Judging by this scorecard, Peyton Manning is treating The Match like the Super Bowl

May 23, 2020

Peyton Manning's preparation is the stuff of legend. It's the main reason why he was still able to win an NFL MVP and a Super Bowl after a neck fusion that left him with the arm strength of a bad high school quarterback (OK, so an all-time great defense didn't hurt with the latter). And now it appears that the Hall-of-Famer has the same attention to detail when it comes to The Match: Champions for Charity.

Ahead of Sunday's round that will raise more than $10 million for COVID-19 relief efforts, Peyton played a practice round at Medalist Golf Club with partner Tiger Woods. And Manning made plenty of notes on The Match's venue on his scorecard, which he showed to Amanda Balionis, who will be part of Turner's All-Star announcing crew that includes Charles Barkley and Justin Thomas. Check it out:

Talk about putting in work. Nicely done.

Also, nice solid 40 on the front nine by PM before he and TW played alternate shot on the back nine like they will on Sunday. Again, you can't be too prepared.

That being said, we're guessing Tiger, a Medalist member, isn't too happy about his local knowledge getting out to opponents Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. Well, if they can read Manning's scribbling, that is.
