CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is scheduled to tee up at The Greenbrier Classic’s pro-am again next month.

Media outlets report the 7-foot-1 former basketball standout will compete in the Wednesday pro-am on July 6, before the PGA Tour tournament begins.

Last year, O’Neal drew laughs when he whiffed on the first tee of the event, taking a divot and sending his golf ball nowhere.

The less-than-capable golfer, at times, also decided to throw the ball overhand like a basketball free throw.

Joining O’Neal will be Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee. McAfee played for West Virginia University.
