Watch Tom Brady hole it in well off the green on the 7th hole, then split his pants

Tom Brady had a brutal start to The Match, but on hole 7 he had his best shot of the day by a long shot.

Tom Brady struggled in a big way on the first six holes of The Match. That changed in a HUGE way on No. 7. On his fourth shot, from the fairway, Brady holed it out with ease. Maybe he’s just been sand-bagging us this whole time!

It’s notable that even with him holing it out, Tiger Woods was able to halve the hole with a birdie of his own. Woods almost won the hole with an Eagle, but it just barely lipped out. Woods and Peyton Manning currently lead Brady and Phil Mickelson by three holes in the match play contest.

Brady went in to grab his ball from the hole, and then managed to split his pants. I suppose he’ll trade that for the shot he made given how the first six holes went.
