Brandon Weeden Is Better Than You At Sports

With the NFL season kicking off this week, every major media outlet is airing football-themed segments, including the Golf Channel. Todd Lewis visited with Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to talk about his winding career path through the baseball minor leagues to Oklahoma State to Cleveland (you can watch the video here). Weeden's baseball gifts, while not big-league level, were already well-known. But the spot on Golf Channel shed some light on another sport where he's become well above-average.

In college, Weeden was asked to join the Cowboys golf team. OSU has perhaps the strongest program in the country, consistently boasting the top recruits and sending players onto the PGA Tour (such as Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan). Weeden never played in the top five on the team, but just being good enough for consideration is better than 95 percent of golfers in the world. It's still an amazing accomplishment, especially considering Weeden never picked up a club until late in his life. He claims that he shot an 89 the first time ever played -- a pretty unbelievable score for someone out there chopping it up on their first loop through. Comparable results for his first ever NFL game would be a welcome sight.
