Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have it all figured out. We’re talking golf, not football. While the Northeast is buried by snow once again, Belichick and Brady are in California’s warm, sunny Monterey Peninsula, taking part in this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, a PGA Tour event that features a celebrity-heavy field.
Not only will the Patriots coach and quarterback be playing Pebble Beach Golf Links this week, they’ll be paired together in the same foursome. Belichick will be teaming up with Brookline native James Driscoll, while Brady’s pro partner will be Ricky Barnes, who has been Belichick’s pro in past AT&Ts.
The tournament uses a three-course rotation. Belichick and Brady will be playing Spyglass Hill on Thursday (8:22 a.m. local tee time), Monterey Peninsula on Friday (10:01 a.m. local time), and Pebble Beach on Saturday (9:06 a.m. local time). The Golf Channel has coverage on Thursday and Friday, with CBS taking over on the weekend, when you can bet Belichick and Brady will get plenty of Saturday airtime. Only the top 25 pro-am teams qualify for Sunday’s final round, which is also at Pebble Beach.
Belichick prepared for the tournament by playing a practice round on Wednesday. In his group? Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who is partnering with Scott Langley.
