Thunderstorms threatening Champions for Charity golf event

Then, after giving a short speech, Brady - who joined Tampa Bay in March after 20 years with New England - then bent down and split his trousers as he picked up the ball from the cup.

Mother Nature appears set to rain on the parade for "The Match: Champions for Charity" golf event on Sunday afternoon.

Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in a charity golf match which raised $20m (£16.4m) for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States.


And that's when Brady pulled off the unthinkable, holing out his fourth shot on the par-5.

"Cheap shot", Brady said in response, grinning.

Still, the whole thing was a surreal moment, and even managed to spur a $100,000 donation to charity from Brooks Koepka after the pro challenged Brady to make just one par. Based on Brady's comment, Manning may have struck a nerve with the six-time Super Bowl champion.


Charles Barkley, offering up spicy commentary on Turner Sports, joked with Brady that he wanted a piece of him on the course.

That, however, didn't translate over to the golf course in the early stages.

Football fans got their first glimpse of Tom Brady without Bill Belichick on Sunday and the results weren't pretty. Brady's ball landed just past the hole and spun it back into the cup for a shocking birdie.
