The 22nd annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship will take place in just a few days, running from July 15th-17th. The tournament, a sure-fire entertaining watch featuring your favorite celebrities, will take place at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada.

85 competitors, from professional athletes to actors, will square off over three rounds of golf for their chance to claim the $125,000 first place prize. Here's the breakdown of participants by profession: 37 NFL players and coaches, 14 MLB players, 10 NBA coaches and players, 10 actors, and seven NHL players.

Our Arizona Cardinals will have two representatives in the competition: head coach Ken Whisenhunt and linebacker Joey Porter. Whisenhunt stands at 20/1 odds, and he will look to improve on last year's finish of 18th overall. Porter will be making his first appearance at the tournament this year.

Several other newcomers to the tournament this year include Matt Cassel, Joey Porter, Tim Tebow, Jimmer Fredette and Deron Williams. You can find the complete of players at this link.
