Jason Taylor and two of the Jonas Brothers are about to tee off.
Sounds like the setup to a bad joke, but that's actually what happened on Monday at the ninth annual Jason Taylor Celebrity Golf Classic. The former Miami Dolphins defensive end called out all the stars to the Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale to help raise money for his foundation and two other charities.
Kevin Jonas (at right) and Nick Jonas were just two of the celebs who took part in the festivities. Actor Omari Hardwick (below) and Chris Kirkpatrick of *NSYNC were also there, on top of a slew of current and former athletes.
Ronnie Brown, Andre Dawson, Rob Gronkowski, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Brandon Marshall, O.J. McDuffie, Alonzo Mourning, Jonathan Ogden, Ray Rice and Fred Taylor turned up to support the causes. Even a few of Taylor's teammates from his 2010 season with the Jets showed up, including linebackers Calvin Pace, Bart Scott and Bryan Thomas.
"To get guys like Zo and some of my former teammates from the Dolphins and then some former Jets and Nick and Kevin Jonas it's been fantastic," Taylor said. "The support's great and we've got a bunch of Hall-of-Famers. It's a real honor to have these guys come out and help us raise some money."
Although this year's tournament marks the beginning of Taylor's retirement and a slower pace of life than he's used to, some of his guests cleared their busy schedules just long enough to take part. Nick Jonas, who's starring on Broadway currently, flew down from New York and back on the same day.
"Had such a great time today playing golf for a good cause!" he tweeted on the way home.
His brother, Kevin, stayed and enjoyed the evening festivities though, which included partying with the best tight end in the NFL.
Kevin tweeted at Rob Gronkowski, "nice hanging bro!"
The number of participants in the Celebrity Golf Classic has grown every year. And now that Taylor has hung up his jersey he'll have plenty of time to recruit for 2013. But for now he's just thankful that so many people came together to make the event a success.
"The golf tournament’s been great," Taylor said. "The support has been great."
Now if he could just get Joe Jonas to show up next year.
