NFL quarterbacks and PGA Tour golfers are some of the most recognizable athletes in today's sports world. So let's draw comparisons between these two groups of stars.

Aaron Rodgers and Brooks Koepka, Kirk Cousins and Rickie Fowler and other QB/golfer comparisons originally appeared on nbcsportswashington.com

You may not immediately think quarterbacks and golfers have a lot in common, but the two types of athletes do share quite a few similarities.

That's the purpose of this NBCSportsWashington.com gallery, to pair up passers with golfers because of key traits they share. Who's the Patrick Mahomes on the links? Who's the Dustin Johnson of the NFL?

Those answers, and plenty more, lie in this list. So, go ahead and run through it, then head over to @PeteHaileyNBCS on Twitter to praise (or rip... yeah, most likely rip) the choices. No one will throw a flag or assess you a two-stroke penalty if you have some disagreements.
