Patriots coach Bill Belichick headed to Pebble Beach a few days after losing Super Bowl XLVI, and he came across as surprisingly upbeat in a TV appearance there on Saturday.
“It’s a tough loss, a tough couple days, but Pebble Beach is a great spot to take your mind off some of the troubles we had,” Belichick said on CBS.
Seated next to his friend Nick Saban, the head coach at Alabama, Belichick was enjoying himself.
“It’s awesome,” Belichick said. “It’s great to spend time with Nick and the pros here. Just to be out here at Pebble Beach.”
Although Belichick surely hasn’t played any golf since the lockout ended, he’s apparently playing pretty well at Pebble Beach. He and partner Ricky Barnes are in seventh place in the pro-am.
