Manning Keeps It in the Short Stuff
Since Manning retired in 2015, he has had a lot more time to practice on the links. Brady has been a little bit busier winning Super Bowls, so Manning might have the advantage heading into this match.
Brady even gave a little jab about Manning’s retirement time before the match was even planned.
Not true. Peyton is the better golfer right now. He’s had much more practice these past few years. https://t.co/etoGOmd0c0

Although this match is for charity, doesn’t mean these two guys won’t compete. Manning has the upper hand coming into the match and he will want to assert that on the very first hole.
The first hole at The Medalist Golf Club is a straight forward 400 yard Par 4. Depending on what tees Manning and Brady will be playing, it will play a little shorter.
There will obviously be some nerves on the first tee for the two football guys as millions watch from their homes. However, with the extra time Manning has had to practice over the last few years, I think he will stripe one on this short Par 4.
Moreover, having Woods as your partner takes a little bit of the pressure off as he’ll more than likely hit the fairway with an iron or wood on the first tee.
Manning will want to instill his dominance over Brady right out of the gate and hitting the fairway on his first tee shot is the easiest way to do that.
Best Bet: Peyton Manning FIR on Hole No. 1 (-140)
Is “Omaha” in the Gameplan?
The audible call that haunted defenses for years: “Omaha”. Probably a word that Tom Brady hates hearing even today.
Well, it was a staple in Peyton Manning’s career as he continually manipulated world-class defenses with one simple word.

So, if Omaha was used to call a last-second audible at the line of scrimmage, can we potentially see an Omaha call with a last-second club change? Another possibility is for Woods and Brady to use it to try and throw Manning off his golf game.
Realistically, I don’t see Omaha being said at all. Although Manning likes to joke around, he is probably very annoyed with people asking him about it, and asking him to say it.
If Manning is taking jabs at anyone they will be directed towards Brady as he’ll try to get inside Brady’s kitchen to win the match.
Best Bet: “Omaha” will not be said by any player (-350)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
