Celebrity Disc Golf

Anybody know of any celebrities that actually disc golf? Not the Conan O'Brien clip from a few years back, I mean really play at least occasionally.

Masters champion Bubba Watson is a PDGA member.

Matthew Perry has been known to show up at courses around L.A. and rub elbows with some of disc golf's elite:

I spotted Huey Lewis out at Blue Mountain back home in Missoula, MT a few years back (he lives close) but he was throwing around a big ol' Wham-O type Frisbee, so I can neither confirm nor deny he does it on the regular. He works a lot with the Special Olympics and I know a lot of the Special Olympians in my hometown play (and are really good, I might add) so maybe that had something to do with it, I dunno.

NFL QB David Garrard plays disc golf, so does NBA player Kyle Singler.

The most accomplished celebrity is clearly Ben Askren. Dude was an Olympian and was the Big 12 Athelte of the year (all sports) after winning back to back national championships.

I wrote an article in Disc Golfer magazine last year about him. Really great guy.
