Tom Brady tees it up

It is official: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s shoulder, fingers, and ribs have healed enough for him to play. Well, to play golf, anyway.

Brady yesterday teed off in the first round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Playing with pro Steve Marino, Brady’s tandem is tied for 92d overall. They’re tied with, among others, Jason Gore and Don Cheadle.

Brady made SportsCenter this morning for one wild shot. He smoked an iron from the fairway that landed in the left rough, bounced off a hill, and rolled to within about five feet. Then he missed the putt. Does that count toward the Patriots’ red-zone problems?
