    No disrespect to Rory McIlroy or the many other world-famous golfers on the course at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, but the big draw of Wednesday's pro-am in advance of the Wells Fargo Championship was a pairing of Panthers.

    Tight end Greg Olsen and linebacker Luke Kuechly formed the most Carolina-friendly grouping in the bunch, pairing with local product and PGA Tour pro Johnson Wagner. Kuechly, still recovering from a shoulder injury, caddied while Olsen reportedly managed to break 100.

    Greg Olsen and Luke Kuechly were as big a draw -- if not bigger -- than Rory McElroy on the range. #WellsFargoChamp

    Local reports indicated that teammates Ryan Kalil and Mike Remmers and head coach Ron Rivera were in the gallery to watch the duo bang their way around the course. Not bad for an off-day's work.

    Tom Brady was about 13 when Vanilla Ice hit No. 1 with "Ice Ice Baby," so it makes sense that the New England Patriots quarterback would be hanging out on stage with the rapper and reality television star.

    At an Under Armour event, Vanilla Ice took this selfie and posted it to Twitter. What do they say about a picture saying a thousand words?

    What a great day at #ArmorDay chilling with Tom Brady

    Vanilla Ice also was feeling the love from Lindsay Vonn and Jordan Spieth.
