PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Green Bay Packersquarterback Aaron Rodgers finally gets his name on the Wall of Champions behind the first tee at Pebble Beach, joining a long list that includes Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.

Rodgers and Ben Silverman of Canada held on for a 1-shot victory Sunday in the pro-am portion of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The prize is their name listed on the wall, which features pro-am winners, tournament winners, USGA champions at Pebble and more.

Last week I said Aaron Rodgers was an annoying human. 

It's sh-t like this (cheating at golf) which is an example 





Rodgers, who is listed as a 3.0 index at Green Bay Country Club in Wisconsin, was getting 10 (!) shots each day of the weather-shortened 54-hole event. He put them to good use, taking first place with Canadian pro Ben Silverman at 26 under. The four-time NFL MVP had claimed he had played only one round since training camp, which took place last Monday at Sherwood Country Club where he shot 86. He followed that with a practice round on Tuesday at Cypress Point (NBD), and then "something clicked" at Spyglass on Thursday. Naturally, the 3.0 version of No. 12 showed up and showed out.

Allen made sure to give Rodgers some crap, too, not for his handicap but for the fact the tournament only went three rounds. Rodgers responded by saying his name would be on the Wall of Champions near Pebble's first tee for a "long time." He's not wrong, but the handicap police are officially on to him. Shades of Larry Fitz.
