Aaron Rodgers is pushing golf to the back seat during the off season as he seeks better career shape.
Pro golfers still do a lot of golf in the off season and it affects their in-season run. Rodgers has noticed this so he says less golf for him during the break.
“I put a lot of work in this offseason. As much as I love golf, it’s kind of taken a back seat to my workouts, and I’m light as I’ve been I think ever coming back at this time of the year,” he said.
The star has been away from the game since mid last year and he has not posted any score. The impact was being rusty. He did a few rounds at the AT&T National Pro-Am in February recently but he missed the cut by six strokes.
There were reports that the quarterback could end his golf career with his statements but Stewart Moor – the director of communications of Web.com Tour/PGA Tour Champions – revealed that he signed up for the BMW charity Pro-Am for next month. This means golf fans would still get to see him in action.
There have been other quarterbacks that have equally excelled in golf like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan. Rodger featured in the Masters, the PGA Championship in 2015, aside playing in the State Farm. The 33-year old has had an amazing football career with the Green Bay Packers since 2005, winning the NFL MVP award twice.
