US Open Challenge

The Black Course at Bethpage State Park in New York is considered an ominous one for golfers of all handicaps. That's what makes the second annual US Open Challenge even more intriguing this year and for the first time ever, Sportsbook.com has odds on this event.

This one of a kind event features three celebrity golfers and one ‘normal Joe' as they take on the very course that Tiger Woods and the rest of the US Open participants will walk just a few days later.

This year's field consists of Michael Jordan, Ben Roethlisberger, Justin Timberlake and Larry Giebelhausen and their challenge is clear: break 100.

Inspired by Tiger a couple years ago when he claimed the average player couldn't shoot under 100 on a US Open course, this event's fourth contestant, Larry Giebelhausen, is what this challenge is truly about.

The Phoenix police lieutenant won an online contest through Golf Digest for the rights to compete with the ‘who's-who' of the sports and entertainment field. Giebelhausen beat out over 70,000 entrants who all had to submit a six word essay. His words, "I'm a cop, I'll shoot low."

Whether you believe someone in the foursome can prove Tiger wrong or you think that Bethpage is too much for an amateur to handle, log on now to Sportsbook.com to see the current odds for the US Open Challenge.

Make note, although this event is broadcast on June 21st, the foursome will actually play their round on June 12th so get your bets in early.

Ben Roethlisberger         +140

Michael Jordan               +180

Justin Timberlake           +200
