Andrew Giuliani’s Legal Mulligan

Par for the course.


Andrew Giuliani’s lawsuit against Duke University says his golf coach gave insufficient reason for kicking him off the team for bratty behavior. One person who disagrees is ex-teammate Brian Kim, whom the former mayor’s estranged son hit with an apple. Giuliani claims in court papers that he merely “tossed” the apple, “glancing it” off the side of Kim’s face. “Apples don’t ‘glance’ off a face,” says Kim. “You think he tossed it lightly? Get real.” More improbable is Giuliani’s dream of making the PGA Tour, the reason he insists he needs lifetime access to Duke’s golf facilities so he can train: Last year, he had the twelfth-worst score of the team’s fourteen members, and he didn’t shoot a single round under par. “Having never seen him play, I can’t say for certain, but that would be akin to a walk-on player on the Duke basketball team making it to the NBA,” says ESPN golf anchor Scott Van Pelt.
