Ray Romano really loves golf. As such, he really loves the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am because when else do amateurs – even if they’re celebrities – get to play right along with the professionals during a real event?
That’s why Romano feels like every day is Christmas morning when he’s at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and why we can’t sleep leading up the event. But he wants to win. He’s not just out there to ogle the pros and rub elbows with fellow celebrities. The man even worked with noted golf instructor Hank Haney to get his score consistently under 80.
And he’s still looking for tips. So while doing an interview with PGA.com and expounding on his love for the event, Romano got distracted by the sight of Graeme McDowell giving a swing tip to musician Kenny G:
Now, Romano had a logical beef. Kenny G is probably the best golfer out there who doesn’t golf for a living. Romano could use pro tips more than Kenny.
But it’s funny that the celebs were jokingly fighting over McDowell rather than seeking advice from their pro partners this week. It makes sense, though – McDowell is currently ranked 15th in the world while Kenny G’s partner, Aaron Baddeley, is 206th and Romano’s partner, Will Claxton, ranks 505th.
Nevertheless, after two rounds of play it was Claxton/Romano in a tie for 74th, McDowell and his father Kenny at T-90, and Baddeley/Kenny G at T-101.
