SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Nevada -  Packers linebacker AJ Hawk has been an annual participant in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament. However, he experienced a first on Thursday. A fan asked Hawk to tackle him. After some begging from the man's friends, Hawk obliged.

"I wasn't sure if I should do it or not, but his buddies were the ones egging me on saying, 'Kill him. Do it. Take him down.' I hit him pretty solid, right in the ribs with my shoulder. It felt good. I thought for a second that the guy might turn when I was coming, he might turn on me and try to hit me. So, I said I kind of have to give it my all. I didn't want to go to the ground; I really thought I was going to rip my pants as well. But I didn't, so that was a victory."

Hawk and Aaron Rodgers are slated to participate in the golf tournament beginning on Friday.
