Ben Roethlisberger played Bethpage Black with a foursome featuring two other celebrities and a contest winner. Ben managed a respectable score of 81 to win among his group which included Michael Jordan who shot an 86, Justin Timberlake (88) and regular guy Larry Giebelhausen (101).
While Roethlisberger managed birdies on holes 10 and 15 one figures the Super Bowl winning QB knows where his meal ticket lies. And, according to the Post Gazette, after disproving Tiger Woods’ prediction of a 100+ round, he pocketed some walking around money. “I got to collect from Tiger,” Roethlisberger said. “And I got to collect from Mike for the birdies.”
Three Draftees Sign
The Steelers reached contract agreements with one of their third rounders and both fifth rounders over the weekend. Third round cornerback Keenan Lewis of Oregan State inked his deal, joined by fellow pass defender Joe Burnett of Central Florida. Fifth round UNLV running back Frank “The Tank” Summers who punched his ticket to training camp, signed on the dotted line Friday.
Most of the 2009 draft picks remain unsigned but don’t worry fellow Steelers fans, the front office will take care of business.
