The Vikings Foundation Golf Championship 2022

Cuper started 79 of the 90 regular season games played for the Broncos from 2006-13. He’s spent the past three seasons helping Denver’s offensive line under Mike Manshak, a Hall of Fame guard who was coach of Hutchinson in Tennessee.

“I met Coach Cooper that day at the hotel,” Hutchinson said. “We were discussing normal things, as we usually do. … We’re both former players, playing in a different era.” “It’s really a lot of complaining, just talking about how things used to be and kids these days don’t know what it looks like. Every generation does the same thing.

“He’s had the opportunity to train under Mike Manshak…so everything Cooper has learned…I think he knows the way to do it, so I’m excited to see what he has in store,” Hutchinson added.

Hutchinson said he’s watched a lot of golf lately, especially the major tournaments, but has come to the conclusion that he’s not playing or training enough to “really be good.”

This change in expectations added to his fun.

“You get older, and you think you’re getting wiser, and you say, ‘Well, how can you be so great at something you don’t do often?'” “So I stopped trying to worry about it,” Hutchinson said. “I’m just trying to get good shots. I don’t need to put them together. I don’t need to win a hole on my own. That’s why in scrambles and tournaments like this, the look is very forgiving. You leave here feeling good about yourself because you’re not chasing your ball everywhere because you’re using a shot.” good from someone else, so you kind of reinforce yourself.”

Steve Jordan flew from Arizona to participate for the second year in a row.

The previous tight finish enjoyed a reunion with teammates such as fellow Vikings Ring of Honor member Joey Browner, as well as players who followed. Jordan described his golf game as “decent at times”.

“The only thing that goes with it is that I’m inconsistent, but I really enjoy it, so it’s cool,” Jordan said. “I know over the years that the Vikings have done a lot in the community, so this is a chance for us to come together and raise some money, have some fun and generate more community involvement. This is a win, a win, a win.”

Linebacker Ed McDaniel readily admitted, “I’m a terrible golfer, but you get out of the house for four or five hours, and you might as well enjoy yourself.”

The broader goal of the day wasn’t as lost in McDaniel as some of his golf balls.

“We all have to give back,” McDaniel said. “Someone gave it to me. I was lucky enough to play in college and then with the Vikings for 10 years and I’m still lucky.” “If we don’t help the next generation, if we don’t help someone behind us, where will we be?”
