Shaquille O’Neal Whiffs Hard on First Tee at Greenbrier Pro-Am

July 1, 2015

Shaquille O’Neal was a 4-time NBA Champion in basketball, but, as it became clear Wednesday, he has yet to play like a champion on the golf course.

O’Neal was playing in a pro-am at this week’s Greenbrier Classic and had quite the audience on the first tee for his tee shot (attempts). With playing partner Keegan Bradley watching, Diesel swung and missed not just once, but twice. The video was captured by ESPN reporter Jason Sobel.

Eventually, he connects and actually sends the ball forward. How far, exactly, remains unclear. Nonetheless, he told Sobel he feels his game is better than fellow basketball legend Charles Barkley.
