As many professional athletes of other sports often do when their seasons are over, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will now head to the golf course.

Fresh off his Super Bowl loss, it was reported Tuesday that Manning will head to Pebble Beach as a late entry, to compete in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Manning will play with pro Scott Langley in the event, which has raised more than $110 million for charity since its’ inception in 1937. He also played the event in 2009, but he and partner Webb Simpson were cut after three rounds, finishing in 31st.

Manning warmed up at the course Wednesday with an unlikely partner. New England Patriots’ coach Bill Belichick hit the links with Manning for a practice round. Manning and the Denver Broncos beat the New England Patriots in the AFC championship this season to head to Super Bowl 48. Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady will also compete in the Pro-Am, but was not present at the practice round.

Manning is no stranger to swinging a golf club. He once shot a 77 at Augusta. He was also paired with Tiger Woods during a Pro-Am at Quail Hollow previously.
