Taking Heat For Too Much Golf

Johnny Manziel

Could Johnny Football have been Johnny Golf? The Heisman Trophy winning quarterback's father, Paul, was once a mini-tour pro, and he passed on the game to his son. An ESPN The Magazine profile on Manziel showed he's a fierce competitor on the course, where his bombastic nature can manifest itself in verbal rants and thrown clubs. Give him credit, though, for heading off potential issues with his new employer, the Cleveland Browns. Manziel was to play in a pair of HP Byron Nelson Pro-Ams after the NFL draft, but pulled out to attend to various Browns functions.
