In addition to Saban, the star-studded guest list included NFL all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith, legendary wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, 3-time MLB MVP Alex Rodriguez, new MLB Hall of Fame inductee Adrian Beltre, and Olympic legend Michael Phelps.
Saban is sporting his trademark straw Crimson Tide hat in Phoenix for the event. He has been a noted supporter of Crimson Tide athletes on the PGA Tour, having a close relationship with Justin Thomas as well as joining the broadcast during Nick Dunlap‘s triumphant and historic victory as an amateur.
Now, Saban is making the best of his opportunities to tee it up himself along with the best golfers on the planet.
