CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

For the sixth time celebrities and pros invaded Cedar Rapids for the Zach Johnson foundation Classic. For the tournament host, playing back home has always been something special.

“This is where it started,” said Johnson, “I've always said if I could have one last round, this is where I'd want it to be.”

PGA pros, like the man that's number two in the world, Jordan Spieth, along with TV and other sports stars, gathered together to raise money for Johnson's Kids on Course charity. Kids on Course's purpose is to help youngsters achieve their goals.

“To be able to come out and support the Zach Johnson Foundation is fantastic,” said Alfonso Ribeiro, former star of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, “They're doing such great things here in Cedar Rapids and really educating these kids.”

“I know what it means what he's doing,” added tour pro John Daly, “It's great what he's doing and to get all these great players to come in and do this. It's pretty cool.

While the celebrities and pros at Elmcrest Country Club would tell you they came to help a good cause, there's no doubt they're thinking about winning as well.”

“Number one goal is to beat Alfonso Ribiero,” stated Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, “I'm trying to get him back for beating Sadie on Dancing With the Stars, so as long as I can take him down, I feel like I've got a shot at the day.”

It wasn't all about golf, however, as Daly mentioned some great perks for coming to Iowa.

“I'm a big milk drinker, and this state has the best milk, the best chocolate milk ever. “
