TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Solheim Cup organizers and BMW announced a celebrity golf match with players and celebs facing off for the inaugural crown on Tuesday. The match will have two teams teeing off No. 10 in a scramble format.

One of the teams will be captained by country artist Darius Rucker. Other participants include Radio Hall of Fame host and former defensive lineman, Mike Golic, 31-time LPGA Tour winner, Juli Inkster, and six-time U.S. Team member Morgan Pressel.
