Retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning is apparently set to become a member of Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters, according to a report from Austin Rhodes of the Augusta-area radio station, WGAC.

Augusta National does not (and is under no obligation to) discuss membership matters, so it’s not like there will be confirmation or denial. However, according to Woody Paige of the Colorado Springs Gazette, Manning was playing golf at Augusta National recently.

“Peyton’s at Augusta [National] playing golf,” Manning’s father, Archie, told Paige. “I think he’s really enjoying his retirement, but I know he misses the game.”

Manning retired after winning the Super Bowl in February with the Denver Broncos, his second Super Bowl win.

The Tennessee product already has memberships at a number of prestigious clubs, including Castle Pines Golf Club and Cherry Hills Country Club in Colorado and Crooked Stick near Indianapolis.
