Many people think that Rice is the NFL’s greatest-ever wide receiver. But football wasn’t even his greatest sporting love despite his brilliance. He adored golf and made a special effort to wake up early for a round before practice. Then, when he retired from football, he poured his focus into the sport.
Rice even tried to compete at the top level but it didn’t go well for him. There are levels to every sport and unfortunately, he fell far short of the requirements. In one competition, he finished second-last out of over 150 participants. It’s a shame but his devotion didn’t compensate for his lack of ability (via Golf.com).
