NFL Player Qualifies for Buycom Event

RSS

One of the NFL's greatest kickers might be looking to start a second career. 17-year NFL veteran Al Del Greco Monday qualified for a spot in the Buy.com Tour's season-opening Florida Classic.
 
Del Greco played his first nine holes of Monday's qualifier at 2-over-par but rallied with four birdies coming in to shoot 2-under par.
 
Del Greco, who was recently released from the NFL's Tennessee Titans, has made a name for himself playing on the celebrity circuit. He has won the amateur portion of the Senior Tour's NFL Cadillac Classic five times. This, however, will be his first time competing on the same level as the professionals.
 
The first round of the Buy.com Florida Classic gets underway on Thursday at the Gainesville Country Club in Gainesville, Fl. Del Greco will tee-off on the 10th hole alongside Warren Schutte and Paul Dickinson at 9:09AM ET.
