Mark your calendars for Sept. 25-30th, for this year's Ryder's Cup because The PGA of America has selected Justin Timberlake to serve as the first-ever Team Ambassador for the United States during the 39th Ryder Cup at historic Medinah (Ill.) Country Club.
In this new Ambassador role, Timberlake will appear at the Ryder Cup Gala on Sept. 26 at the Akoo Theatre in Rosemont, Ill., as well as Ryder Cup Opening Ceremonies on Sept. 27 at Medinah Country Club.
"The Ryder Cup continues to generate incredible excitement as September approaches, and Justin Timberlake's involvement is an added bonus for one of the most highly anticipated sporting events in the world," said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski.

As someone who is passionate about golf, he's the perfect fit to be a Team Ambassador, and The PGA of America is proud to have his support for the 2012 Ryder Cup."
Said Justin, "Golf has been a lifelong passion of mine - whether I'm out playing the game, working on the course at Mirimichi or sharing my love for the sport with others. There is no greater stage for the sport than the Ryder Cup, and I'm proud to be an Ambassador for the U.S. Ryder Cup team and take part in such a time-honored event. It's going to be a special week for golf fans around the world, me the most."
