2009 Celebrity Golf Tournament is almost here!

With the 2009 American Celebrity Golf Championship just a week away the excitement around the Edgewood Tahoe golf course is heating up. The golf course is in great shape and as usual the weather should be perfect for the 20th anniversary of this star-studded event. Speaking of stars, there are almost 20 first timers to the event this year. Athletes such as Buffalo Bills QB, Trent Edwards, former NFL All-Pro Safety, John Lynch, MMA fighter Chuck Liddell and Houston Rockets Forward, Shane Battier are among those scheduled to attend. I wonder if Battier is rested up enough after trying to guard Kobe Bryant durning the NBA Playoffs? Also teeing it up for the first time are Professional Poker Player, Daniel Negreanu and Actor Oliver Hudson from Rules of Engagement. However you like your celebrities, there is something for everyone at this year's tournament.

Most of the talk around the golf community has to be about the swing of former NBA All-Star Charles Barkley. Earlier this year Sir Charles was paired up with Tiger Wood's guru swing coach, Hank Haney in a Golf Channel series call "The Haney Project". If anyone could fix the worst swing in golf it had to be Hank. Charles seemed to be making great progress, but under pressure he would always revert back to his old self. This is the first time Charles will test his new swing in the heat of competition and I can't wait to see what happens. I wonder if the Casino's are taking odds on this one?

If you're lucky enough to be attending this year's tournament I hope to see you up in Lake Tahoe. Don't forget you can always log onto to catch up on all the action.

My mission since March 2009 is to get ahold of Charles Barkley, teach him the ridiculously simple and unbelievably effective Over The Top Golf swing, be invited to the Tahoe tournament as a spectator and watch Charles bomb drive after drive straight down the fairways. Everyone in attendance will be in shock and I will then proceed to make ten or twenty million dollars selling my DVD!

Anyone seen Charles?
