    Comedian and golf fanatic George Lopez will be providing the laughs at this year's Ryder Cup.

    The former late night talk show host will perform at the 39th Ryder Cup Gala on Sept. 26, at the Akoo Theater in Rosemont. It's an event held the night before the Ryder Cup tees off on the grounds of the historic Medinah Country Club.

    Lopez will be joined at the Gala by fellow celebrity Justin Timberlake, who will serve as the first ever Ambassador for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.

    Tickets for the event are still available through and prices range from $100 to $300 per ticket.

    The next day, "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks will perform the National Anthem for the Opening Ceremonies.

    This year's Ryder Cup takes place at Medinah Country Club from Sept. 25-30.
