Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been playing as the amateur partner of PGA golfer Ricky Barnes at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament this weekend. Considering the storied coach is just six days removed from a crushing Super Bowl loss, it was impressive to see him hit the links and chat with the media, but then again he did say Pebble Beach is the perfect place to help take your mind off things.
Most impressive, however, was the decision to golf in his signature sideline attire. A Pebble Beach hoodie with the sleeves cut off at the forearm is certainly a wonderful change of pace for the stuffy golf crowd, though in this case his sleeves appear to be tailored. Probably a course requirement.
Belichick and Barnes are currently in a tie for seventh place heading into today’s final round. I’m guessing his buddy Nick Saban will be cheering him on with great vigor. Here’s a clip of the two maestros chatting it up with Jim Nantz following yesterday’s round.
