The sixth edition of Capital One's The Match saw Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers defeat Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen in the friendly competition between some of the NFL's best quarterbacks.

But perhaps no one on the green had more fun than Mahomes, who kept things loose while also remaining competitive. The Kansas City Chiefs star made up for Allen's shortcomings and carried his team with a number of clutch putts. He also looked more relaxed than Allen throughout the match as he enjoyed a few bottles of beer.

Some fans and pundits who were watching Wednesday's showcase had fun online highlighting Mahomes' performance.

“The Match” has gone 6 holes (halfway) so far. <br><br>Quick recap: Brady and Rodgers took the first two holes, then Mahomes opened a Coors Light. He has since carried he and Allen’s team back to a tie. 6 holes to go.

Mark Gunnels @MarkAGunnels

Mahomes just slamming Coors. That’s my quarterback.

Ryan Ballengee @RyanBallengee

When drinking while playing golf, there is absolutely a point where you're buzzed enough to play better. A buddy of mine calls it the buzzone, and Patrick Mahomes has found it.

Patrick Mahomes is living proof that beer makes you a better golfer <a href="https://t.co/Y8xXjUvxhn">pic.twitter.com/Y8xXjUvxhn</a>

Forget the scorecard. Mahomes is the winner tonight no matter how it finishes.

Mahomes also helped his team to overcome a two-shot deficit and took a brief lead when he sank a putt on the eighth hole. Allen had no choice but to admit that Mahomes was shouldering the load for their team.

Bleacher Report @BleacherReport

Count it! Mahomes drains the putt for the lead 🙌 <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/CapitalOnesTheMatch?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#CapitalOnesTheMatch</a> <a href="https://t.co/un5JHoxmQ8">pic.twitter.com/un5JHoxmQ8</a>

"His back is hurting." - Josh Allen in regards to Patrick Mahomes carrying him to a lead over Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers in The Match. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ChiefsKingdom?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ChiefsKingdom</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/KCTV5?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@KCTV5</a>

On the final hole when things were tied up, Allen came close to sinking a long putt that would've made up for his earlier struggles. But it just wasn't his day, and it opened the door for Brady and Rodgers to take the win.

Wednesday's performance may have solidified Mahomes for a spot in Capital One's The Match going forward. His candor, subtle trash talk and impressively clutch play made for an entertaining viewing experience.

However, it wouldn't be a surprise if Mahomes was playing with a different partner the next time he's on the green.
