Phil Mickelson Makes History At PGA Championship!

No player in the NBA, NFL, NHL or MLB has ever done that 🤯

After winning, the 50-year-old spent his celebration by responding to people all over social media. Amongst the people who congratulated him were none other than active NFL legend Tom Brady. Last year, the two paired up in a match against Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning. However, the duo was unable to defeat Woods and Manning.
Following Mickelson’s win, Brady tweeted out to the golfer with the words, “That’s my quarterback!!! LFG.”

“We have some unfinished business,” Mickelson wrote in response. “Let’s get another match and find a pair to give a beat down.”
We have some unfinished business. Let’s get another match and find a pair to give a beat down. 😏

It certainly looks like the golfer is ready to run it back with Brady and find another pair to face in a gold match. While they could look for a pair, someone else is willing to face the two. A familiar name that Brady knows too well chimed in it was none other than Eli Manning. “I’m free,” wrote the New York Giants legend.

The younger Manning has beaten Brady twice in their Super Bowl matchups, so it will be interesting if they face one another in a golfing game.
