Green, the country star who has settled in Fort Worth, is one of the few bona fide celebs playing in the pro-am -- so it's only fitting he was late to the first tee.
"Pat Green, please report to the first tee," the Hole 1 announcer droned over the loudspeaker as Nelson champ Scott Verplank waited to hit.
About five minutes later, in true rock star fashion, Green emerged with his putter in hand, wearing a yellow visor, blue shirt, white pants and a sheepish grin. He made his apologies and promptly sent a low riding rocket down the first fairway, in position to go for the green in two. Dude is a player.
When the crowd didn't react, he said: "Y'all calm down!"
Should be a fun round.
