One entertaining event


LAS VEGAS – I attended Justin Timberlake's charity concert on Saturday night. He had a star-studded lineup that included Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift and the one and only Snoop Dogg, who actually missed the Friday rehearsal to watch his son play a Pop Warner football game.

Timberlake performed a duet with Snoop and Ciara. The last half of the concert was Timberlake singing his greatest hits. He really has that 'it' factor and it's going to be interesting to see how it impacts his tournament in future years.

Even though Nick Watney missed the cut, he hung around to go to the show, and I saw several players enjoying the night.

Timberlake is genuinely captivated by the game of golf. He told me he gets more nervous over a birdie putt than he ever has before going on stage. He also said, like professional golfers, he studies DVDs of his musical performances to see how he can improve for the next show.

Justin Timberlake is a breath of fresh air during a time of year when the game's top names are taking a break from competition.

Let's hope his event continues to grow.
