Three members of the famous Manning sporting dynasty been spotted enjoying some family time as they took to the golf course in Northern Ireland.

American football star Eli Manning – who played for 16 seasons with the New York Giants – shared a snap alongside older brother and Indianapolis Colts legend Peyton Manning and television personality Cooper Manning.

The trio hit the green at Royal County Down on Wednesday afternoon, seemingly part of a visit to a number of courses around the UK after they enjoyed some time at St. Andrews earlier in the week.

Captioning the photo, the younger Manning brother wrote: “Awesome day with the brothers at Royal County Down. I went low, just saying.”

The Mannings are widely considered one of the most successful American football dynasties, with various members having star careers in the industry.
