There has been a story swirling around the Internet that Peyton Manning was arrested for cocaine possession in Nashville. That was true, but it was not the Peyton Manning.
The Peyton Manning spent the past couple days giving the commencement speech at the University of Virginia and then out on the links with his brother, Eli, and his dad, Archie. They even ran into a couple of the LPGA Tour’s biggest stars, Irene Cho and Morgan Pressel:

That’s the Mannings playing Pinehurst No.2, the legendary North Carolina course hailed as “America’s St. Andrews” which will host both the 2014 Men’s and Women’s U.S. Opens.
Interestingly enough, in getting on the course, the Mannings accomplished something that not even six-time U.S. Open runner-up and five-time major champion Phil Mickelson couldn’t do: get a tee time at Pinehurst.
