1 of 33Steve Grayson/Getty Images
We're asking you to pick America's No. 1 celebrity foursome at Golf.com/fabfour or Facebook.com/SI.Golf. To preview the first round, we asked Golf.com editors David Dusek, Jeff Ritter, Ryan Reiterman and Mike Walker to make their picks for the golfer they'd most want to play with in each first-round matchup.
ARTISTS & ENTERTAINERS
Jimmy Fallon vs. Jimmy Kimmel
The Pick: Jimmy Kimmel
Of course, if this was EA Sports' Tiger Woods PGA Tour video game, we'd go the other way.

The Pick: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Michael Douglas hosts a celebrity golf tournament with Heather Locklear and Alice Cooper. Catherine Zeta-Jones hosted the Wales Ryder Cup. As a side note, we saw Michael Douglas at a lounge in Manhattan. He was sitting at the bar drinking a cocktail, while we were drinking beer on the other side of the room. Look, not all celebrity sightings are exciting.
3 of 33Kohjiro Kinno/SI
The Pick: Bill Murray
"Happy Gilmore" is a funny movie that happens to be about golf; "Caddyshack" is a golf movie that happens to be one of the funniest ever made. Advantage: Murray.
4 of 33Chris Condon/PGA Tour/Getty Images
The Pick: Clint Eastwood
Just so we could say, when Eastwood stood over a six-footer, "A decent amateur golfer makes a six-foot putt about 50 percent of the time. So the question is, do you feel lucky?"
5 of 33Sam Jones Pictures
The Pick: Will Ferrell
"We don't know how to put this, Mark, but Will Ferrell is kind of a big deal."
6 of 33Peggy Sirota
The Pick: Justin Timberlake
We know when we have no chance.
7 of 33Peggy Sirota
The Pick: Snoop Dogg
Yes, Snoop plays well on bent-grass.
8 of 33Juan Garces/Splash News/Newscom
The Pick: Halle Berry
Of course, if this was an acting contest, Patrick's work in "BASEketball" might have put him over the top.
9 of 33Al Tielemans/SI
ICONS OF GOLF
Phil Mickelson vs. Arnold Palmer
The Pick: Arnold Palmer
We asked Tiger to cast the tie-breaking vote.
10 of 33David Walberg/SI
The Pick: Butch Harmon
But only if Butch plays with his 2000 swing.
11 of 33Lane Stewart/SI
The Pick: Jack Nicklaus
Tiger's not getting past Jack -- in the record books or in this bracket.
12 of 33Al Tielemans/SI
The Pick: Rory McIlroy
Poulter has the most Twitter followers, but McIlroy was the one who made Time's 140 best Twitter feeds. Of course, so did Anthony Weiner.
13 of 33Hunter Martin/Getty Images
The Pick: Paula Creamer
Two of its biggest stars matched up in the first round? The LPGA just can't catch a break.
14 of 33Robert Beck/SI
The Pick: Fred Couples
Golf's Most Popular Player is going to go far in this tournament.
15 of 33Michael Clifton/USO Tour
The Pick: David Feherty
Nick would like to thank us from the heart of his bottom.
16 of 33David Walberg/SI
The Pick: Lee Trevino
Bring your own rubber snake.

Donald Trump vs. Ivanka Trump
The Pick: Ivanka Trump
We think this is going to be the greatest matchup in the entire tournament. Oh, you disagree? Well, you're a loser.
18 of 33Steven Senne/AP
The Pick: Barack Obama
However, Boehner still holds the "Beavis and Butthead" award for funniest last name in the House. (Sorry, Rep. Weiner.)
19 of 33Antoine Antonio/Bloomberg via Getty Images
The Pick: Mark Zuckerberg
We can't wait for the Twitter movie though. OK, maybe we can.
20 of 33S.Greenwood/WireImage.com
The Pick: George H. W. Bush
The fastest-played match of the tournament. Put it this way: Kevin Na isn't going to be getting any invitations to Kennebunkport.
21 of 33Dave Cheskin/AP
The Pick: Bill Clinton
We'd talk more about this match, but we don't think either guy will give us the chance.
22 of 33Robyn Twomey
The Pick: Condoleezza Rice
The Masters chairman won't top everyone's favorite pick for Augusta National's first female member.
23 of 33Jen Baptists Lacroix/WireImage/Getty Images
The Pick: Arnold Schwarzenegger
Bad matchup for Gates. He would have eaten Zuckerberg's lunch.
24 of 33Pankaj Nangia/Bloomberg via Getty Images
The Pick: Warren Buffet
The match between one of the world's richest men and a former Supreme Court justice will be closely watched by daytraders and fans of pragmatic judicial philosophy.
25 of 33Stephen Dunn/Getty Images
Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning
The Pick: Tom Brady
It could be the only time these two face each other all year.
26 of 33Dave Martin/Getty Images
The Pick: Charles Barkley
They found the one guy Chuck could beat.
27 of 33Jason DeCrow/AP
The Pick: Michael Jordan
Even in a fan-voted, media-created popularity contest, Jordan's competitiveness is palpable.
28 of 33Clay Patrick McBride/SI
The Pick: Larry Bird
This first-round matchup could go either way. Really depends on how many strippers vote.
29 of 33Chris Condon/PGA Tour/Getty Images
The Pick: Roger Clemens
Is there a third choice?
30 of 33Warwick Saint/SI
The Pick: Lindsey Vonn
Afterward, Rice will announce his intention to become a professional skier.
31 of 33Kohjiro Kinno/SI
The Pick: Tony Romo
Romo scores a rare playoff win.
32 of 33Doug Benc/Getty Images
The Pick: Drew Brees
Even his friendship with Sergio Garcia won't help Nadal against the 2010 SI Sportsman of the Year.
