Brady’s troll of Aaron Rodgers ahead of golf match is ruthless initially appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Tom Brady the Twitter troll has returned.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is teaming up with PGA champion Phil Mickelson for an additional installment of “The Match,” this time squaring off towards Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and golfer Bryson DeChambeau for a charity golf tournament in July.

Green Bay by no means acquired nearer than 5 factors within the 31-26 loss, and Brady’s tweet pours a lot of salt in that wound.
TB12 additionally ribbed Rodgers and DeChambeau on Instagram, referring to the previous as a “Jeopardy host” and the latter as a “scientist” whereas reminding everybody that he and Mickelson are each current champions.

Even Koepka himself acquired into the motion to throw shade at DeChambeau and Rodgers, with Mickelson piling on.

UPDATE (3:45 p.m. ET): DeChambeau has made his rebuttal. Here’s the somewhat lame Deflategate joke the golfer tweeted in Brady’s course:
