Ponte Vedra Beach:

Singer and actor Justin Timberlake will host the US PGA Tour stop in Las Vegas, which will be renamed the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Timberlake becomes the 14th celebrity to host an event, joining notables Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Glen Campbell. The five-year agreement begins next October.

"We will make sure to make this event unique and memorable, and we will raise money for charity while participating in the greatest game ever played," Timberlake said.

"Raising money to better children's lives while playing golf? I can't think of a better way to pass the time."

The Las Vegas tournament is part of the Fall Series in October, played after the FedEx Cup and George McNeill is the defending champion.
