"The Match" is underway, despite the rainy weather casting a shadow over the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, FL. Before even stepping into the first tee box, NFL legend Peyton Manning had already started a psychological match against Tom Brady by bringing up his Super Bowl losses. Classic.
The Match: Champions for Charity has begun with much fanfare on TNT. The two-on-two golf match features the pair of Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson against Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning. The star-studded contest began with a Jamie Foxx narration, an introduction from Samuel L. Jackson, and features NBA legend Charles Barkley on the sidelines.
Manning wasted no time starting to taunt Brady, mentioning his brother Eli Manning and Chicago Bears quarterback Nick Foles as potential caddy options. Eli Manning and the New York Giants defeated Brady twice on football's greatest stage, in Super Bowl XLII and XLVI, and Foles got him too, of course.
Nick Foles began the 2017 season as a backup on the Philadelphia Eagles, then proceeded to defeat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII as the Eagles' starting QB.
If Manning had actually brought either of the two to caddy for him it would've been hysterical, but seeing him mention it to taunt Brady was amazing in its own right. As "The Match" continues, we will hopefully get to see more trash talk from the two NFL legends as they golf beside the PGA's finest.
