A.J. Green: Good at football, golf not so much

Athens is home this week to the Stadion Classic, a Nationwide Tour event that runs Thursday to Sunday. And to help promote it, the tour brought in former Georgia football stars Matt Stafford, A.J. Green and Mohamed Massaqoui for Monday's pro-am.

Stafford has some decent experience at golf, as you can see from this video. PGA tour pro and former UGA golfer Bubba Watson is the man giving Stafford some pointers on the driving range.

And then there's Green. The new No. 18 for the Cincinnati Bengals (he announced over the weekend that would be his new jersey number) is going to be a rich man once the lockout is over and he signs a contract. So that means he'll have plenty of money to golf - and to get some lessons.

As you can see on this video, Green's swing could use some work. But at least he has a good sense of humor as tour pro Chip Beck tries to refine his swing.

Thanks to Jonathan McGinty of the Jackson Spalding PR firm, which is handling the Stadion Classic this week, for the videos.
