Wednesday was a big day to pay attention to golf. We were less than 24 hours removed from the unveiling of the field for the first LIV Golf Invitational event and just 24 hours away from kicking off the U.S. Women’s Open in North Carolina and the Memorial in Ohio.
Oh, and then, on Wednesday night, we had a bunch of NFL quarterbacks play golf on TV.
Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady faced off against Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen in the latest (and sixth) edition of The Match, live on TV. Playing a 12-hole contest at Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas, Rodgers and Brady beat Mahomes and Allen 1 up.
But you’re not here for the birdies and bogeys. Here were the most memorable moments of The Match.
Josh Allen’s golf ball
During the pregame, Allen showed Brady the golf ball he was using, which included a logo of a now-famous shirtless Brady photo while at the NFL Combine a couple of decades ago. Brady, who played collegiately at Michigan, at least got a jab in at Allen, who went to Reedley junior college before the University of Wyoming.
“Never heard of that [brand of golf ball],” Brady said, reading it. “You went to a college I never heard of and now are playing golf balls I never heard of.”
