The participants will start out with a nine-hole, best-ball event on the Raptor Course at Grayhawk Golf Club, followed by a cooking contest with $100,000 on the line for the competitors' respective charities.
Shane Battier, Digger Phelps, Paul Westphal and Jim Harrick are the participants on the basketball side. Renowned chefs Jose Garces, Masaharu Morimoto, Beau MacMillan and Todd English are the culinary experts. NBA.TV reporter and former Golf Channel "Big Break" host, Melanie Collins, will emcee the competition.
The judges of the cookout/shootout event will be Grayhawk’s Del Cochran, joined by Fairmont’s Jack Miller, LPGA Hall of Famer Jan Stephenson, David “Big Swole” Rose and the human calculator, Scott Flansburg who will add em’ up.
