Quick Bit: The list of celebrities who will play the LIV Golf Bedminster pro-am is growing. Check out the full rosters here as names are announced.
The list of celebrities who will play in Thursday’s LIV Golf Bedminster pro-am is growing — not unlike the number of golfers moving from the PGA Tour to the Saudi-backed golf tour.
Chief among those is former President Donald Trump, for whom Trump National Golf Club, the course where the pro-am and tournament will take place, is named.
Also playing is Charles Barkley, the Basketball Hall of Famer and TNT analyst who has been tied to the LIV series in recent weeks as a potential TV host.
Other celebrities will be making their first appearance on the tour, albeit tangentially. They include two former NFL stars and an Olympic gold medal-winning athlete.
