DeChambeau, Aaron Rodgers to face off Mickelson, Tom Brady in “The Match”

The Clovis East alum, PGA standout, and meme subject Bryson DeChambeau is taking on Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson on the green this July.

Days after Clovis East alum and PGA standout Bryson DeChambeau sparked a meme following the conclusion of the PGA Championship, he announced that he’ll pair up NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers to form a in a much-hyped golf challenge in early July.

The 2020 U.S. Open champion is participating in the fourth-edition of “The Match,” hosted by Capitol One, to take place at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Mont. on July 6.


He and Rodgers will square off against a duo that’s participated in the past: newly-minted PGA Champion Phil Mickelson and Super Bowl MVP quarterback Tom Brady.

The first version of the Pro-Am, which took place in the depths of the coronavirus pandemic, featured Peyton Manning paired up with Tiger Woods against the Brady-Mickelson duo.

The 2020 showdown, held at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., was a follow-up to a 2018 head-to-head between Woods and Mickelson.

Woods and Manning won the 2020 Pro-Am by a single hole after a late rally by Mickelson and Brady.

DeChambeau wasted little time promoting the upcoming golf challenge:

Brady, for his part, immediately started cracking jokes tying “The Match” announcement to DeChambeau’s run-in with PGA Championship runner-up Brooks Koepka with multiple attempts to get under his newly-dubbed opponents’ skin.
