On June 18, the U.S. Open will crown a new champion at Erin Hills Golf Course just northwest of Milwaukee. On Wednesday, pro's of a different sport were taking a swing at the course. 

Green Bay Packer players Jordy Nelson, Mason Crosby, Bryan Bulaga and Don Barclay were all invited to battle the tour-manicured links and check out the famous U.S. Open trophy.

A professional in football, wide receiver Jordy Nelson happily admits he's an amateur of golf. 

"We will be playing some sort of game, and unfortunately I will probably be paying out," Nelson said. "You shouldn't bet when you're not very good, but it makes it more interesting."
