Johnny Manziel has his sights set on joining the PGA Tour.

The former NFL quarterback revealed on a recent episode of the "Green Light with Chris Lon‪g‬" podcast he's interested in becoming a professional golfer. He's aiming to accomplish the goal before he turns 40.

"I'm giving myself 12 years to try to play professional golf," Manziel said. "I'm gonna grind this out and see how good I can get and see if I can't enter in some tournaments and see if I can't go play professional golf eventually. I think it is a very uphill battle, but that's what I'm setting for my goals. I have 12 years to try and make a PGA Tour event."

Manziel, 28, returned to the gridiron last month as part of the Fan Controlled Football league. He said he signed with the league because he had a lot of free time on his hands and isn't interested in making an NFL comeback.
