Over the weekend, Crooked Stick Golf Club hosted the BMW Championship in suburban Indianapolis. Dustin Johnson won the third leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs by three strokes, playing 23-under for the weekend.
After the final putt, the golf world moved on from Crooked Stick. Well, everyone except for Peyton Manning.
Manning, a member of the club, played for the Indianapolis Colts from 1998-2011. He sent a letter to the Crooked Stick staff thanking them for their efforts in hosting the tournament. WISH-TV sports director Anthony Calhoun posted the note, printed on Crooked Stick letterhead.

Seeing the Sheriff shouting out "people behind the scenes" makes Jeff Saturday smile. And of course, the Papa John's and Budweiser plugs are loud subtleties.
For the record, Manning was in Denver for Thursday night's Broncos-Panthers game, in Bristol for Saturday night's Tennessee-Virginia Tech game and in Dallas for Sunday's Giants-Cowboys game. So no, he didn't see any golf in person, but the reigning Super Bowl champion still managed to thank the course for its hard work in his absence.
