One of the NFL’s all-time great quarterbacks is apparently a pretty good stick, too.
Peyton Manning, the cerebral signal-caller for the Denver Broncos, reportedly played 54 holes at Augusta National last weekend, posting a best score of 77, according to a report Tuesday in the Los Angeles Times.
Fittingly, Manning teed it up alongside Broncos coach John Fox and John Elway, the Hall of Fame QB and Denver’s executive vice president of football operations.
Last month, after joining a random threesome for nine holes, Manning reportedly aced the 166-yard seventh hole at Castle Pines outside Denver. Not surprisingly, the 6-foot-5-inch, 230-pounder can launch the ball a long way, too – he used 8-iron on the hole for his second career ace.
“The guys I was playing with this time, they were so excited,” he told the Times. “I mean, I was excited, but you’ve seen me when I throw a touchdown; I’m kind of ho-hum. These guys went nuts.”
