This might be the best way for Peyton Manning to get over the Super Bowl — a week at Pebble Beach.
Manning was a late entry to play in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which starts Thursday. He will be the amateur partner for Scott Langley. Also playing in their group is Greg Owen and Harris Barton, who played for the San Francisco 49ers.
Seattle's defense overwhelmed Manning and the Denver Broncos in a 43-8 win on Sunday to give the Seahawks their first Super Bowl title.
Manning last played in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 2009 with Webb Simpson.
He is one of four NFL quarterbacks in the field, joining Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Alex Smith.
