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

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.

During this time in isolation, there’s been no shortage of creative and entertaining content from our favorite athletes. We’ve seen TikToks, trick shots and of course the most creative workouts.

Here are the rankings of the BEST quarantine workouts we’ve seen, plus some honorable mentions.

10. Tom Brady 

As the newest resident of Tampa Bay, Tom Brady is working on his footwork surrounded by palm trees and sunshine. Notice the privacy screens on the fencing to prevent boaters in Tampa from getting a glimpse of the newest Buccaneer.

9. Odell Beckham Jr.  

If you’re going to choose anyone to do this trust challenge with you, it’s Odell Beckham Jr. He’s putting his patented pregame one-handed catches to the test.

8. LeBron James 

As if LeBron James needed any more motivation, the release of “The Last Dance” will do this to you. James is using bands and weights in the hot sun to work on his core strength.

7. Mike Gesicki 

We’ve seen NFL players use the Jug football throwing machine, but Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki took it to the next level. He made throwing this ball over a house, running through the house and catching it look easy. 

6. Hunter Greene 

Cincinnati Reds top pitching prospect Hunter Greene is showing off his training regime, and it looks a bit different than most. This is impressive, but seriously who is driving the car?!

5. Joey Gallo 

If this doesn’t make you flinch, I don’t know what will. Texas Rangers’ Joey Gallo has some guts to have batting practice in his house, it’s all fun and games until a ball goes flying through the window. There goes that security deposit!

4. Rob Gronkowski and Venus Williams 

Rob Gronkowski and Venus Williams just won Instagram Live. Williams has been hosting workouts for her followers during quarantine, but when Gronk joins in on the fun, things get interesting. Who needs weights when you can use your trophies?

3. James Harrison 

James Harrison isn’t in the league anymore, but he continues to find ways to remind us not to forget that he’s a 2x Super Bowl Champ. Why do bicep curls with one trophy, when you have two? #JamesHarrisonProbz

2. Simone Biles 

USA Gymnastics may have canceled the national championship, but Biles can host her own in her kitchen. 

1.  Alex Smith 
Since suffering a gruesome leg injury on November 18th 2018, recovery and rehab has ave been top priority for Redskins QB Alex Smith. Everyone has celebrated their quarantine birthday a little differently, but this is how Alex spent his 36th. To see him running drills, working on footwork and throwing passes is truly inspiring.

Kevin Hart and Russell Westbrook 

Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban
