Still all the hype warranted putting Manziel on the cover of the latest Golf Digest. In an interview, he says is about a 7-8 handicap.
“If I’m playing in a tournament, I’m probably going to shoot somewhere between 79 and 84. My goal every time is to break 80. I’m about a 7- or 8-handicap right now.”
Manziel is the latest in a series of celebrity covers for Golf Digest. Previously this year, the magazine has featured Pauline Gretzky (who is engaged to Dustin Johnson) and Jimmy Fallon (who has some vague awareness that golf exists).
When Gretzky’s daughter made the cover, wearing not much, it caused a bit of a stir since real LPGA golfers rarely get featured. Since then Michelle Wie has been on the cover.
