Default Celebrities Disc Golfing

Here is a little nugget for thought. Awhile back my wife showed me an article in one of her entertainment magazines. It was some photos and a brief interview with Matthew Perry about him playing Disc Golf. So I thought I would ask: Does anybody know if any other celebs play Disc Golf? ...or even ran into one on a course?

Not so much a celebrity, but I've heard of former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor playing at a Wisconsin resort.

"Dallas" and "I Dream of Jeanie" star Larry Hagman has played. I think he used to have a comped PDGA membership.

When I was down in Jacksonville playing at Ed Austin, David Garrard from the Jacksonville Jaguars had come out to try it out, and the local shop had given him some discs for free so he could try it out. It was pretty cool playing on the same course at the same time.

The rich and famous could bring more people to the game. The poor could scare some people away.

I have been told by the locals at Tuscawilla Park in Daytona Beach that Nascar driver Carl Edwards plays and has played at Tuscawilla when Nascar comes to Daytona.
