The Match 4 results, Golf Highlights Aaron Rodgers, Bryson DeChambeau Take Down Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson. Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers are the winners of the fourth edition of The Match.
DeChambeau and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won the charity match play tournament on Tuesday night at The Reserve at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana, 3 and 2 over Phil Mickelson and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
Rodgers finished the event with a clutch birdie putt on the 16th hole, one of several he made during the day.
Mickelson currently has a 2-2 record in The Match, which began as a one-on-one match between him and Tiger Woods. Brady has now been defeated twice, both times alongside Mickelson.
“Phil is 2-0 without me and 0-2 with me,” Brady explained. “As a result, I feel like I have a lot of work to do on my golf game.”
Throughout the day, the foursome raised a total of $2.6 million for various organizations.
Barack Obama arrives in time to see Tom Brady drive green.
Former President Barack Obama arrived at The Match just in time for the third hole of the day, when he watched Brady hit an amazing shot from the tee.
Brady blasted a roughly 400-yard drive on a short par-4 to position himself within around 10 feet of the cup, setting up an eagle putt for Mickelson.
DeChambeau also drove the green, but with a 3-wood rather than a driver.
Mickelson missed the eagle putt, but Rodgers missed their eagle putt past the hole, setting up a comeback putt that DeChambeau also couldn’t sink. This handed Brady and Mickelson the victory, bringing the match back to an equal keel.
Larry Fitzgerald sought to persuade Obama to participate in a future episode of The Match before he departed the show.
The former president, on the other hand, was apprehensive, owing to the jokes that would be made about him on social media.
If Chuck does it again and survives, maybe I’ll have a little more courage to walk out there and do it myself,” Obama remarked before signing off.
When Rodgers walked in his par putt on the fourth hole, he did his best Kevin Na impersonation. However, he and DeChambeau were defeated by Mickelson and Brady on that one, giving the team their first lead of the match.
DeChambeau and Rodgers then tied the game up on the sixth hole.
Gronk dials in and blasts Rodgers.
Brady’s longtime buddy Rob Gronkowski called from his nephew’s baseball game in Florida as the foursome approached the par-3 seventh hole.
Gronk felt the urge to check up on his quarterback after a little of joking.
“I’m wondering whether you’re ready,” he said of Brady. “You missed all of OTAs, and you’re now out golfing.”
Brady’s answer was spot on.
“I’m researching my competition,” he said. “I think I’m 30 yards away from Aaron [Rodgers], the Packers’ leader.”
Rodgers, of course, is embroiled in a contract dispute with the Packers and allegedly wants to leave the team.
Gronkowski, who didn’t realise Rodgers was listening in, then took his own shot.
“You’re researching the wrong person,” Gronk pointed out. “Aaron appears to be more sluggish now than I was in retirement.”
The TNT team attempted to persuade Rodgers to address his status with the Packers on the back nine, but he refused.
Soon after, Gronk hung up the phone, and Brady drained a 12-foot putt to but him and Mickelson back on top heading into the eighth. On the 777-yard par-5, Mickelson and Brady got into difficulty and had to concede. A bear appeared near the green as well, but none of the four golfers seemed to notice or care.
“I spotted a couple cougars last night,” Barkley said on the show.
They also split the ninth hole, bringing them to a tie on the back nine.
Rodgers and DeChambeau set off on the back nine.
The Match was finally broken open.
Rodgers and DeChambeau started the back nine with three consecutive birdies to go 3-up, all due to Rodgers’ putts.
They cut the following two holes in half, including the 14th, which was a one-club challenge. Mickelson and Brady did pull one back after a surrender on the 15th, but it was too late. On the 16th, DeChambeau and Rodgers put the finishing touches on the tournament.
On the par-3, Brady missed a long birdie putt, enabling Rodgers to secure the victory with another birdie putt.
“I’m at a loss for words; I felt we played pretty well today,” Mickelson remarked. “I felt Tom struck a lot of fantastic shots today and believe he should be pleased of himself. These people performed better.”
