Peterson does celebrity golf tourney again

Posted by Darren Urban on July 15, 2015 – 8:08 am

The American Century Celebrity golf tournament has been a place where the Cardinals have been well-represented over the past few years. Ken Whisenhunt was a regular there when he was head coach, and quarterback Carson Palmer has also played there (not this week though, not with ACL rehab and his time in San Diego this week working out with John Brown, Drew Stanton, Troy Niklas and Ifeanyi Momah.) Patrick Peterson has also played before, and this year, he’s officially landed in Lake Tahoe.

Clearly, Peterson has been working on his game:

Peterson was a minus-28 last year — which sounds like a good score, except that the tournament is scored with the modified Stableford system, meaning you get points for good holes. Former NFL QB Mark Rypien won the tourney last year at Plus-76.

    That a boy PP!
    You gotta come play up here in Flag! Shoot in the 70’s no matter your score!

    Darren,
    The one thing I noticed was that PP looks in great shape- he seems to have dropped some heft.
    Pro football players are great at what they do-play football. Except for QBs, football players are not what I would call great athletes as in put a tennis racquet in their hand, or a golf club, or a baseball bat, etc.
    Being a football player doesn’t translate into other sports such as Larry with a baseball bat or PP with a golf club.

    “”Some”” diversity to take your mind off serious work ethic occasionally is good for a healthy mind. I, for one, do not live vicariously through ostentatious Hollywood type personal promotion of travels, expensive car collections, and hanging with actors, etc. It would be good to see less of this and just wait for football related things. ((Acknowledged; some fans love it.))

    Yep, as for PP, I remain skeptical of continual promises that have yet to demonstrate that the draft position and ludicrous contract are indeed deserving. So far…? I want him to return to his rookie performance.

    Diversity or distractions? We need to continue this winning path and perhaps make it to the big game in February…it would be nice to see PP make a SIGNIFICANT contribution toward this goal… Be well Card’s Fans…

    Most elite football players cross train, doing other sports to keep in shape and a few are even good enough that they could have dual careers (like Bo Jackson did). When you have the athleticism of Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson, Russell Wilson, etc., it’s usually because you have been doing multiple sports your entire life and are athletically gifted. Golf is a very mental game and in order to be a scratch golfer you have to be a bit sharper than a sack of hair, disciplined, and focused, all of which translates into making a better football player!
    I love seeing our players doing other sports whether it’s MMA, golf, baseball, etc. because I know they are working at their craft from a different direction and aren’t kicking back on the couch getting fat on nachos while criticizing others who are staying active! Most of the NFL players have charity athletic events and I love to read about these events and see something positive reported on rather than the latest negative update on the “dirty deeds”.
    PP is looking terrific and if you pay attention to the guys on the PGA tour, they stay in pretty good shape! I bet even BA would agree that playing golf helps keep him young and mentally sharp.
