Sunday Sights at the Bass Pro Legends of Golf

An eventful Sunday at the Bass Pro Legends of Golf that included a hole-in-one, the oldest winner in PGA Tour Champions history and a tie for the celebrity competition.

The winning team of Tom Pernice, Jr. and Scott Hoch both put their name in the record books on Sunday. Pernice knocked in a hole in one on the Top of the Rock course and his teammate Hoch, at 63 years old, is the oldest winner in PGA Tour Champions history.

The duo finished at 23-under-par, five strokes ahead of two other teams.

In the celebrity event, it ended up a tie: Gary Player and Mark Wahlberg tied with Jerry Pate and Tyler Toney from Dude Perfect.

Most of the celebrities left without speaking to the media. Timberlake commented he was happy to be there to support Johnny Morris because conservation is “very near and dear to my heart.”

Kid Rock, however, held court with the press, regaling them with tales of playing golf with President Trump, even sharing a story where his brother came along on the recent outing between the President and Rock. He said his brother was invited to hit a drive with the President’s driver, and he out-drove the President. Trump then joked he was going to fire Rock and take his brother on his team instead.

“I always thought Obama was about the coolest because he’s cool,” Kid Rock said. “I don’t agree with his politics but he’s cool. Like Trump smoked him, he’s way cooler.”

Here are some of the sights of the final day of the Bass Pro Legends of Golf from Top of the Rock:
