Aaron Rodgers hits his tee shot on the 15th hole during the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament Sunday. Rodgers won the event with golfer Ben Silverman.

NFL media and fans continue to speculate where Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will throw for his $59.5 million dough next season, but this weekend he was putting for it.

Sunday, he and and professional golfing partner Ben Silverman won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, defeating Peter Malnati and Don Colleran by a stroke, finishing 26-under par.

“It's really significant,” Rodgers said after winning the, pro-am portion of the event. “It's always been on my bucket list.”

Rodgers, playing off a 10 handicap, said he had not played golf since training camp until last Monday.

For somebody who claims to not spend much time playing golf, Rodgers continues to do OK in celebrity golf events.

Rodgers previously won The Match IV with Bryson DeChambeau against Phil Mickelson and recently retired quarterback Tom Brady in 2021.

Last year, he and Brady defeated Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Bills quarterback Josh Allen.

Rodgers, PGA golfer Max Homa trade shots

Rodgers joked on Saturday that former playing partner Max Homa was keeping him from winning the event.

"He was obviously the anchor, he was holding me back from holding the trophy. He’s big time now,, Rodgers said. "He’s won six times, it's hard to even get a call back."

Homa had a hilarious response."

Raiders fans encourage Rodgers to come to Las Vegas

A tweet from Las Vegas receiver and former Packer Davante Adams earlier in the week changed betting odds on where Rodgers will be playing next year.

Raiders fans who were walking the links at Pebble Beach apparently were urging a Rodgers-Adams reunion.

Sunday, however, Silverman suggested that Rodgers should head south.
