3.16: Jerry Rice to Make Professional Golf Debut
When the nationwide tour makes its annual stop in Hayward next month the event is sure to generate more attention than usual. After all it's not every day that an NFL superstar makes his professional golf debut. Which is exactly what Jerry Rice will be doing as Dave -- reports rice is set on proving he has a future in the game. My pleasure to welcome Hall of Fame class of 2010 and a teacher writes it was an introduction exactly like thousands with which Jerry Rice has been associated. Yet oh so different nervous I'm nervous. As can be but I I mean. This is why I play. Nervous for number of reasons. Not only is the greatest of all time rookie once again and and a sport where every man is an island. But nervous mostly because of his own high expectations. I'm expecting to play well come home be honest with you -- you know I have always put myself out there. You know full faith and now I have Rose to the occasion so you know I wanna go out I wanna have a good round today. I want these guys know that I'm serious about what I'm doing -- and I really respect. You know how hard they've worked in the end you know into be on the PGA. In fact Jerry's passion for golf is so deep peace -- football on the back burner remember those overture Super Bowl week about wanting to be an assistant coach for the niners. We can forget about those turn out. If Ramon. Via actor. If Ramon do commentary. I have to devote myself. And you know with this passion that I opening goal right now I don't think I'm able to do that. Thus the question becomes how realistic shot to his Jerry Rice have of making a second career for himself engulf. I'm pretty -- every. Morning you can make three footer. Now let's make it downhill. Trailer said the greens -- about twelve. And that's put on -- knows mine. And then. To elevate your game you gotta play with the best. And you know that's what I'm trying to do end and but this going to challenge is going to be a big challenge and and if I'm able to just get some knowledge out of this experience you know this -- better my game. And that's the bottom line for rice from TPC stone -- Dave prints Comcast sports net.
