The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is back this week, promising $20 million in purse money for a star-studded field that includes NFL legends Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen, as well as two-time NBA champion Pau Gasol.
Best of all, the PGA has revealed the respective handicaps of the amateur stars, some of which may come as a surprise.
For example, Brady has an 8 handicap, which is a numerical score that measures a golfer’s ability and helps level the playing field between golfers of different abilities. The handicap indicates the number of strokes a golfer is expected to make over or under par on any particular course.
More surprising is Rodgers’ 4 handicap, which is a dramatic departure from 2023, when the four-time NFL MVP won the event with a supposed 10 handicap. He and teammate Ben Silverman finished at an all-time 26-under to win by a single stroke.
Meanwhile, the Bills’ Allen and the retired Gasol boast of handicaps of nine and 10, respectively.

As for the pairings, Brady will play with Keegan Bradley, while Beau Hossler joins the Jets’ Rodgers, Emiliano Grillo teams with Gasol, and Keith Mitchell plays with Allen.
A year ago, 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.
The pro-am event starts on Thursday at 15:00 local time.
