By now, we've all seen Shaq struggle to hit a golf ball at the Pro-Am portion of the Greenbrier Classic. On Thursday, videos surfaced that helped redeem him.
The first shows Shaq celebrating after demonstrating what it looks like when a very, very large man makes contact with a golf ball. Naturally, that celebration pays homage to one of the best in the history of golf, Chi Chi Rodriguez's sword dance.
If Shaq is taking requests for his next celebratory dance, I would like to submit Miguel Angel Jimenez's post-ace moonwalk.
Things got even better for The Diesel when the PGA Tour posted a video of him making a 'free throw.'
A notoriously bad free-throw shooter -- he retired with a 52.7 career shooting percent from the charity stripe -- Shaq was often intentionally fouled by opposing teams instead of giving him easy baskets. He also lampooned his struggles in the film 'Scary Movie 4.'
Maybe if he had practiced with a golf ball, he could have been an even better basketball player. Now there's a scary thought.
