ING Par 3 Shootout Phil Mickelson, defending champ Fred Couples, Andy North and Gary McCord leave their drivers at home when they play the Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Mich. Each hole is worth $20,000 (an ace is worth $1 million), and chatty TV commentator McCord has a plan that he hopes will allow him to win a few skins: "The only chance I have is to get [Couples and Mickelson] flustered with my incessant banter." ESPN2 10 p.m.

TUESDAY 6/28

NBA Draft You'll turn it on to see whom the Bucks take No. 1. You'll keep it on to see which soon-to-be millionaire shows up in the most memorable suit.

The team with the best chance to help itself tonight is the Bobcats, who pick fifth and 13th. In their short history they have a record of drafting well; last year they took Rookie of the Year Emeka Okafor. ESPN 7:30 p.m.
