Americans are so desperate for sports to return, a record breaking 5.8 million viewers tuned in to watch a charity golf event.

Viewers savaged Tom Brady’s sorry golf game on Twitter.

But that wasn’t the only thing he had to be embarrassed about during this charity match.

After “The Match” Tom Brady admitted he won’t be giving up his day job anytime soon.

Aside from one lucky birdie shot . . .

. . . that looks damn impressive if you hadn’t watched the rest of the game – the NFL quarterback had a rough day on the links.

Viewers savaged him on Twitter.

Including some trolling by the head coach of his new rivals.

But somehow, his lackluster golf game wasn’t the most embarrassing part of the day for Brady.

Moments after Brady’s best shot of the day, Brady bent over in front of the camera to reveal a split in the seat of his pants.

Brady was good natured about it – joking, “Well, there’s so much torque in that swing.”

Right . . .

Afterwards, Brady posted “a few lessons” he learned from the golf tournament on social media.

There he decided to blame the wardrobe malfunction on wearing “the same pants to golf that I wear to church.”

I learned a few lessons from this past weekend’s golf tournament with @philmickelson @tigerwoods and #Peyton…I had a lot of fun and grateful to be part of an event that raised a lot of money for Covid relief: 1. Amazing what happens when groups of people come together for the common good. 2. Peyton is still as clutch as ever. 💯 3. I did not escape the inclement weather…heavy stuff…ALL DAY. 4. I shouldn’t wear the same pants to golf that I wear to church. 🤬 5. As great as @philmickelson is as a golfer, he is a better man, coach and teammate and potentially has the best calves on the PGA Tour. 6. I really enjoy golf…at halftime of football games we get checked for concussions, in golf, you get refreshments. 7. It was nice to be the young guy again. 👍🏼 8. @tigerwoods was a great host and champion, and I was especially thankful he missed that putt on the 7th hole…had he made it, I would have just went home. 😂 9. I’m sticking to my day job 🏈

Sounds like Brady learned the wrong lesson there to be honest.

The real lesson, Tom, is that’s why dudes shouldn’t wear tight pants.

Next time, don’t let Gisele pick out a pair of skinny jeans for you and you won’t have these kind of problems.

What lessons did you take away from “The Match” and Brady’s embarrassing day?
