There’s no disputing that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is a winner.

The six-time Super Bowl winner and three-time MVP may very well go down as the best quarterback in NFL history.

That, however, didn’t translate to the golf course.

Brady, during “The Match: Champions for Charity” at Medalist Golf Club in South Florida, struggled on Sunday afternoon.

His shots were all over the place, he was constantly in the trees and looked visibly frustrated through the first few holes — something people aren’t generally accustomed to seeing. 

In his defense, it was pouring rain throughout the day. Brady seemed to take it well, too, and even asked Charles Barkley for swing tips at one point — who instead offered to donate $50,000 if Brady could hit the green on the fourth hole. (He missed it.)

But still, fans had plenty of jokes.

Finally, everyone realized, Brady was just like everyone else.

Brady holes out for birdie, rips pants

After all of that, Brady recovered his golf game perfectly.

On the seventh hole, Brady expertly holed out for birdie from the middle of the fairway — right after Barkley had been talking trash in his ear.

However, he seemed to get a little, well, too excited.

“I split my pants,” Brady said on the next tee. “There was just so much torque in that swing. You don’t see that kind of torque from Tiger.”
