Patrick Mahomes, Steph Curry and Miles Teller take on Tahoe | Rogers Report
Hello friends and welcome to a BONUS edition of the Rogers Report. I wanted to write all about the athletes, actors and celebrities I saw at the American Century Championship a few weeks ago, so let’s get to it.
First thing’s first. The folks in the field at the American Century Championship are not only good at their own craft, but they’re pretty good golfers, too. Check out these swings.
We’ve known that Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes are good golfers. I’ve got to say I was most surprised by Nick Jonas’ move. Check out that speedy swing! Maybe he’s been following the Bryson DeChambeau training plan in between tours. Who is to say? Next up we’ve got Josh Allen absolutely striping the ball at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
One of my favorite people to see at this event is Steph Curry. Not only is he a superb golfer, but he brings great energy to the course. Last year, he was blasting Olivia Rodrigo tunes in between shots. This year, he celebrated a long drive in hilarious fashion.
I’m not quite sure what we’d call that celebration, but I’m into it. Then my co-worker, Darren, caught up with Curry right after the shot to discuss how he got into the game and more. Check it out:
Writing about Justin Timberlake is always sentimental for me because I grew up listening to his music (read: my favorite song during my senior year of high school was Mirrors). This is my fourth year working in golf and I don’t think I’ll ever get over how cool it is to watch non-golf celebrities just hang out on the course during a round. It’s a true “They’re just like us!” moment, you know, except for the fact that they are international superstars.
I’m going to be very honest with you all. I have not seen the new Top Gun movie. I have, however, seen the original and I’m a fan of Miles Teller. Maybe I’ll see it this week! But this is all to say that just because I haven’t seen the movie doesn’t mean I wasn’t a little starstruck watching Miles Teller, AKA Rooster, tee it up in Tahoe.
I was nervous to say hi to Teller, but it was pretty clear he was nervous to tee it up as well. He took a mulligan on the 17th hole and was definitely a little more relaxed the second time around.
I always look forward to the American Century Championship because it’s completely different from any other event I attend throughout the year. It’s exciting to see the pros at Tour events and majors, but this is a unique type of exciting. I get a first-row seat to some of the best athletes and performers in the world at one of my favorite places in the world. Here are a few of my biggest “pinch me” moments from the week.
