake in but I guess money talks. It's a five year agreement too so we'll see lots of Justin
at the Las Vegas tournament which is part of the Fall Series in October, played after the FedEx Cup. George McNeill won it this year and is the defending champ.

"We will make sure to make this event unique and memorable, and we will raise money for charity while participating in the greatest game ever played," Timberlake said in a statement Monday. "Raising money to better children's lives while playing golf? I can't think of a better way to pass the time."
Good for you Justin hope you raise lots for the kids.
