Has golf brought you closer to your dad, or anyone else? If you care to share those thoughts, you can submit them to a Father's Day-themed Facebook promotion being backed by Justin Timberlake and Callaway. The grand prize winner will get to meet Timberlake and play his course at the Mirimichi resort, outside Memphis. Twenty-five other entrants will receive Diablo Octane drivers.

So who would be in your dream foursome, Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel? Peyton Manning or Tom Brady? Bill Clinton or Rush Limbaugh? Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus?

You will have a chance to choose in an online poll that will determine a Fab Foursome. Golf magazine and SI.com are holding the contest, which is set up as a series of matches. Voters keep choosing a winner in each match until there are four left. Polling starts tomorrow at www.Golf.com and www.Facebook.com/ SI.Golf. One voter will be picked to bring a group to play Pebble Beach with actor Will Ferrell.

LIer in blind tourney

Ted Fass of Rockville Centre will compete Sunday for the Corcoran Cup, which is considered the Masters of Blind Golf. Fass, 59, lost his vision to a tumor when he was 11 but kept competing in sports. He took up golf about 10 years ago and is a member at Middle Bay Country Club. Working with coach/caddie Dave Santucci, he shot 54 for nine holes recently. "I practice every day," Fass said. "I want to win this thing."
