Last year, “The Match” gave us Peyton Manning trash-talking Tom Brady, name-dropping Eli Manning and Nick Foles in the process, in a made-for-TV golf event that also featured Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods on the card.
A year later, Brady is in prime position to be dishing it out. In fact, Brady isn’t wasting any time to start trash-talking his opponent well ahead of this year’s installment:

Ooh, burn! Prolly shoulda gone for it, A-Aron.
It’s Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers as adversaries again. In the rematch we didn’t think we’d see until January 2022. And it’s Brady teaming with Mickelson AGAIN. This time, Rodgers and 2020 U.S. Open winner Bryson DeChambeau will provide the competition. So while Rodgers’ Packers future might be in limbo. At least we know the reigning NFL MVP has time for golf on his busy summer schedule.
The made-for-TV golf event will air on TNT on July 6. It will also help raise money for Feeding America and other charities. So not only will we get some quality golf and professional sh*t-talking, we’ll also see money raised for some good causes. I’m not a huge golf fan, but I’ll tune in — just on the off chance Rodgers wants to air some more grievances and throw a few more subliminal jabs in Brian Gutekunst’s general direction.
