Phelps, an avid golfer who has participated in several Pro-Ams including the Ryder Cup, Waste Management Open, and Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest athletes. In 2008, he established the Michael Phelps Foundation to promote water safety, healthy living, and the pursuit of dreams, especially for children.
North, a two-time U.S. Open champion with over 600 career starts on tour, will be hosting the celebrity foursome event for the fifth time. Derek Jeter, an American Family brand ambassador who was a 14-time All-Star and five-time World Series Champion for the New York Yankees, will be playing in the group a fourth time.
