Captial One’s The Match is returning to TNT later this summer, with another stacked foursome taking to the fairways of the Jack Nicklaus-designed Reserve at Moonlight Basin.
The annual charity golf match will pit Phil Mickelson, recent PGA Championship winner, and Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and golf star Bryson DeChambeau.
The Match will be July 6th, with donations during the coverage going to Feeding America. A year ago, Brady and Mickelson lost to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, while the charity side of the event raised millions of dollars for COVID-19 relief.
It will serve as another competition between Brady and Rodgers and their second of the 2021 calendar year after the NFC Championship Game last January. We know Rodgers is in Hawai’i at the moment rather than at Packer OTA’s. Perhaps the MVP is upping his golf skills this week in paradise, and I don’t blame him. I know I’d love to be!
