Remember Johnny Manziel? Former Heisman winner says he's serious about becoming a PGA Tour player

0

While Johnny Manziel made a brief return to the football field (sort of) in the Fan Controlled Football league, a career in professional football is a thing of Manziel’s past.

But he hasn’t given up on a career in pro sports.

Manziel, who last played in the NFL in 2015, is moving on from football to pursue a career in professional golf. Manziel has spent much of his time playing golf in Arizona over the past two years. And in a podcast appearance with former NFL player Chris Long, Manziel said that he hopes to break into pro golf by the time he turns 40.

“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 try and go play professional golf eventually,” Manziel said on the “Green Light with Chris Long” podcast. “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.”

According to Manziel, he’s currently around a scratch golfer. But there’s a big difference between a really good amateur golfer and an actual PGA Tour pro. So, the 28-year-old is giving himself 12 years to make that jump.

As for football, Manziel also acknowledged that he is no longer the player he used to be. It’s all about golf now.
