2022 Match Results: Aaron Rodgers crushes clutch shot as Tom Brady beats Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes

Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers know a thing or two about winning NFL games over clutch games in the last two minutes, and the future Pro Football of Famers pair proved it again Wednesday by translating their unique ability to measure victory in achieving or breaking golf course situations. Rodgers sank a 15-foot shot on the 12th and final hole of the game to send him and Brady to victory over Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes at Wayne Golf Club in Las Vegas.

“I felt really satisfied [the putt]To be honest, Rodgers said. “Tommy gave me a great read. I heard Trevor [Immelman] and Charles [Barkley] In my head he told me I was going to do it, and I felt so good about the line when I hit it, I knew it would start. It was a fun day. “

Rodgers finished the round where he started in the first with this birdie knockout. Brady’s previous attempt on the 12th crossed the hole but only after Allen nearly drowned what would have been an impressive 80 feet. Also on Allen’s strike line, it was Barkley’s bid to jump into a lake surrounding the green, but the ball settled inches to the right of the hole, keeping Chuckster dry for the rest of the evening.

Brady and Rodgers took an early lead 2 UP through the first and second holes, but Allen and Mahomes blasted off from there with Chiefs quarterback to do the heavy lifting. Mahomes had some world-class iron shots and had the ball to back some of his approach, which was a bit surprising. Once he started dropping beer on the third hole, his driver straightened up a bit as well thanks to the “swinging juice” impregnated, as announcer JJ Watt called him.

Mahomes and Allen won the third hole to pull inside one, and neither team advanced by more than one other on the road. The racket has been the Mahomes’ magic club all along. He poured it (and walked) it from across the yard while his band tied Brady and Rodgers on the fifth. He’s done so many hits that I thought Jordan Spieth’s 2015 season would take off his Mahomes uniform and reveal himself. The Allen-Mahomes also needed them, as Allen wasn’t bringing as much to the table as was announced.

The youths kept rising and advanced onto the eighth hole, but Brady, who had been choppy all day– Even hit a cold leg sometime – He ultimately contributed something when he tied the game back with a clutch shot of his own in 10th place to set the table for Rodgers at the end.

Immelman talked about how well Rodgers did throughout the day – he hit him well early on too – just as the Packers star climbed to his last throw and got in with a brutal fist pump before he even got close. the cup.

As fun as the early parts of the event were—Brady dropped an F-bomb on the first touchpoint and Allen used golf balls with Brady’s infamous NFL Combine picture on them—I got a little nervous on the stretch of a super four—the rival men went after winning.

“Things got really serious, and we went down a little bit,” Rodgers said. “These two were playing really well, and we didn’t want to get out of here with L.”

Wednesday was the sixth edition of The Match overall but the first that didn’t include any professional golfers. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau have all featured prominently, as have Peyton Manning, Rodgers and Brady over the past few years. Mahomes and Allen were new to the party, but they definitely had fun and brought in a lot of fans with both the Chiefs Kingdom and Bills Mafia being well represented.

This version of the event proved that while the participation of professional golfers certainly brings more quality to the show, as long as the thing is running relatively quickly, there is plenty of good banter, golf is at least above average (which it was) and the broadcast is can That this funny and hilarious establishment operate for as long as it wants to continue its show.
