Tom Brady has been pairing up with sporting legends for a long time on the golf course including Michael Jordan once in 2006.
Brady will be pairing up Phil Mickelson to take on the golf course against Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau tomorrow in a highly anticipated golfing bout. Brady has ruthlessly trolled the Packers quarterback on social media in the days leading up to the match,
As Aaron Rodgers is wearing a shirt with “I’m offended” on the front, Tom Brady trolls him by saying “I do think [Aaron] would like to go for it more.”
Rodgers responds with “I usually don’t get the option.” 😳

Tom Brady Said Michael Jordan And His Chipping And Putting Led To A Victory
Michael Jordan used to host the Michael Jordan Celebratory Invitational to raise funds for a charity Jordan supported. This tournament ran from 2001-2014.
In 2006, Brady would receive his invite. Jordan is a golf fanatic as several clips from ‘The Last Dance’ showed his fondness for the game.
As a result, Brady had the perfect golfing partner to take him through the tournament. Last year, Brady posted a throwback video about a post-match interview with CBS Boston News reporter Michael Hurley.
In light of Brady’s next golfing bout this video is as relevant as ever. Seeing perhaps the two greatest players of all time team up with is a sight you don’t always get to see.
