The Pebble Beach Pro-Am is one of the most fun tournaments on the PGA Tour circuit and there are dozens of big-time celebrities playing this year. 

Let's look at the five most fun groups teeing it up on Thursday and Friday in Pebble Beach.

1. Dustin Johnson and Wayne Gretzky, John Daly and Kid Rock -- This cannot be topped. I don't even know what to say, it might be the best foursome in Pebble Beach Pro-Am history.

2. Troy Matteson and Herm Edwards, JJ Henry and Chris Berman -- I can't wait for Berman to step to the first tee and say "Jay Jay Hennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnry" like he's a defensive end.

3. Ricky Barnes and Tom Brady, James Driscoll and Bill Belichick -- I wonder if this is the year Belichick finally decides to play in a cutoff hoodie?

4. John Mallinger and Andy Roddick, Chris Kirk and James Blake -- All of the country club jokes. Seriously though, will the wives be there?

5. Scott Langley and Peyton Manning, Gret Owen and Harris Barton -- Barton is a fund manager and used to play for the 49ers. This Manning guy seems to be an actor who's in a lot of commercials. Regardless, should be fun.

Other pairings: Jordan Spieth and Jake Owen, Jerry Kelly and Aaron Rodgers, DA Points and Condoleezza Rice, Kevin Stadler and Jeb Bush, Graeme McDowell and Kenny McDowell (his dad).
