Tom Brady silences Charles Barkley with insane birdie in 'The Match'

Tom Brady's start in "The Match" with former NFL star Peyton Manning and PGA Tour legends Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods wasn't great, leading to an endless parade of criticism on social media.

The six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback found a way to silence the haters with this remarkable shot for birdie on the seventh hole at Medalist Golf Club.

Charles Barkley is part of TNT's telecast, and was in Brady's ear all the way up until he hit the shot.

Unfortunately for Brady, his pants didn't survive the hole.

Warriors star Steph Curry and former Warrior Andre Iguodala both are avid golf fans, and were just like the rest of us after seeing Brady's shot.

The San Mateo native got his mojo back, but he and his partner Mickelson have some catching up to do with Manning and Woods in control.

Watch Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson win Driving Relief charity golf event

First it was Bundesliga earlier this week, now the PGA tour has returned to the live sports lexicon with Sunday's TaylorMade Driving Relief event in Florida. Stars Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy faced off in a skins match against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff.

Adhering to social distance guidelines, McIlroy and Johnson managed to come away with the win, generating more than $5 million for charities supporting those taking on the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The players found a way to have some fun amid the global crisis, as McIlroy brought fans the first bit of live trash talk in what feels like an eternity.

"I think you forget I've won two FedEx Cups that total to $25 million," McIlroy quipped after sinking a putt.

Despite taking the loss on the course, Fowler and Wolff definitely won the facial-hair contest.

There hasn't been a PGA Tour event since the Players' Championship was canceled after the first round on March 12, but there didn't seem to be much rust on the competitors.

NBA and MLB games likely won't be coming back anytime soon, but it was nice once again to have a Sunday featuring the world's best playing down to the wire.
