While Brady will have pro golfer Phil Mickelson on his side, Rodgers will be teaming up with up and coming star Bryson DeChambeau.

Tom Brady & Aaron Rodgers set to clash again in unfamiliar territory     

Set to held on July 6, the charity event will be held at the Reserve at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky Montana. The second instalment of The Match’ is set to be televised by the Turner Network and live coverage of the event will begin at 5 p.m.

This time, the proceeds from the event are set to benefit Feeding America. Last time, Brady paired with Mickelson, the two took on the duo of NFL Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and legendary golfer Tiger Woods

Brady being the competitive beast that he is won’t be taking this event lightly. Losing out to Manning and Woods last time around, Brady will be gunning for a win over Rodgers.

Rodgers too will look to gain some bragging rights over his NFC rival. Following a sensational 2020 regular season, Rodgers guided his Packers side to the NFC title game in 2020. 

But even his heroics couldn’t stop Brady and the Tamp Bay Buccaneers from picking up a win and a ticket to the Super Bowl.

The two quarterbacks are at contrasting stages in their careers. While Brady is as happy as he has ever been achieving success with his new side, Rodgers is looking to jump ship.
