Golf: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tees it up with Jordan Spieth at Augusta

Washington (AFP) - New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady offered another glimpse of his charmed life on Monday when he posted a picture of himself playing at Augusta National with former 2015 US Masters champion Jordan Spieth on Instagram.

The post was later removed from Brady's account, but not before the picture of the five-time Super Bowl winning quarterback with Spieth, Augusta National member Jimmy Dunne and Kevin Plank, chief executive of apparel manufacturer Under Armour, was captured by a multitude of media outlets.

"Trying to beat @jordanspieth in golf is like trying to arm wrestle @therock," wrote Brady, who authored the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history in February, leading the Patriots from a 28-3 deficit to a 34-28 overtime triumph over the Atlanta Falcons.

The photo showed the foursome on Hogan's Bridge at Augusta National's 12th hole.

That's where Spieth's hopes of winning a second straight green jacket foundered last year with a quadruple bogey.

Spieth has said all year the memory of that collapse won't haunt him when he again tackles the first Major of the year.

The US Masters tees off at Augusta next week.
