Tom Brady is one of footballs top QB’s, but that doesn’t stop him from having golf on his mind. When asked about his hot streak this season he replied:
“As far as the mechanics, I’ve really tried to work on those. A lot of them are probably pretty much the same whether it’s a five-yard pass or it’s a 50-yard pass. The mechanics of the throw are very similar.”
“It would be like hitting a wedge or a driver. It’s the same swing. There’s just a little nuance to it that may be a little different. So I haven’t hit the driver as well as I probably hit the wedges, but if I can hit the driver a little better, it would make things a little bit easier on our team.”
This just shows how valuable the golf mentality is, even for a pro football player. So far this season, Brady has thrown for 22 touchdowns and two interceptions, while posting a 113.2 QB rating and leading the Pats to an 8-0 start.
Obviously it’s working, and all he can do is improve, just like every golfer strives to do.
