After weeks of trash talk, The Match 2022 finally took place on Wednesday, pitting a team of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers against Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes. These star quarterbacks had their clutch genes put to the test in what turned out to be a close contest.
Who Won the Match Golf?
The Match 2022 was a fierce battle between the top competitors in the league. Brady and Rodgers gained an early two-stroke lead after the first two holes, but Allen and Mahomes came back to tie things on hole 5. Things remained evened up until hole 8, when the Allen-Mahomes duo took its first lead.
The veteran pairing of Brady-Rodgers dug in to eventually draw even at -2 on hole 10 and hole 11, culminating in a do-or-die final hole 12. That's when Rodgers stepped up and delivered in crunch time, like we've seen him do numerous times, sinking a birdie on the last hole to secure a win by one stroke.
