Mike Bailey: NY son Giuliani takes his act to the Golf Channel's 'Big Break' at Disney

Apparently, you can take the kid out of the Big Apple, but you can't keep the kid from throwing the apple. How much that has to do with Andrew Giuliani competing on the Golf Channel's "Big Break" is up for debate, but the reality golf skills show has always found a few characters to spice things up.

It probably doesn't hurt that Giuliani, 23, is also the son former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani either.

The younger Giuliani, who recently turned pro after graduating from Duke University, is taking on other aspiring pros at courses and locations around Disney World in Orlando, Fla., for a chance to come back in November to compete in the PGA Tour's Children's Miracle Network Classic. The competition will air on the Golf Channel in October.

While at Duke, the younger Giuliani competed on the school's golf team - until his junior year when he got kicked off the team for outbursts, which allegedly including throwing an apple at a teammate. Then he sued the school because he said he was promised lifetime access to Duke's golf facilities, which were no longer available to him. He was apparently unsuccessful in his suit when a federal judge recommended it be thrown out.

Besides Giuliani, another player competing also has ties to a famous parent. Andreas Huber is the son of longtime soap star Susan Lucci.
