In case you’re one of those fans who can’t get enough Tom Brady from watching him attempt to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a championship, TNT is here to quench your thirst by getting you an up-close look at the New England Patriots legend on the golf course.
Brady and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers teamed up for a 2-on-2 match against Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. With 153 touchdown passes from last year represented in this matchup, the stars were indeed out in Las Vegas.
While Brady has been a fairly regular presence in these exhibitions, he hasn’t seen as much success on the links as he has on the gridiron. While that all changed on Wednesday after he and Rodgers combined for the victory, that win came despite some serious shanks from the GOAT.
Brady sliced a fairly routine fairway shot to the right in a move that made the seven-time champion look like us regular amateurs. Apparently, Brady was going off a tip given to him by the production crew. After he embarrassed himself, Brady trashed the crew for their bad advice.
Tom Brady trash-talked the TNT crew during ‘The Match’
This is the third match in which Brady has participated. Surprisingly, he was 0-2 coming into this exhibition, as he and Phil Mickelson lost to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning in the first iteration. In his second link-up with Mickelson, Brady lost to Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau.
Despite his early struggles, Brady and Rodgers were able to pull off the victory over the Mahomes-Allen coalition. Sure, it was only a one-up win that was helped along by Rodgers coming through on the final hole with a clutch put, but it was a win nonetheless. Add it to the list!
Always one to say what’s on his mind when the situation calls for it, Brady got the trash talk started early. After Allen marked his balls with that infamous picture of Brady shirtless at the NFL combine, Brady marked his with a Lombardi trophy. Naturally, he asked the ringless Buffalo quarterback if he’s ever seen one of them.
The proceeds from this event went to a good cause, as nearly 10,258,000 meals were donated to Feeding America. At the end of the day, Brady does some good for the country and adds yet another trophy to his mantlepiece. Not a bad day at the office for the future TV megastar.
