WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WVa. (WSLS 10 SPORTS) - The Pro-Am at the Greenbrier Wednesday was packed full of notable people, from the golf world to reality TV, there was plenty of excitement on the Old White Course.

Tiger Woods had an early tee time and wrapped up his round on the 18th hole before noon.

"First time back since the last time I missed the cut here, so looking for a little better playing and the golf course is in great shape.  The same as last time we played, so I expect the games to be very low," Woods said.

White Sulphur Springs got a taste of Hollywood, or rather, Louisiana. Jase Robertson from Duck Dynasty was also playing but during his visit he wasn't duck hunting but instead looking for birdies.

Shaquille O'Neal, an NBA legend, chatted it up with the NBA logo, Jerry West before hitting the links with Greenbrier Resort  owner Jim Justice and new golf pro emeritus Lee Trevino.

"My favorite guy here is Lee Trevino. I like talking to legends, I was telling somebody the other day, Mr. West made me a great player not by working me out, but by telling stories," O'Neal explained.

As Shaq showed us, basketball skills don't necessarily translate well on the golf course.  Virginia Tech Men's Basketball coach Buzz Williams would agree.

"So far, great, because they can't find my clubs so right now I'm shooting Eagle." said Williams.

While the Pro-Am stars wrapped up play after their rounds. The golf stars will align Thursday as the first day of the Greenbrier Classic tournament begins.
