Aaron Rodgers drains clutch birdie putt to win...

The four-time NFL MVP then drove his tee shot onto the green on No. 10, a par-4, 306-yard hole. Brady made the birdie putt to pull the duo back to even.

The two sides would remain tied entering the 12th and final hole. Rodgers was the only golfer to find the green on the par-3, 160-yard hole on his first shot. Mahomes, after going in the water on his tee shot, hit the fringe with his mulligan shot.

Allen nearly made the putt from 75 feet out, putting it just outside the hole. After Allen settled for the par, Rodgers sank the birdie putt for the win. It marked Brady’s first win at “The Match” in three tries.

“We’ve played together probably three times competitively and every time he’s made a 15-foot putt to win,” Brady said. “It didn’t surprise me when it went in. It happened last year (at “The Match”). He and I had a fun match together about 10 years ago, but what a great time.”

It was the first time Mahomes and Allen have participated in “The Match.” Afterward, the Kansas City quarterback said he’d like to possibly have a rematch with Rodgers and Brady next year.

“It was a lot of fun,” Mahomes said. “Obviously, we wanted to win but we were able to give it a good one. Hopefully, we can run this back next offseason.”
