Danny Woodhead caught passes from Tom Brady. He even played, and scored a touchdown, in Super Bowl 46. Now? Well, he’s trying his hand at a different sport.

The former New England Patriot played in a local U.S. Open qualifier at Omaha Country Club on Wednesday and posted an even-par 71, good enough for a third-place tie and a spot in final qualifying.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Woodhead tee it up in a USGA championship. He qualified and played in the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Chambers Bay.

“The Super Bowl was awesome to play in, whatever, but this is out of my comfort zone,” he said after qualifying alongside partner Michael Wilheim in 2020.

Although it’s no longer for touchdowns, his celebration game is still strong.

If you want a closer look at Woodhead’s game, he played a few rounds with the No Laying Up boys at Sweetens Cove.
