Jerry Rice's new game

September 29, 2009

Future NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice has turned his attention to a career in professional golf, both as an administrator and as a player.

Rice, an inveterate golfer, will serve as the host of the Nationwide Tour's Stonebrae Classic at TPC San Francisco next April, the tournament is announcing today. Moreover, Rice has accepted a sponsor exemption to play in the tournament, apparently as a professional.

Tournament proceeds will go to the Jerry Rice "127" Foundation, which supports a variety of children's charities.
