Why, cross of an item on your bucket list at Churchill Downs of course.

That's exactly what some of the PGA Tour's bigger names did on Saturday. 

Rickie Fowler certainly came dressed for the occasion, captured on the red carpet prior to the running of the 143rd Kentucky Derby.

For Justin Rose, it was a moment he had long waited for.

Lexington native Justin Thomas made his walk down the red carpet, only to strike a pose with Fowler.


The defending champion of the PGA Championship joins in the fun.

Even some of our favorite fictional golfers got misty-eyed heading into the big day.


While there is certainly intense action at Churchill Downs, don't forget to see who's hot coming down the stretch in Wilmington, NC at the Wells Fargo Championship.
