Is Aaron Rodgers considering switching to golf? Well, after the 2023 season, it seems reasonable. In his debut game with the Jets, he tore his Achilles. Just four snaps into the game, and he was out for the entire season. A-Rod has been on an almost superhuman recovery track. But still. An entire season was lost, just like that. But it seems he has a backup career in mind – that of a golf prodigy.

As the PGA Tour is set to start tomorrow, Rodgers is going to play as well. Yeah, you heard that right. The 4x NFL MVP is going to play in the biggest golf tournament in the world. And it makes sense. Golf is not at all a physical sport, unlike football. No risk of tearing an Achilles in golf.

Just a few days ago, he was seen playing golf with his O-linemen in Las Vegas. Was it an NFL team bonding session, or was he prepping for the PGA Tour? Both actually. But yeah, to clear the air, no, he’s not switching to golf. He just loves playing the sport during his free time. And the PGA has special matches in which non-career golf players get to play as well. The organization took to Instagram to announce the star lineup for the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Alex Smith, Buster Posey and Pau Gasol. These are the heavy-hitters who are going to play. And guess what? A-Rod won the trophy the last time. Will he bag the prize this time as well? And how much can he win? The total purse for the entire event is a whopping $20 million. However, should the Jets’ QB win the first place, he will get to take home only $3.6 million.

“Definitely Not”: Nick Sirianni Shatters Opinions of Benching Jalen Hurts Amid Eagles’ QB’s Health Rumors

You’d be surprised to know that Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen had played as well. And what’s even more exciting is that they played against their seniors.

It was not the ending you’d expect. Brady and Rodgers teamed up against Mahomes and Allen. “Josh was talking a lot of s**t before the match,” Brady revealed on his podcast. “He had this big little talkative mouth on the driving range and the day before when we got on the course.” It was supposed to be a friendly game. But Allen’s attitude spiced the atmosphere.

He wasn’t even there on the greens for most of the match. “It was really unfortunate for Patrick that Josh left him hanging all day,” Brady sympathized with the 2x Super Bowl champ. However, for all his trash talk, he ended up losing the match to Brady and Rodgers.

I am a hardcore believer in the ?Mamba Mentality?, which certainly applies to the NFL. The sport is not just about physical prowess but also demands a powerful mindset. Growing up, I spent time with athletes on the neighborhood soccer field.
