Golf pro tries to get Tim Tebow job with Jaguars
Tim Tebow has a golf instructor who believes in him and that might
Dewey Arnette is a golf pro who lives in Jacksonville and has taught Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington and makes $400 an hour teaching other people how to play the game.
Last week he used some of that hard-earned cash to buy an ad in the Florida-Times Union for $1,200 in which he begged the Shahid Khan, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, to sign Tim Tebow.
Here's the ad:
This is strange behavior for a man who does not seem flamboyant in his actions (he drives 200 miles to work every day) but I suppose that's what Tim Tebow does to people.
"I don't want to come off as odd," Arnette said to ESPN. "The thing is, having done these things, I know how supportive people are of Tim Tebow around here. And our standards for the team are just so low right now."
Arnette knows the effort was likely futile but he's still glad he did it.
"I expect it to completely fall on deaf ears," he said. "But I just wanted to give it a try. Yeah, this isn't one of those real injustices in the world. But I feel bad for him. He deserves a shot."
