Phil/Tom v. Tiger/Peyton

If they counted all penalties and didn’t take mulligans and putted out on every hole, there’s no way in hell they are a 6 and 8 handicap. I know they say that, but that’s horseshit. Not with those swings. 

Peyton is a pretty good golfer and it shows. I have these hypothetical discussions all the time - I’ve got a buddy who’s a 3/4 that’s better than Peyton. He can shoot a 69 or an 80. Usually shoots 75/76 anywhere from the tips. Says if he played Augusta from members tees, he could shoot par. Says if it’s Masters conditions, he’s not breaking 90. Says if he’s in the tourney he wouldn’t break 120. 

I could buy Brady is an 8 if it wasn’t Tom Brady. Clearly the pressure would get to any amateur, but it should less so these celebrity QBs. It’s not getting to Peyton and if he were keeping score, he’d probably shoot an 80-85 today.

Barkley needs to cover pga events

and be able to throw bets at players, real time 

I loved watching the celeb tournament when he was paired with Kevin Nealon from SNL.

I’ve got Peyton at two doubles and a birdie.  He had a lucky 6-5 for a bogey. Can’t remember what he did on the other - either #1 or #2. I think he parred. So he’s 4 over through 5, I think.

Rain delayed it. TNT or TBS or HLN take your pick

Jeez Tom

Don’t act like this shit is easy. It’s not. But I’ve concluded there’s no fucking way he’s an 8. He’s probably a casual 30 handicap golfer that’s gotten more serious about it in later years, but is an 18, at best. When he’s playing from the blue tees he probably breaks 100 half the time and maybe has broken 90 a few times in his life. But he hasn’t played enough to be on this stage. The pressure when playing with 3 guys who are worlds better than you is immense. Add TV, Tiger, Phil and a professional rival?

Pretty cruel to televise Brady's first ever round of golf

They should make him switch to the ladies tees.

I'm prepared to match Koepka's donations

Curious if Koepka pays out on net pars. Only gross pars for me

Barkley is just great 

Brady may be the GOAT, but he has no personality for this type of event

From a golf standpoint, they’d have done a lot better getting Romo and Steph Curry

Couldn’t sell it as well. Manning is probably better than Curry or they are close to equal. Romo would smoke them both. Neither has the appeal of Brady vs Manning.

Yeah, I know it had to do with the names.  

I’ve seen Curry listed as 0 to .6.  Manning is 6.  I’ll take Curry.

Manning is definitely not better than Steph. Steph played a PGA tour event and finished ahead of a few tour regulars.

This is such great entertainment.  Good for Brady for making that shot.

Curry can play.  Manning is OK but he's not anywhere near Curry.

Yeah, Peyton has settled in. He looks like a decent player. Looks like the pressure has gotten to TB, which is crazy. He is human.

Manning has said some really funny things.  I like Tiger’s dry sense of humor.

Manning is pretty funny. my guess is you don't survive with Eli and the other brother unless you have some pretty good shit talking.  

 they really needed Brady with Tiger and Manning with Phil.
