Indianapolis Colts punter, and former West Virginia Mountaineer kicker, Pat McAfee will be making his way back to the Mountain State to participate in the Wednesday Pro-Am at the 2016 Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, WV.

The 2009 seventh round draft pick and NFL Pro-Bowler is sure to provide a couple laughs while on The Old White TPC course. McAfee is a regular on the Bob & Tom Show and has recently found success with his own stand-up comedy tour.

"He definitely knows how to entertain. I know he’ll have a lot of fun, and the fans are going to have a lot of fun with him. He has a connection to West Virginia and a genuine love for the state and its people. We’re glad he’s going to be here with us." - Jim Justice, Owner of The Greenbrier

Joining McAfee will be Arizona Cardinals wide receiver and University of Phoenix graduate Larry Fitzgerald, and NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal will make his second appearance at The Greenbrier Classic. O'Neal made his debut in The Greenbrier Classic last summer, and his whiff on his first attempt off the No. 1 tee quickly went viral around social media and found a spot on ESPN's SportsCenter.

The 2016 edition of The Greenbrier Classic will be held July 4th-10th on The Old White TPC, with the Pro-Am being played on Wednesday, July 6th. Tickets to The Greenbrier Classic are free to the public this year and can be reserved on the tournament's website.
