Josh Allen shows off at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am after pulling out of the Pro Bowl with arm injury
How’s that elbow, Josh?! Bills QB Allen shows off his golf swing and sinks a nice putt in practice at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am… after pulling out of the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games due to arm injury
Some 500 miles away from the Pro Bowl that he said he was too injured to attend, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen hit a pure wedge shot on Pebble Beach’s famed hole No. 7.
It was all part of this week’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the latest stop on the PGA Tour calendar that invites celebrities and athletes along with professional golfers out to Monterrey, California.
Allen struck a beautiful wedge shot, landing it on the near side of the green that perilously looks out on the Pacific Ocean.
He sank his putt on that hole, raising his putter and walking it in as it rolled gently into the cup.
Football fans were quick to point out the odd circumstances surrounding Allen’s appearance, considering the Bills quarterback isn’t appearing at the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games.

It may shock some NFL fans, after Allen pulled out of the Pro Bowl Games with an elbow injury
The Bills QB said he wasn’t going to appear at the watered-down, more playful weekend the NFL has set up due to an elbow injury he sustained.
In his place, Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley will be representing the AFC.
The Northern California native will be hoping that his golf game is better than his last performance of this NFL season – when the Bills fell to the Bengals in a snowy Orchard Park, NY in the AFC Divisional round.
This is Allen’s second appearance at Pebble Beach, with the QB saying last year, ‘If I can golf every day, I would. It’s my favorite thing to do.’
Allen is paired with Keith Mitchell – his partner from last year – and the pair tee off for their first round at 12:14 EST on Thursday.
He’s in a crowded field, alongside fellow quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former athletes Gareth Bale, Larry Fitzgerald, Pau Gasol, Buster Posey, and Alex Smith.
