    Golf stars emerge days before the 2012 Ryder Cup to compete in the first-ever Captains & Celebrity Scramble Tuesday in Medinah.

    Celebs Bill Murray, Justin Timberlake, Michael Phelps and George Lopez are scheduled to play 10 holes alongside sports legends Ernie Banks, Richard Dent, Stan Mikita and Scottie Pippen.

    They'll be paired with past Ryder Cup Captains Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Dave Stockton, Hal Sutton, Lee Trevino and Lanny Wadkins in the scramble-style game on Medinah's Course No. 3.

    Michael Belot, director of this year's Ryder Cup calls the scramble "a lot of fun to watch and is another great activity that Ryder Cup fans who are attending Tuesday’s practice round can enjoy."

    “Our participating celebrities and past Ryder Cup Captains are excited to bring their best golf games to Medinah,” Belot said.

    The event kicks off at 1 p.m. as the first day of Ryder Cup practice rounds gets underway for the U.S. and European teams. The practice round is sold out.
