Pros Vs. Celebs: Who's Better?

As the PGA Tour stops in Illinois this week for the John Deere Classic, another golf tournament, the American Century Championship, will be played in Nevada. The latter, believe it or not, probably has the better field.

What do you think?

The American Century Championship

Check out Golf Digest's Athlete-Golfer rankings to see how well these All-Stars play golf. You may be surprised at how many former and current football players can really hit the ball.

ESPN2 will cover the first round of the The American Century Championship on Friday from 7-9 p.m. ET, while NBC will telecast the weekend rounds: 4-6 p.m. ET on Saturday and 3-6 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The Golf Channel will broadcast the first two rounds of the John Deere from 3-6 p.m. ET, and CBS will televise the third and fourth rounds on Saturday and Sunday during that same time slot.

Expect a good number of golf fans to flip back and forth during commercials.
