Justin Timberlake was speaking at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Tuesday when he gave a unique endorsement of one of the tournament's biggest draws.
"Andy Garcia is going to be here; Jerry Rice is gonna be here," Timberlake said, when asked to talk up his tournament, which will be played at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, Thursday through Sunday. "I don't know. Yeah, Rickie Fowler. You know, that should get some young girls out here, shouldn't it? Right?
"Rickie Fowler is like -- I don't know, I think he's cooler than Justin Bieber," added Timberlake, who admits he's neglected his golf game while doing press for The Social Network and shooting two other films. "Did I throw the gauntlet down? Oh, whatever. I'm taking Rickie Fowler."
