Tom Brady is relentlessly competitive. Whether it's on the football field or against professional athletes of a different sport, Tom is going out there with everything he's got.
That sure was the case earlier this week when he hit the links with Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson ahead of the U.S. Open, which kicked off Thursday.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Rickie said the trio, along with his caddie Joe Skovron and investment banker Jimmy Dunne, played a round at Friar's Head, and it comes as no surprise that Tom left an impression.
"I'll tell you what, Tom Brady can putt. So if I can take that into this week, I think that's the one thing I took off of him that will help me," Rickie said in a press conference on Wednesday.
This isn't Tom's only foray into the golf world. Last year, Bubba Watson and Keegan Bradley watched from the sidelines as the Patriots took on Giants in the preseason, and Keegan said Tom was his sports hero. When the 2016 Ryder Cup team visited Gillette Stadium in September 2016, Jordan Spieth became starstruck at the sight of the GOAT's locker.
Keegan and Jordan aren't alone either. Rickie said his caddie Joe was nervous to play alongside Tom.
"The highlight of my group, Joe, my caddie, played kind of nice. I think he was nervous playing with Tom Brady and Jimmy Dunne, who's a legend in the golf world," Rickie said.
Honestly, who could blame him?
