And while this competition may be a bit of a departure from Bucs quarterback Tom Brady's day job - it's still a live tournament where we don't know the results.

National Football League star Tom Brady showed his talent was not just exclusive to an National Football League pitch by holing a 110-yard shot from the fairway.

For the record, Woods and Manning cruised into a three-up lead after dominating the front-nine, an advantage that could have been a couple more had Mickelson not holed a few clutch putts with a trusty old wand nicknamed "Tiger Slayer", while Brady took a little gloss off his spectacular birdie at seven when he split the back of his pants when picking his ball out of the cup.

The event was played between four of America's biggest sports stars at a rainy Medalist Golf Club in Florida - Woods' home course - with no caddies and players driving their own golf buggies.

But then Charles Barkley got thrown into the mix.

Yi who is China's foreign minister said the United States is not only battling the coronavirus but also "a political virus". Those who would bring such litigation against China are "living in a daydream and will humiliate themselves", Wang said.

Brooks Koepka also jumped in on taking shots at Brady tweeting: "I'll donate 100k through the @bkcharityfund if @TomBrady makes a par on the front 9".

"I can't wait to go to Tiger's place and take him down", Mickelson told Golfweek.

"Despite everyone else wanting to play it elsewhere".

"Do we keep it close, do we blow them out ... we don't want to have viewers turn off if we're 9-up through nine, that's probably not going to be good".
