Several Packers players are hitting the links this week at the 2012 American Century Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, Nev. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Donald Driver, LB A.J. Hawk and former WR Sterling Sharpe are participating in the celebrity tournament. More than 80 of the biggest sports and entertainment stars are playing in the made-for-TV event. It’s not the first appearance by Packers players in the annual week of events. Hawk took home long drive competition honors in 2009 and 2011 with his blasts of 322 and 337 yards, respectively.

2012 marks Rodgers‘ eighth appearance in the event. His best finish was in 2006, when he tied for 32nd. Last year he tied for 39th.
