You can bet the Maravilla Scottsdale senior community is buzzing with Aaron Rodgers’ talk today.
It’s not every day that a couple of residents of the Scottsdale, Arizona, senior living and assisted living facility take a stroll to the nearby golf course and find themselves shooting the breeze with the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers on the fourth green.
It’s like the ultimate bingo, especially when both women are big Wisconsin Packers fans.
Marlowe Sorensen, 84, and Sandy Bing, 79, wore their Packers t-shirts as they staked out Wednesday at TPC Scottsdale Golf Course in hopes of seeing Rodgers, who played golf in the Annex Pro -Am 2022 before the Waste Management Phoenix Open. He spotted them and sat down for a quick tour, as reported by Rob Hernandez of Wisconsin.Golf, who caught up with Sorensen and Bing afterwards.

“He said to somebody, ‘I don’t need to putt, I need to see my ladies,'” Bing told Hernandez. “He asked our names, he shook our hands.”
“He wanted to know where we were from,” Sorensen said in the same interview. “I was so close to him. I could have rubbed his little beard.”
Hernandez shared the photo of the three of them on Twitter. Someone else at the tournament commented on the tweet that Rodgers spent about 3 minutes chatting with the ladies and he could hear about Bart Starr and the old Milwaukee County Stadium.
A YouTube video shows Sorensen and Bing telling Rodgers that they live in “the house” nearby and joking that the staff will send a search party for them if they are not back by happy hour. Rodgers mentions sneaking in “a few Manhattans,” and Sorensen looks at his watch
“No, it’s too early,” she laughs. Bing intervenes with “5 hours somewhere”.
That’s the kind of catchy joke episodes of “The Golden Girls” are made.
When it was time for Rodgers to get back into golf, Sorensen fired him with a hearty pat on the back.
Their encounter made headlines Thursday morning on Maravilla’s Facebook page. The message reads as follows:
“A true sportsman and gentleman, Green Bay Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers couldn’t resist the charm of our Maravilla Ladies. Mr Rodgers took a break from golfing at the Waste Management Open to relax with Marlowe and Sandy. After a few photos and a great chat he was back on the course and Sandy and Marlowe told an epic story for all the Packers fans at Maravilla!
