From Associated Press:

[Ray] Romano was in a group with actor Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin on NBC’s sitcom “The Office.” His approach shot on his final hole ran 160 yards and trickled onto the green 6 feet from the hole.

“Nice shot, Bruce!” a fan shouted.

“It’s Brian,” he said, “but thanks.”

Actor Brian Baumgartner had the shot of the day — and probably his life — when he sunk a shot from about 175 yards out on the par-5 fourth for an eagle, good for 6 points in the modified Stableford scoring system.

“That was exactly my recipe for success on this hole,” he quipped as he reached down to pull the ball out of the hole.

Baumgartner, who plays Kevin on the hit NBC series “The Office,” nearly got an ace on the par-3 seventh when his tee shot rolled within a few feet of the pin. He settled for a birdie.

However, not all of his shots were that accurate. On the third hole, Baumgartner nearly hit player partner Mike Shanahan with an errant shot off the fairway.

“I thought we were tight,” Shanahan joked after dodging the ball.

  1. How can you not love this guy, haha…Nice swing Brian! You Rock and you’re my favorite on the office

  2. My best friend’s dad was at the tourney and got to have a chat with Brian! The worst part is, he doesn’t even watch the show! He just knew we did and so it was totally natural for him to just have a conversation with Brian. Am I jealous? Yes. Extremely.

  3. I went last year when he was there and he was on the last hole of the day and he just hit the ball from the middle of the fairway towards the green but was way short and nobody clapped, then he said “Can I at least get an applause for finishing” and it was still quiet so I started cheering and he pointed at me and then said thank you. When he was done with the hole he walked right up to me thanked me again, gave me and autograph and took a picture with me, it was pretty great.
