As a gaggle of golf-mad athletes, actors and other A-listers prepare to tee it up in the American Century Championship, at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, in Lake Tahoe, Nev., inquiring minds want to know: what’s the deal with their games?

Here’s a rundown of the (reported) handicap for every player in the field for the modified Stableford competition, which is Friday to Sunday.

American Century Championship celebrity handicaps

Josh Allen — 10
Marcus Allen — 10
Anthony Anderson — 15
Bret Baier — 2.8
Charles Barkley — 10

A golf-world laughingstock no more, Barkley has regained enough form to get by in a hit-and-giggle. But the best part of his game is that he doesn’t take it seriously. The bookies don’t either. The odds for Sir Charles to win are 7,500-1.

Brian Baumgartner — 9
Jerome Bettis — 8
Jay Bilas — 5
Tim Brown — 8
Joe Buck — 3
David Carr — 4
Vince Carter — 9
Alex Caruso — 12
Dell Curry — 3
Seth Curry — 7
Steph Curry — 0

Fresh off his fourth NBA title, the most famous Curry in the field is looking to seal the deal in a tournament where he has finished 7th, 4th and 9th in his last three tries.

Vinny Del Negro — 1
Jay DeMarcus — 13
Dylan Dreyer — 19
Mardy Fish — 10
Larry Fitzgerald — 5.9
Dwight Freeney — 8
Tom Glavine — 2
Robert Gould — 4.9
Robert Griffin III — 10
AJ Hawk — 15
Andre Iguodala — 5.1
Nick Jonas — 5.8

The boy band star is putting on his big boy pants to compete in his American Century debut. If his handicap is honest, he’s a better player than those AT&T spots with Jordan Spieth make him out to be.
