The inaugural American Family Insurance Championship at University Ridge Golf Course will pack some star power. Former Packers Brett Favre and Mark Tauscher have agreed to play in the celebrity 9-hole scramble on Saturday, June 25.

Favre and Tauscher will team up with tournament host Steve Stricker and two-time U.S. Open champion Andy North. The foursome will tee off after the final tournament group of the day at approximately 2 p.m. Tauscher helped organize the grouping.

"I am excited to be a part of this unique event and thrilled to bring my high handicap to the group with Brett, Steve and Andy," the former Packers tackle said in a statement.

The American Family Insurance Championship will feature 81 players in the field competing for a $2 million purse. The tournament runs June 24-26. There will be Pro-Am events on June 22-23. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation. Tickets are still available at www.AmFamChampionship.com.
