Bryson and Rodgers take down Mickelson and Brady

Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers won the fourth edition of The Match on Tuesday night. The fourth edition of The Match belongs to Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers.

DeChambeau and the Green Bay Packers quarterback flew ahead on the back nine on Tuesday night at The Reserve at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana, to claim the charity match play event over Phil Mickelson and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady 3 and 2.

Rodgers ended the event on the 16th hole with a clutch birdie putt, one of several he made throughout the day.

Mickelson now boasts a 2-2 record in The Match, which started as a head-to-head bout between him and Tiger Woods. Brady has now lost twice, both alongside Mickelson.

“Phil’s 2-0 without me, and 0-2 with me,” Brady said. “So I feel like I have a lot of work to do with my golf game.”

In total, the foursome raised $2.6 million for various charities throughout the day.

Former President Barack Obama called into The Match just in time for the third hole of the day, and witnessed an incredible shot off the tee from Brady.

Brady, on a short par-4, hit a nearly 400-yard drive and put himself within about 10 feet from the cup to set up an eagle putt for Mickelson.

DeChambeau also drove the green, and actually did so with a 3-wood instead of a driver.

Mickelson ended up missing the eagle putt, but Rodgers missed their eagle putt past the hole — setting up a comeback putt that DeChambeau couldn’t sink either. That gave Brady and Mickelson the win, which evened the match back up.

Before Obama left the broadcast, Larry Fitzgerald tried to get him to commit to play in a future edition of The Match.

The former president, though, seemed hesitant — mainly due to the jokes that would be made at his expense on social media.

“If Chuck does it one more time and survives, then maybe I’ll have a little more gumption to get out there and try it myself,” Obama said before signing off.

Rodgers broke out his best Kevin Na impression when he walked in his par putt on the fourth hole. He and DeChambeau fell to Mickelson and Brady on that one, though, giving the duo their first lead of the match.
