Peyton Manning coaches teammates on the links as preparation for fall

Peyton Manning isn’t the NFL’s only five-time Most Valuable Player for nothing.

Peyton’s a perfectionist, Manning’s meticulous; his astounding attention to detail is the reason he’s excelled in the football world.

Anyone that’s witnessed the All-Pro quarterback in action over the last two seasons — over the course of his illustrious career, really — knows this is the case.

Since joining up in the Mile High City in 2012, Manning’s assumed the leadership role on and off the field, conducting offseason workouts with receivers to help better chemistry and timing.

But, there are limitations to the amount of time he and teammates can spend together on the practice fields, which is why he’s taken to the golf course to build that all-important rapport with fellow Denver Broncos players. Especially newcomers.

This year he took Montee Ball, and rookies Cody Latimer and Michael Schofield out on the links despite the youngsters’ relative inexperience on the golf course. Manning coached up the young men, teaching them how to improve their swings all while preparing them to take his ridicule and attention to detail when the football season eventually arrives in fall.
