Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen gave his offensive linemen new golf clubs, lessons for Christmas
There were many who insisted Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen would go broke when the long-suffering franchise picked him with the seventh selection in the 2018 draft.
Critics belittled his footwork, insisting that he make bad decisions, and saying his raw talent would not be enough to make him a competent NFL leader.
The critics were wrong. Allen has worked tirelessly on the details and has since grown into one of the league's elite players - lifting the bills to their first AFC East title in 25 seasons. The Wyoming product recently entered its first Pro Bowl and is the first player in NFL history to record at least 4,000 passes, more than 30 passes, and at least eight rushing scores in one season. And the bills still have two games on their schedule.
For anyone who grew up in California, taking lessons in healthy footwork and mental discipline seemed like the perfect Christmas present to show off to the big bodies that protect him each week.
According to an article by veteran Buffalo News reporter Jay Skurski, the signal caller gave his offensive linemen a very special Christmas present in the form of custom-made golf clubs - Callaway Mavrik blades and irons, an Odyssey putter and an Ogio golf bag.
Each of the bags was available in the team's red and blue colors and personalized with the player's name and number. He also taught the Head Pro at Crag Burn Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones, which is less than 30 minutes east of Buffalo and only eight miles from the team's stadium in Orchard Park.

"That's really great. Obviously, gifts are extremely difficult to buy for people who basically already have everything," Allen told Skurski. "I've talked to them and none of them had their own golf clubs. A lot of these guys may not even have done it.
“To give them the opportunity to broaden their horizons, try something new and just hang out on the golf course and get away from football a bit in the off-season. I love doing this, and hopefully one or two of them - or maybe even all of them, record the game and enjoy it as much as I do. "
