Things are bound to get heated on the golf course between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning during Sunday's "The Match: Champions for Charity." Brady is partnered with Phil Mickelson and will compete against Manning and Tiger Woods, with $10 million or more in prize money going to COVID-19 relief charities.
While Woods is Brady's competitor, that didn't stop the five-time Masters Tournament champion from giving the six-time Super Bowl champion some advice on his swing ahead of their duel.
“You can see Tom gets that face pretty open, and he drops it under and really throws it coming down," Woods said, according to Nick Schwartz of For The Win. "But it shallows out nicely. If he could get it a little more square and not so open at the top ... but then again, that is his natural hand position when he has to throw a football. So that’s going to be … that’s going to take time. He’ll have plenty of time after he’s done playing with Tampa. He can fix that later. But right now, I think he’s doing the right thing by sticking with what he’s doing.”
Brady will be looking to add another win over Manning to his list of achievements and this won't be on the football field. The 42-year-old quarterback has an 11-6 record against Manning in the regular season and playoffs. If he wants to beat the heavily favored combination of Manning and Woods, he should definitely listen to Tiger's advice.
PGA Tour star Justin Thomas will be reporting alongside Amanda Balionis, Charles Barkley, Brian Anderson and Justin Immelman. The match will take place at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., and kick off at 3 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS.
