A piece of humble pie
When Brandon Weeden competes with his teammates, he’s often served a piece of humble pie.
Not his football teammates, his golf teammates.
Oklahoma State’s All-Big 12 quarterback is a walk-on for the Cowboys golf team and Weeden has gained a greater respect for the talent of Kevin Tway, Peter Uihlein and the rest of the OSU golf squad during his limited time as a member of the team.
“It brings a new light to it,” Weeden said. “You know they are good but you really don’t appreciate it until you play along with them, they are unreal. There are 13 of them and all 13 can play.”
Weeden has enjoyed the experience but, make no mistake, football has remained priority No. 1.
“Football is first so I haven’t had the chance to play many rounds,” Weeden said. “It’s kind of nine-hole increments if I’m even able to play. It’s a lot of practicing on my own and trying to get better. I’m getting better, when you play at Karsten it kind of forces you get it better.”
After feeling like the bottom man on the totem pole for a while, Weeden decided to even out the playing field a few weeks before spring football began.
“To balance it out, I brought a football to Karsten Creek the other day and threw it around with them,” Weeden said. “It made me feel a lot better about my golf game.
“I have to keep telling myself, I’m a quarterback, not a golfer.”
