Keegan Bradley tunes up for competition with high-stakes practice rounds with Michael Jordan. 

Wednesday at the Greenbrier Classic pro-am, he’ll play alongside another baller: Shaquille O’Neal.

The 7-foot, 1-inch center will tee off at 12:10 p.m. ET in the pro-am with Greenbrier owner Jim Justice, Justice's son Jay and Bradley, according to the local Bluefield Daily Telegraph. Lee Trevino, the golf pro emeritus at Greenbrier, will serve as the group’s caddie. 

“He’s a great friend, and his heart is as big as his body,” Justice said of O’Neal, who also attended the Greenbrier event in 2010. “He genuinely cares about people and loves to give back. We’re going to have a ball.” 

The newspaper reported that Justice was still waiting to hear whether Charles Barkley and NBA MVP Stephen Curry will be in the pro-am field. Other commitments include New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, former NBA coach Mike D’Antoni and Virginia Tech basketball coach Buzz Williams.
