In The Loop: 'The Match' best moments, McCaffery shows off hands

First up in our look around the sports world on this Memorial Day, during the champions for charity golf match this weekend, Tom Brady has quite the day. From being taunted by Peyton Manning and Charles Barkley, to ripping his pants, to making a birdie on the seventh hole earning a $100,000 donation to charity from Brooks Koepka it was a roller coaster kind of day.

The internet had some fun with Tom Brady's golf struggles

The internet had some fun with Tom Brady's golf struggles

On the football field, there is no denying that Tom Brady is one of the best to ever do it. On the golf course, it is a much different story, at least on Sunday.

Participating in 'The Match', a charity golf round that also featured Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Peyton Manning, Brady had some struggles with his golf swing. A few errant shots off the tee coupled with other less-successful moments made Brady look rather human on the green.

Though he is an all-time great at the quarterback position, he looked like every other struggling casual golfer who can't seem to get things right out there. Having those rough swings play out before a national audience, the internet, of course, had some fun Brady's expense.

His opponents and friends from the NFL world also had to chime in. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton now has the unfortunate luck of having to face off against Brady two times in 2020 after the quarterback made the move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, if Brady performs the way he has on the golf course, maybe Payton will feel a little better.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson also threw a jab at Brady, asking if he wanted to try his luck against some less-talented golfers.

Of course, Brady did rebound and show that he can stroke the ball when he needs to. 

It's not very often that the internet can joke about Tom Brady failing at something, so it's no surprise that plenty of people got their jokes in on Sunday.

Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson match to include $10M donation for COVID-19 relief efforts

HOBE SOUND, Fla. (AP) -- The next match involving Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson involves a $10 million donation for COVID-19 relief efforts, along with plenty of bragging rights in a star-powered foursome May 24 at Medalist Golf Club.

Turner Sports announced more details Thursday for "The Match: Champions for Charity," a televised match between Woods and Peyton Manning against Mickelson and Tom Brady.

Medalist is where Woods plays when he's at home. Manning and Brady said they have played there before -- Manning running out of golf balls before reaching the 18th, Brady posting a 106.

The format will be better ball for the front nine and modified alternate shot on the back nine, meaning both players hit tee shots and they take turns from there.

It will be simulcast on May 24 at 3 p.m. EDT on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN, along with pre-match coverage available on the Bleacher Report app.

WarnerMedia and the four players will collectively make a charitable donation of $10 million to benefit various relief efforts locally and nationally. Turner said the match includes a partnership with the "All In Challenge," an initiative that provides food for those in need.

Mickelson beat Woods in a playoff under the lights in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend in 2018. This time, they are bringing in two of the NFL's greatest quarterbacks to add to the entertainment.

The announcement came with a video interview by TNT's Ernie Johnson of the four players, in which Brady said he wanted Woods as a partner until Manning's father called to switch the teams.

The match will be held one week after live golf returns to television for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the PGA Tour and other tours around the world. Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will play a charity match against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff at Seminole Golf Club, one of Florida's most famous courses that will have a televised event for the first time.
