Few people are allowed to have their cell phones on the grounds at Augusta National, but Jimmy Dunne is one.
Dunne, a member of the club and vice chairman of Piper Sandler financial services, spent part of Saturday’s 78-minute weather delay by FaceTiming his pal Tom Brady when Dunne noticed Tony Finau walk by.
“Somebody wants to talk to you,” Dunne told Finau inside the caddie headquarters near the practice range.
Tony Finau talked to Tom Brady during Saturday’s rain delay.
“So I grabbed his phone and picked it up,” Tony said. “That was a pleasant surprise.”
Brady heckled Finau about Augusta National’s decision to halt play, saying, “In the NFL, when it rains, we don’t stop.”
Finau confessed to the reigning Super Bowl champion that golfers probably aren’t as tough as football players.
“We had a good laugh about that,” Finau said. “He was obviously watching, and that was cool he was following.”
Finau carded a 73 on Saturday and enters the final round eight shots behind leader Hideki Matsuyama.
When asked if Brady tried to recruit Finau to come play for Tampa Bay, the 6-foot-4-inch golfer said, “He’s got plenty of weapons over there in Tampa. They’re not going to need me.”
