Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning defeated Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in Sunday’s charity golf game, which raised $ 20 million (£ 16.4 million) for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States United.
Legendary NFL quarterback Brady hit the shot of the day out of the fairway on the seventh.
“I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton,” said Woods. “It’s our arena, it’s what we do for a living.
“I couldn’t imagine going into the field and doing what they do,” he added.
The event was played between four of the biggest sports stars in the United States at a Rainy Medalist Golf Club in Florida – Woods’ field – with no caddies and players driving their own golf carts.
It follows on from Rory McIlroy’s 4 million skins event last week involving fellow golfers Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff also in aid of a charity.
The 18-hole game included field challenges for charities – and a lot of trash talk.
Brady, a six-time Superbowl winner, struggled with tall NBA commentator Charles Barkley just before hitting a 100 yard corner punch in the seventh hole.
“When things get tough, the tough starts,” joked Brady.
Then, after giving a short speech, Brady – who joined Tampa Bay in March after 20 years with New England – bent over and split his pants as he picked up the ball from the cup.
The event comes two and a half weeks before the PGA Tour plans to resume its season on June 11.
Woods, 44, who last competed in February and then retired from several tournaments with a back injury, said he was in good health and ready to start the Tour.
