SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — It’s often been said that his innate ability to win trumps his football skills. Well, Heisman-winning quarterback Tim Tebow was up to his old tricks during Wednesday’s pro-am events at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Maybe Tebow’s NFL career didn’t pan out, but he’s still got some mojo. Tebow won the Phoenix Suns Charities Shot at Glory, where a number of familiar faces competed on the 16th hole to land a tee shot closest to the cup.

With former Florida and current Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer by his side, Tebow nailed a shot 11 feet, 3 inches from the hole.
