Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes will compete in The Match in late June
By Matt Conner
Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce will be two of the featured four stars in this year’s golf exhibition, The Match, held on June 29.
For the last five years or so, golf enthusiasts have enjoyed watching The Match, an exhibition featuring four celebrities competing against each other in a match play contest. This year, the quartet will feature two familiar faces to Chiefs Kingdom with quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce.
Mahomes and Kelce will be one pair facing off against a pair of Golden State Warriors stars, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Mahomes has been involved with The Match before—almost a full year ago at this time. Last April, the Match featured four NFL quarterbacks against each other with a pairing of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers against Josh Allen and Mahomes. Rodgers sunk the winning putt as he and Brady won by a single point.
The Match was first derived back in 2018 and featured professional golfers competing for a big money prize of $9 million featuring two competitors: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. From there, Brady and Peyton Manning were added to the original two for a charity version and the event has rotated figures since then.
This summer’s event, sponsored by Capital One, will be held on June 29 at The Wynn in Las Vegas, Nevada.
