Battered and bruised from Sunday’s blowout loss, Peyton Manning isn’t slipping into some Super Bowl seclusion.
No, he is repairing this week on the Monterey Peninsula.
Golf Channel insider/Golf Digest senior writer Tim Rosaforte reported Tuesday on “Morning Drive” that Manning was a late entry into this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Rosaforte said that Manning, a 7 handicap, will be paired with second-year pro Scott Langley, along with former San Francisco 49ers lineman Harris Barton and usual partner Greg Owen.
Many players in the field will be able to relate to Manning’s big-game loss – none more than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick. Mannings’ Broncos eliminated New England in the AFC Championship game. NFL quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith are also in the field.
Manning is apparently a good stick – the 37-year-old boasts a 4.6 index out of Castle Pines and reportedly shot 77 at Augusta National last spring.
