Tom Brady has amazing reaction to Phil Mickelson birdie at PGA originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, like many golf fans around the world, is very much enjoying Phil Mickelson’s performance during the 2021 PGA Championship at Ocean Course at Kiawah Island.
Mickelson entered Sunday’s final round atop the leaderboard. After hitting his tee shot into the bunker on hole No. 5, Mickelson chipped in a birdie to the amazement of the crowd and people watching at home.
That includes Brady, who had a great reaction to Mickelson’s impressive shot with the following tweet, which included a classic Terrell Owens line.
Brady and Mickelson have known each other for a while, and they even played together last year during “The Match”. It was Brady and Mickelson playing against Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods in a tournament that raised money for COVID-19 relief.
If Mickelson hangs on and emerges victorious Sunday, he’ll become the oldest major tournament winner in PGA history at age 50. And if anyone can appreciate accomplishing great feats late in their career, it’s Brady, who’s won two of his NFL record seven Super Bowl titles since turning 40.
