SJ - March 1, 2021

Johnny Manziel is no longer trying to make a return to the NFL.  After stints in the CFL and AAF, he's put his football career in the rearview.  The 28-year-old is currently playing in the Fan Controlled Football league, but he has aspirations in a completely different sport.

During an appearance on the podcast "Green Light with Chris Long," Manziel revealed that he want to be a professional golfer.  He's set a goal for himself of making a PGA Tour event in the next 12 years.

From Larry Brown Sports:

Manziel was a guest on “Green Light with Chris Long” for a podcast episode that was published on Feb. 19. In the episode, Manziel told Long that he aspires to play pro golf.

Manziel is giving himself 12 years to see if he can earn a spot in a PGA Tour event.

“I’m giving myself 12 years to try to play professional golf,” Manziel told Long via The Spun. “I’m gonna grind this out and see how good I can get and see if I can’t enter some tournaments and see if I can’t go play professional golf eventually. 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.”

Johnny Golf doesn't have the same ring to it as Johnny Football, but it's definitely something we can get used to.  How much fun is it going to be to watch Johnny Golf miss tee times and show up to events hung over?
