Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson barely fell to Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods in "The Match: Champions for Charity" on Sunday, but Brady was the star.

The Tampa Bay quarterback struggled early on, but picked his play up as the match went on, including holing out from over 100 yards for birdie on the par-5 seventh hole. But, as Brady picked his ball up from the hole his pants ripped, which went viral on the internet and Brady was forced to put on a replacement pair.

A few days after the match, Brady reflected via Instagram with some lessons learned.

They were: 1. Amazing what happens when groups of people come together for the common good.
2. Peyton is still as clutch as ever. --
3. I did not escape the inclement weather...heavy stuff...ALL DAY.
4. I shouldn’t wear the same pants to golf that I wear to church. --
5. As great as @philmickelson is as a golfer, he is a better man, coach and teammate and potentially has the best calves on the PGA Tour.
6. I really enjoy golf...at halftime of football games we get checked for concussions, in golf, you get refreshments.
7. It was nice to be the young guy again. ----
8. @tigerwoods was a great host and champion, and I was especially thankful he missed that putt on the 7th hole...had he made it, I would have just went home. --
9. I’m sticking to my day job --
