Phil Mickelson has high praise for Peyton Manning’s trash-talking skills.
The golf star is teaming up with Tom Brady to play the former Broncos and Colts star and Tiger Woods in a Sunday match for charity during the coronavirus pandemic. It sounds like he’s excited to trade some verbal shots with the retired NFL legend. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“Peyton is one of the best smack talkers, and the great thing about Peyton is that when he gives you a little jab, he does it in a way, that is funny that doesn’t come across as an attack. So, it elicits a response that’s not defensive, but actually laughter,” Mickelson explained during a recent ESPN appearance about his upcoming opponent and two-time Super Bowl champion.

Obviously, Mickelson is 100% correct on this one. Manning is known for being one of the most entertaining guys in the history of sports.
The dude is an electric factory. All he knows how to do is move the needle and entertain people. Let’s not forget, he recently went ultra-viral for roasting Tom Brady to his face ahead of this golf match.
