Hey, a Tim Tebow sighting.
The Florida quarterback, who played quarterback at Nease which is a few miles down the road from the site of The Players Championship, was at Wednesday’s practice round until the rain came down.
He and former Gator Chris DiMarco were interviewed together by a Jacksonville television station. Tebow planned to follow DiMarco and another former Gator Chris Couch during their practice round before the skies opened up.
He said he plans to return to the tournament to watch on Saturday.
By the way, Couch and DiMarco are paired together for Thursday’s first round. They tee off at 8:44 a.m. on No. 1 but shouldn’t draw too big a crowd since Phil Mickelson tees off at the exact same time off No. 10.
Former Gators Camillo Villegas (12:41 p.m.), Dudley Hart (7:20 a.m.), Mark Calcavecchia (8:23 a.m.) and Brian gay (12:30 p.m.) are also in the field.
