EAGLE TODD HERREMANS loves golf so much that he traveled to Los Angeles for a tournament.

Did we mention it was the Playboy Golf Finals, which kicked off with an opening reception at the Playboy Mansion? Herremans represented the Eagles and competed against Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots, Michael Richardson of the Seahawks, comedian Josh Wolf and some cast members from Bravo's "Shahs of Sunset." Herremans, who is reportedly dating April 2010 Playmate Amy Leigh Andrews, hung out with Miss May 2007 Shannon James, of Bucks County, who recently split from Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence, and Miss August 2004 Pilar Lastra at the Playboy Golf Finals Pajama and Lingerie Party at the Playboy Mansion.

The golf tourney featured many NFL and NBA players, as well as actor Patrick Warburton, (Puddy on "Seinfeld"), who is now on "The Rules of Engagement," and rapper Soulja Boy.

OUT AND ABOUT

Bruce Springsteen and a man believed to be his son, Evan, stopped for Yuenglings at the Taggart House (9900 Frankford) Thursday afternoon before for the second of two Wells Fargo Center shows. We're told that while Springsteen was there, the jukebox played "Prove It All Night," which a patron selected before he came in.

Third Eye Blind singer Stephan Jenkins stopped at the Mexican Post (16th & Cherry) for dinner Friday before the group performed a free concert outside the new Xfinity Live! complex where the Spectrum used to be. Jenkins sat at the bar and once word spread about his presence (though we're surprised anyone really got that excited), he asked to have his meal packed up to go.
