Patrick Mahomes has become one of the most recognizable faces of the NFL. This is thanks, in no small part, to a Super Bowl ring with the Kansas City Chiefs, his appearances in TV commercials, and now his involvement with the charity golf event known as The Match.
Former Indianapolis Colts punter and NFL analyst Pat McAfee took to Twitter during the golf outing to give his opinion on Mahomes and his play on the course, which included a few beers, plenty of trash talk, and some beautifully hit balls along the way.
“3 beers deep.. talking some shit.. driving the ball 318 middle of the fairway… Patrick Mahomes is becoming America’s Sweetheart QUICKLY on this golf course.”
This year’s version of The Match was a faceoff of old guys versus young guns. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers teamed up to take on Mahomes and partner Josh Allen. The event was full of the usual barbs tossed among the participants and the announcers, which included NBA great Charles Barkley and Arizona Cardinals defensive star J.J. Watt.
During The Match, Tom Brady, for once, was not the best player among the NFL stars. The majority of his drives ended up in the trees, and it was Rodgers who carried the team for the most part. Allen even joked that the Packers quarterback honed his golf game by skipping OTAs.
