Jesse Williams may be a heartthrob in the ER and real life too, but I bet you never thought of him as one on the golf course.  Jesse says, “I’m new to golf, but one of the great things about it is that you get to spend quality time with individuals.  This weekend I’m trying to maintain my title as the worst golf player on the course.” 

Williams also said that “[the tournament] is a really positive atmosphere, and you get to mess around and talk shop with Hall of Fame athletes. I’m from Chicago, so, Michael Jordan, all of these guys, Ahmad Rashad, these are OG’s…this is great.”

Back9Network’s Executive Producer and host, Ahmad Rashad, was also on site shooting his new show “AHMAD RASHAD” which is currently in production.

The four-day tournament and celebration, which boasts incredible parties, A-list entertainment and competitive golf, is recognized as one of the best events of its kind, having attracted sports legends including Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and Michael Phelps as well as entertainment personalities such as Chevy Chase, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Mark Wahlberg in years past.  The 2014 event beneficiaries include Make-A-Wish, The James R. Jordan Foundation, Cats Care, Keep Memory Alive, and Opportunity Village.

Grey’s Anatomy was once the highest rated drama in the key 18-49 demographic. It is the recipient of the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama and has taken home numerous nominations and wins at the Emmys and Screen Actors Guild Awards.  ABC has renewed the series for an 11th series which will air in the Fall of 2014.
