Many of the amateur competitors at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am were probably intrigued about which number would be awarded to a particular star NFL quarterback on the field.
No, not number 12. Aaron Rodgers has worn the same jersey throughout his soon-to-be Hall of Fame career with the Green Bay Packers and now the New York Jets.
Instead, we're referring to the number of handicap strokes he would receive in the pro-am portion of the competition.
Why is Rodgers' handicap of such importance to the field? Not only will the four-time NFL MVP face criticism for winning the pro-am contest with Ben Silverman a year ago,
but Rodgers, who has a low single-digit handicap, received an eye-popping 10 shots during each of the event's three rounds.
This year will be significantly different, as Rodgers will play the two-round pro-am with a handicap of four.
Rodgers entered last year's competition with a 3.0 GHIN index, so the seven-stroke adjustment did not sit well with the rest of the field.
"Aaron Rodgers does not count. Keith Mitchell, who finished fourth in the pro-am alongside Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen last year, commented after the fourth round, "His handicap was crap."
