Never has there been so much star power in one group at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Stateline, Nev.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo might be the better golfer, but he's paired with Michael Jordan (and Boston Celtics star Ray Allen) for Friday's first round at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

So whose jersey will be represented the most in the huge gallery that's sure to follow -- Romo's No. 9 or Jordan's No. 23? We're guessing Jordan.

"Michael Jordan has traditionally drawn the largest galleries through the years, but Tony Romo has attracted huge crowds the past three years," tournament director Mike Milthorpe told the Reno Gazette Journal.

Romo was the event's runner-up last year, and he finished third in 2008.

"It's going to be fun," Romo told the RGJ. "Hopefully, we can get Mike in contention. ... I'm pretty confident on the course. As long as I stay away from the basketball court, I'll be all right."

The starpower in the group in front of them isn't too shabby, either. Former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is paired with former Broncos QB John Elway and current Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

The other DFW celebrities participating are Jason Kidd, Brett Hull, Mike Modano and Hank Haney.
