The NFL season might be over for the Packers and the Bills, but the trash talk carried over to the golf course for quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen this weekend with both players taking part in the annual Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Rodgers emerged victorious at the event, finishing at 26-under par alongside partner Ben Silverman. The pair was one shot ahead of runner-ups Peter Malnati and retired FedEX president and CEO Don Colleran, and four shots clear of Allen and partner Keith Mitchell.
Though Rodgers beat Allen fair and square, the Bills quarterback supposedly had some gripes with the legitimacy of the title, because there were only three rounds played for the pro-am event.
“One hundred percent,” Allen said when asked if Rodgers’s win should come with an asterisk. “It’s only three rounds and a 2.6 handicap got 10 shots? Come on now. I don’t know. I’m not the person to ask that question. But it is what it is.”
Rodgers on the other hand made clear that he didn’t mind the shortened event, just that his name will now be on the Wall of Champions behind the first tee at Pebble Beach.
“Josh Allen was telling me there’s going to be an asterisk by this win because there was only three rounds,” Rodgers said, per ESPN. “But I think our names are going to be up there for a long time.”
Rodgers was the talk of the Pro-Am event this weekend as he determines what his future in the NFL will entail. However, he’ll surely take Sunday to enjoy his latest championship before thinking about what’s next for him in the world of football.
