Former Broncos QB Peyton Manning to play with Tiger Woods in Memorial Tournament Pro-Am – DenverBroncos.com (blog)
Broncos fans will see a familiar face during the Memorial Tournament’s Pro-Am in late May.
Former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will be paired with 14-time Major winner Tiger Woods for the event, according to Sports Illustrated, and the duo will take on the field on May 30.
The two have played together in a Pro-Am before. In 2009, Woods and Manning played at the Quail Hollow Championship, and they also participated in a Pro-Am at Bay Hill in 2005.
“It’s everything you’d think it would be,” Manning said in 2009. “It’s really special. Watching him hit the ball, listening to him hit the ball, he tells great golf stories.”
Manning, who helped lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl 50 title, should be able to glean some information about the Muirfield Village course from Woods.
The 79-time PGA Tour winner last played in the Memorial Tournament in 2015, but he has won the event five times — most recently in 2012.
Manning has played with other top-tier golfers in the past. He has paired up with three-time major winner Jordan Spieth at previous Pebble Beach Pro-Ams.
