While I am sure it's possible to inflate Timberlake's influence, it's surely got to be a plus in terms of encouraging young guys that golf may be a lot cooler than they think.

Not only am I serious Jeff, I may have underestimated Timberlake's impact. You can't overestimate it after all.

Seriously, I'm not saying he's going to make the tournament into the Masters or even the Barclays. But I believe he's going to draw more interest it to than it's ever had before.

They've gotten Phil Mickelson to show in Vegas before and still nobody came out to watch. That's because the traditional golf fans in Vegas are all too busy at the tables.

It's the nontraditional ones who are going to help this tournament. Those are the folks Timberlake will bring out.

I don't think he'll just show up for the Pro Am and bolt either. I get the sense if he puts his name on something, he's going to be there every day, trying to make sure it's a success.

Chris -

I guess we will wait and see. I hate being cynical about this, and I will be the first to write that you called it if it turns out to be true. Promise that.

It's old news that Timberlake is interested in "finding himself" as a pro golfer. Good news is, if he's not good enough to play on the PGA Tour, then why not host an event?

If Baldwin is right, Jeff has to do a live rendition via webcast of "Bye Bye Bye" for all WorldGolf.com readers.

Or perhaps a cover of "Putter inna box."

Forget bye bye bye, he needs to perform SEXY BACK, since he uses terms like "spot on" and is clearly advancing rapidly toward old coot status. Remember, Whitey, it will be Timberlake AND COMPANY that bring this sexy back. If he can marshal the troops of young guys and ladies to come on by, play, perform at local casinos, and on and on, then he will have an impact. It will be a package deal, without question.
