YES! I win the prize. In my 2017/Legends Blog, I amused myself with the idea Mark Wahlberg would play this year in the Celebrity Skins Shootout at Legends of Golf. Now it’s news.

A friend of Johnny Morris, Mark has golfed Big Cedar Buffalo Ridge and dove with the fish at the red-carpet grand opening of Johnny Morris’s Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium. Now he can add to his Ozark travels, playing in the Legends of Golf Tournament.

For the Legends Celebrity Shoot Out, Wahlberg teams up with Gary Player. Kid Rock teams up with Jack Nicklaus, a winning duo in 2017. Other celebrities to grace the greens, Johnny Miller (1973 U.S. Open Champion) and Larry the Cable Guy; golfer Larry Nelson/Austin Dillon (race car driver)/Richard Childress (NASCAR team owner); golfer David Graham/sportsman John Paul Morris; Lee Trevino/Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame.

Update on April 2018 Legends of Golf: Paul Broadhurst and Kirk Triplett won the 2018 Legends of Golf Tournament.
