Johnny Manziel Wants To Be A Pro Golfer By 40: “I Have 12 Years To Make A PGA Tour Event”

All these years later, Johnny Manziel is still relevant… sorta.

It’s been almost a decade since he won the Heisman Trophy at Texas A&M and it’s been six years since he’s taken a snap in the NFL but, he’s still one of the more interesting sports personalities today.

Recently, he joined the Green Light with Chris Long podcast to talk about life, football, and this new found passion of his. According to Manziel, he wants to be a professional golfer.

“I’m giving myself 12 years to try to play professional golf.

I’m gonna grind this out and see how good I can get and see if I can’t enter in some tournaments and see if I can’t go play professional golf eventually. I think it is a very uphill battle, but that’s what I’m setting for my goals.

I have 12 years to try and make a PGA Tour event.”

12 years? Who the hell has the kind of time to make plans like that? I guess Johnny Manziel…

To be honest, I had no idea that Manziel was a golf guy, but apparently he’s pretty good. Check out this bomb of a drive at the Scottsdale Open Pro-Am:

Apparently this wasn’t the first time Manziel channeled his inner Happy Gilmore.

In July of last year, he won a longest drive competition with a 356 yard drive. And for reference, the tour average drive is about 295 yards

Johnny Football is currently playing football in the new Fan Controlled Football league, but he basically said he’s only doing that because he has some free time right now. Hopefully, we get to see him on the tour one day taking massive swings and driving the ball 300+ yards.

If you need me I’ll be reminiscing the rest of the day of the good old days of Manziel at Texas A&M.

Simpler times…
