The Los Angeles Chargers are in the middle of their offseason training, and they’re trying to keep things light. One way that’s helped is by holding a golf tournament on Thursday, April 12th at Topanga Canyon Golf Course in Agoura Hills.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Justin Herbert enjoys golf nearly as much as he enjoys quarterbacking. Almost.
He described it as “relaxing.”
But at 5:30 a.m. in July, Herbert and around a dozen of his Los Angeles Chargers teammates traveled to Herbert’s hometown of Eugene, Oregon, to compete in the first annual Justin Herbert Invitational on July 8 at Shadow Hills Country Club. That began after Herbert and his Chargers colleagues had completed the 18 holes they had begun at 5:30 a.m. that morning.
“Are you exhausted?” I inquired of Herbert. He said, “Never.”
He drove the cart back to the tee box after each foursome finished the 10th hole. The majority of the time, he drove the ball 300 yards through the woods. It was a scramble style, so after hitting his drives, he let the rest of the players take over.

Former Oregon kicker Aidan Schneider and former Ducks long snapper Devin Melendez were among his initial quartet, with Melendez claiming to have had the greatest seat in the house throughout his collegiate career: on the sidelines, never having to shower.
Herbert seemed to be content and at ease. His father, Marc, and elder brother, Mitchell, all competed in the tournament, and Justin’s mother, Holly, acted as the event’s hostess, regaling spectators with tales about her son, including how he believed he acquired his height from drinking milk rather than from his parents, who are also tall.
Patrick, Herbert’s younger brother and a tight end with the Ducks, sat back and took it all in.
His Chargers colleagues came in full form, including Pro Bowl wide receiver Keenan Allen, who had 100 receptions for 992 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Allen demonstrated his versatility by performing an impromptu solo to a Jason Mraz tune (yes, that Jason Mraz).

The event also included third-year defensive lineman Jerry Tillery, a first-round selection of the Chargers in 2019, and offensive tackle Storm Norton, who wore a man bun. Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts (who starred with both the Chargers and Oregon) and former Oregon quarterback Joey Harrington, the No. 3 pick in the 2002 NFL draft who played seven seasons with the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons, and New Orleans Saints, joined Chargers kicker Michael Badgley and fullback Gabe Nabers.
Food trucks serving catfish (a Herbert favorite) and fried chicken were stationed all over the course. It was outstanding for a first-time event, similar to Herbert’s first season, when he completed 66.6 percent of his throws for 4,336 yards and an NFL rookie record 31 touchdown passes.
All of the profits went to Kidsports, a Eugene-based charity where Herbert grew up playing football, baseball, basketball, and anything else the group came up with.
He stated, “Kidsports meant the world to me.” “It’s all in the name of a great cause.”
There was music… Kelley James, a multi-talented musician, heckled the foursomes with well-researched freestyle rap lyrics before performing at the after party. He persuaded the audience to sing “Sweet Caroline,” a popular Eugene bar song.
But James was unable to persuade Herbert to join in. He was either too bashful or didn’t know what to say.
It was a celebratory atmosphere that provided a nice break before the start of training camp on July 28 under first-year head coach Brandon Staley.
