Former Arizona Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald and Patrick Peterson are among the group of celebrities playing in the Annexus Pro-Am at the 2022 WM Phoenix Open.

Peterson, along with former MLB pitcher CC Sabathia, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen and Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff, were the latest additions to the Pro-Am that will be held next Wednesday at TPC Scottsdale.

After playing 10 seasons with the Cardinals, Peterson tested free agency this past offseason, eventually signing with the Vikings. In 2021, the cornerback recorded 45 tackles and an interception over 13 games and has become a regular at the WM Phoenix Open.

Cardinals fans will remember when Peterson used the setting of No. 16 back in 2019 to apologize for his trade request in the middle of the season.

As a member of the Cardinals, Peterson was named an All-Pro three times (2011, 2013, 2015) and made eight consecutive Pro Bowls from 2011-18.

Both Thielen and Goff will be making their first appearances at the WM Phoenix Open, while Fitzgerald is a usual participant.

A look at the current list of celebrities playing in the 2022 Annexus Pro-Am:

– Former Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald
– Vikings CB Patrick Peterson
– Lions QB Jared Goff
– Former MLB pitcher CC Sabathia
– Vikings WR Adam Thielen
– NFL Hall-of-Fame RB Emmitt Smith
– Comedian Rob Riggle
– Golf Channel correspondent Alexandra O’Laughlin
– Former Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps
– Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
– Actor Josh Duhamel
– Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler
– Former NFL RB Reggie Bush

Tee times ranging from 8:30-10:30 a.m. for the Pro-Am and the full list of celebrities and PGA pros are expected to be announced Tuesday.

The 2022 edition of the tournament tees off Feb. 7-13 at TPC Scottsdale and is expected to see more fans enter the gates after limiting attendance to 5,000 per day due to COVID-19 concerns last year.
