Tom Brady Compares His Throwing Skills To His Golf Swing

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.
