Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady struggled to start Capital One's "The Match: Champions for Charity" on Sunday afternoon, and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton hopes it translates to the football field:

I'm liking this Florida @TomBrady right now. #TNT

Payton was far from the only one throwing shade Brady's way on Twitter:

Poor Tom Brady. If he wants back in to this game of golf, he’s gonna have to pick the ball up and throw it #TheMatch

Tom has to be a couple seconds away from a club toss here...

Brady was paired with Phil Mickelson against fellow future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods. The 18-hole matchplay competition is for COVID-19 relief.

Brady departed the New England Patriots for a two-year contract with the Buccaneers during free agency in late March.

The new-look Bucs will open their 2020 campaign against Payton's Saints in New Orleans on Sept. 13. The NFC South foes will square off again in Tampa on Nov. 8.
