BRYAN, Texas -- Saturday afternoon Johnny Manziel was trying to figure out how he was going to round out his foursome at the upcoming 3rd Annual Allen Open, but when he found out he needed to be back in Cleveland on Sunday after being taken by the Browns in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday, golf took a back seat.

"He's got a job now," said Texas A&M Head Football Coach Kevin Sumlin who stepped in for his former quarterback to take pictures with Texas A&M professional golfer Ryan Palmer and the participating golfers Monday morning at Miramont Country Club.

Manziel was raising money for his six year old buddy Charlie Dina of Charlie's Angels and the Charlie Dina Foundation, while Palmer was representing his charity, Birdies for Brighter Smiles.

Both charities received a portion of the $70,000 that was raised during the four person scramble along with the Allen Academy general scholarship fund.
