6 golf things that Peyton Manning can do to get over his Super Bowl loss

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

With his legacy likely taking a hit and his NFL postseason record dropping to 11-12, it's fair to say Peyton Manning didn't have the best time at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

But lucky for him, Manning is an avid golfer, and if golf can help Bruce Jenner get over his divorce, it can surely help Manning ease those post-Super Bowl blues. Because we never like to see any golfer sad, we decided to put together a list of golfy things that can help lift Manning's spirits:

Take a buddies trip to Bandon Dunes

It's really beautiful -- something our editors can attest to -- and its old school links setup makes it feel like you're stepping back into the past (perhaps even to a time before the stupid Super Bowl even existed). The one downside? It's in Oregon, which might be too close to Washington for Manning's liking.

Buy a GolfBoard

For just $3,500, Peyton Manning can substitute wallowing in a golf cart for feeling like a fearless pioneer. Golf's latest form of transportation involves surfing around at the speed of a regular golf cart, and was a hit at the 2014 PGA Show.

Play a pro-am again with Tiger

The two are friends, and there's photographic evidence that Tiger makes Manning smile. It's almost definitely too late for the pair to enter the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but there are plenty of other opportunities for the two to join forces.

Adopt a new pet

It's not really golfy, but if Amanda Dufner's Instagram feed is anything to go by, Prince Louie Dufner seems to have been a real bundle of joy. Maybe Manning's new pet and Prince Louie could even organize a play date. . .

Buy new clubs

There are a lot of nice, new products this year. And besides, what can possibly be better than binge-spending on golf stuff? 

Get a golf lesson from a robot

Yea, it's actually a real thing. It'll help Manning play better golf, and a cold, heartless robot is guaranteed not to ask about the You-Know-What Bowl.
