Rodgers hits the links after football

By Rob Demovsky

Football season is over, but you can still see some NFL stars -- including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- in competition this week.

Rodgers is in the field at the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He’s the amateur partner of PGA Tour professional Jerry Kelly, a native of Madison, Wis. Rodgers and Kelly tee off Thursday at 12:39 p.m. ET (9:39 a.m. local time).

The pairings list Rodgers as a 7-handicap. His official USGA handicap index is 5.4 via the Wisconsin State Golf Association. His home course is Green Bay Country Club.

Of the NFL quarterbacks in the field, Rodgers is tied for the lowest handicap with Peyton Manning. Tom Brady is listed as an 8, while Alex Smith is a 9.

Brady’s coach, Bill Belichick (a 14 handicap), also is in the field and is in the same group with Brady.

Another group to watch includes a pair of ESPN NFL personalities Chris Berman and Herm Edwards, both 18 handicaps.

TV coverage of the event is on Golf Channel and CBS. The NFL stars are sure to get some air time.
