Tom Brady cold tops tee shot at Pebble Beach, has never looked more human

Tom Brady has immense wealth, model looks and style (Just look at that cardigan!), and a record seven Super Bowl rings. But the living legend has never appeared more human than he did on Friday at Pebble Beach.

We know from Josh Allen that Brady lost a battle between the Quarterbacks—not to mention a few of those big bucks he'll get from Fox Sports to analyze games beginning next season—but it turns out things got worse. Much, much worse. Specifically, with Tom's tee shot on the opening hole at Pebble Beach. And unfortunatley for Brady, multiple people were recording on their phones.

Check it out as Brady absolutely cold tops his drive off No. 1, barely advancing his golf ball off the tee box:

Yikes. That's about as embarrassing as it gets.

OR, if you're like much of the country that always rooted against Tom, it's about as good as it gets. And for those people in particular, here's another angle of Brady's brutal shot:

Talk about a pretty DEFLATING way to start your day, huh? Sorry, couldn't resist.

Not surprisingly, Brady, playing to an 8-handicap, and PGA Tour partner Keegan Bradley didn't win the 36-hole pro-am portion of the event. Although, they still managed to finish a respectable T-20.

Allen and Keith Mitchell finished T-6 as Rory McIlroy and Jeff Rhodes, a nine-handicapper who serves as co-managing partner of TPG Capital, won the title. Defending champ Aaron Rodgers, playing to a 4 handicap instead of his much talked-about 10 last year, finished T-12 with Beau Hossler.

As for Brady, he shook off that tough start to play pretty well. Kinda like he did that Super Bowl against the Falcons a few years back. Respect. So as much as we'd like to pile on, these things happen can happen to anyone. Even an 8-handicap who happens to have seven Super Bowl rings.
