Peyton Manning Shoots 77, Hits Hole in One at Augusta, Could be Sign for 2013 Season
Manning recently shot a 77 at Augusta National — which is the home of the annual Masters Tournament — while playing with Broncos head coach John Fox and vice president of football operations John Elway. The latter shot a 72 and Fox kept his score a secret, but did mention that Augusta added six strokes to his handicap.
A few days before Manning’s trip to Augusta he joined a random threesome at a Denver area golf course and knocked down a hole in one on a 166-yard par three.
I don’t know Manning’s history on the golf course or even what his handicap is, but I do know that a hole in one does not come very often and they require a little skill along with a lot of luck.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for Manning and the Broncos in 2013. Although the Broncos will not be hoping for luck to get them to a Super Bowl, they will not mind getting a little of it along the way.
My experience is that in any sports championship run, a teams has to have a little luck, especially when the postseason gets down to a only a few teams because all teams are very good at that point.
Here’s to hoping the Broncos get a lucky play or two this year late in their Super Bowl run.
