I was listening to "Back in Time" this morning, the Back to the Future anthem made moderately famous by Huey Lewis, The News, and nostalgic 80s radio stations. And it made me wonder: who's a better golfer, Huey or Dweezil Zappa? Could Engelbert Humperdinck take them both?

Thanks to the upcoming issue of Golf Digest, I can wonder no more. They've ranked the "Top 100 in Music -- By Their Golf Handicaps."

Huey is tied for 18th with a 6.2 handicap; Dweezil is right behind him at 20th and a handicap of 6.3. Engelbert lands at #23 on this chart.

The most entertaining threesome ranks 62nd to 64th: Celine Dion, Bob Dylan and Snoop Dogg. Other music/golf double threats include Alice Cooper (#11), Justin Timberlake (tied for #15), Branford Marsalis (#29), American Idol Taylor Hicks (#58), Andre 3000 (#92) and Pink (#100).

The Top Ten looks like this: 1. Kenny G; 2. Vince Gill; 3. Marty Roe (of Diamond Rio); 4. Steve Azar; 5. Adrian Young (drummer for No Doubt); 6. Rudy Gatlin; 7. Larry Gatlin; 8. Steve Gatlin; 9. Josh Kelley; 10. Paul Brown
