Amidst his comeback after such a short retirement, American golfer Paige Spiranac has taken a dig at Brady. Spiranac said on her Twitter profile with approximately 500k followers that the only thing shorter than Tom Brady’s retirement was ‘Greg Norman’s lead in the 96 masters’.

This is in reference to when Australian golfer Greg Norman lost a six-shot lead in the final round of the Masters’ golf tournament on April 14th 1986. Paige Spiranac in a sarcastic tone has taken a dig at Tom Brady’s short retirement period by comparing it to Norman’s long time in the lead.

These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady said. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.”
