Posted: Updated:

Celebrities are common at The Greenbrier Classic, but Wednesday's celeb's were more from the
political side.

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin along with Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear played in Wednesday's Pro-Am.

They had the opportunity to play with the 2011 Master's champion Bubba Watson.

But for Governor Tomblin, he thinks more about the limelight the classic shines on the mountain state.

"It's really a great showcase for West Virginia," said Governor Tomblin. "It''s grown over the last four years. With the concerts and the big named golfers, it's really great."

Senator Joe Manchin was also on hand Wednesday.
