Jerry Rice said last month that he was serious about trying to compete as a professional golfer, even saying after a rocky debut that it reminded him of his NFL debut.
But now Rice says he’s done trying to play as a pro.
Rice was disqualified from the Nationwide Tour event Friday because his caddie used a scope to check yardages, which Rice referred to as a rookie mistake. Even aside from that issue, Rice wasn’t playing well, shooting a 92 on Thursday — the highest score ever at the tournament. So Rice has decided not to pursue the dream of being a pro golfer.
At least he’s got this summer’s enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame to look forward to.
