The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is mix of business and pleasure. All 156 professional golfers in the field were paired with an amateur partner for a pro-am portion of the event. They range from movie stars to professional athletes to masters of industry and beyond, but there are tiers of celebrity in the field.
Here are five of the most interesting celebrities in the field this week.
5. Josh Donaldson
The Toronto Blue Jays third baseman and reigning American League MVP is a solid player at a 4-handicap. Donaldson is playing alongside Jason Dufner this week.

3. Jim Harbaugh
The University of Michigan head man is a 12-handicap and always an interesting watch. Nearly guaranteed to be in khakis all week, Harbaugh will be playing alongside Matt Bettencourt.

2. Bill Murray
The O.G. of the new era Crosby Clambake, Murray plays off of an 8 handicap alongside DA Points. Come for the Caddyshack flashbacks, stay for the typical antics, like trying to throw an iron onto the 7th green from the tee.

1. Justin Timberlake
Timberlake is playing in the Pro-Am for the first time in six years, this time with Justin Rose. Timberlake is a solid player — near scratch at this point — and may do something out of the ordinary here and there, like take a guitar from the gallery and play an impromptu concert with Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
