SEE IT: T.J. Oshie outdrives Patrick Mahomes on the golf course originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
For the most part, it’s hard to compare and contrast the skills of T.J. Oshie and Patrick Mahomes. Oshie probably can’t throw a football 60 yards with ease or complete a no-look pass, but Mahomes also probably can’t dice up defenders on the ice and find the back of the net.
We’ll keep it at *probably* for both because it’s never smart to fully doubt top-class athletes.
However, where the two can go head-to-head is on the golf course, which is exactly what is taking place at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe this week as both are participating
So far, the advantage goes to Oshie in terms of driving the ball. The Capitals star blasted one 367 yards in the Long Drive Competition, besting Mahomes’ 347 yards.
Maybe it’s the years of building up arm and wrist strength with a slapshot that helped Oshie get the edge this time around. But, it’s now safe to say that T.J. Oshie is better than Patrick Mahomes…at driving the golf ball.
