Next month, in one last fling before training camp, Patrick Peterson and Carson Palmer are going golfing. But it’s a little more than a foursome on a weekend, even though both guys do love their golf. Each have been invited — and have accepted — to play in the annual American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. It’s the biggest celebrity tourney of the year. Ken Whisenhunt used to participate annually when he was coaching the Cards. Palmer took part last year, while Peterson has been invited for the first time.
The sports book in Tahoe (not that anyone should ever, ever bet on such things) puts the odds on Peterson winning at 30-1, with Palmer at 50-1. Seeing that a former pro in Annika Sorenstam is in the field, I’d guess the Cards aren’t coming away with a victory.
Former Cardinal Emmitt Smith is also playing. The tournament runs from July 18-20.
Peterson has turned into a pretty decent golfer in his short time playing. He, along with Bruce Arians, played in the pro-am at the most recent Waste Management Open.
