With poker players making millions from the increase of fish and endorsements each year theyhigh stakes golf can easily afford to make crazy expensive prop bets. ESPN came up with an idea to host a High Stakes Golf Tournament where each team of three poker players had to put up $3 million to compete in the tournaments.

The tournament took place a few months ago but will finally be aired tonight on ESPN. The tournament will host 2 events, the first one being a 3 person scramble competing for $9 million. The teams include of Phil Hellmuth, Billy Walters and Russ Hamilton. The next team is the old timers, Dewey Tomko, Vince Van Patten and Doyle Brunson. The last team that will be competing is Canada poker player Daniel Negreanu, Josh Arieh and Erick Lindgren.

The second event will be the $250,000 buy-in best ball tournament with 2 players per team. Every player noted above took place allong with Phil Ivey and David Oppenheim and others.

The show will air at 12 PM eastern on ESPN.
