New owner of the Los Angeles Clipper Steve Ballmer and NBA All-Star point guard Chris Paul will join World Golf Hall of Famer Fred Couples today in the morning session of the Boeing Classic Korean Air Pro-Am.

This will mark the third time in the last 17 days that Couples and Ballmer, the former Microsoft CEO, will be paired together in a public golf setting. The twosome played together at the Snoqualmie Showdown August 4 and competed in a closest-to-the-pin competition against members of the Seattle Seahawks yesterday.

Ballmer officially became the owner of the Clippers August 12 and introduced himself to 4,500 fans at the Staples Center Monday.

Paul is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and has led the Clippers to the playoffs in each of his three seasons in Los Angeles.

This is the fifth consecutive year that Couples has entered his hometown Champions Tour event, finishing third in both 2010 and 2013.
