VIDEO: Alfonso Ribeiro, Justin Timberlake do Carlton dance at golf tournament


Alfonso Ribeiro, best known for playing Carlton on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," dealt with his golf frustration in the best way possible on Friday at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

After hitting a lousy tee shot to the par-3 17th at Edgewood Golf Course, Ribeiro tossed his golf club to the ground and, at the urging of the crowd, broke into the Carlton Dance with playing partner Justin Timberlake.

The dancing duo drove the crowd crazy.

Ribeiro finished the day with 9 points under the modified Stableford scoring format for the 54-hole event. Timberlake wound up with 15 points, 10 behind co-leaders Jack Wagner and Mark Mulder.
