Tom Brady/Aaron Rodgers vs. Patrick Mahomes/Josh Allen in The Match

An all-quarterback version of The Match is scheduled June 1 featuring Tom Brady/Aaron Rodgers vs Josh Allen/Patrick Mahomes.

BOSTON, Mass – An all-quarterback version of The Match is coming June 1.

Tom Brady announced on Twitter that he will be pairing up with Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers in The Match on June 1. The two will square off against Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.

Though the battle won’t feature any actual PGA Tour golfers, it’s sure to be entertaining — considering four of the last five league MVPs will be on the course together. The trash talk started instantly from all sides, too.

An all-quarterback version of The Match is coming June 1.

The Match will be a 12-hole exhibition battle at the Wynn Las Vegas on June 1. So far, The Match has raised nearly $33 million for charity.

Rodgers and Brady competed last year against each other while paired up with Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau. This time, though, will be the first of the six versions of The Match without a single PGA Tour golfer.

Mahomes and Allen are decent golfers themselves, however, and should be able to hold their own against the two veteran quarterbacks. Allen played in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am in February, and Mahomes played in last year’s American Century Championship celebrity tournament. Allen is reportedly a 9.0 handicap, and Mahomes is a 7.7 handicap.
