Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and NFL legend Tom Brady enjoyed a round of golf together on the first day of the PGA Tour’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
The two superstar signal-callers were paired in a group of four, with Brady playing alongside Keegan Bradley and Allen teaming up with Keith Mitchell, and were seen fist-bumping at one stage in the contest.
This year’s tournament has a $20 million purse for the eventual winner.
In the run-up to the event, the PGA revealed the respective handicaps of the amateur stars taking part, some of which may come as a surprise.
A handicap is a numerical score that measures a golfer’s ability and helps level the playing field between golfers of different abilities. It gives the number of strokes a golfer is expected to make over or under par on any particular course.

For example, Brady has a handicap of eight. More surprising, however, is Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ handicap of four, which is dramatically different from 2023, when the four-time NFL MVP won the event with a supposed 10 handicap.
Rodgers and teammate Ben Silverman finished at an all-time 26-under that year to win by a single stroke.
Meanwhile, the Bills’ Allen and retired two-time NBA champion Pau Gasol boast handicaps of nine and 10, respectively.
As for the other pairings, Beau Hossler played with Rodgers, while Emiliano Grillo teams with Gasol.
A year ago, Allen’s partner, Mitchell, referred to Rodgers’ 10 handicap as “crap.”
“I think Josh (Allen) and I won. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t count,” Mitchell said. ‘His pretense was c**p.
‘I didn’t look. I think we were, at 18 we might have been up there. But if we finish second to Aaron, I consider us to win the trophy.’
Also among the amateurs, Dr. Neal Elattrache, the surgeon who repaired Rodgers’ ruptured Achilles last year.
