Off-season T.J. Oshie means golf -- and lots of it. 

T.J. has been spotted playing in the Washington, D.C. area already this summer before heading back once again to Lake Tahoe to play in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship this past weekend. 

To kick off the event on a practice day, the tournament hosted a long drive competition where Oshie stepped up with a drive that carried an impressive 369 yards (with a little help from the over 6000 feet in elevation).

He didn't even hit it flush! The drive was good enough to finish in 3rd place. 

For the first round of the tournament T.J. was paired with current Dallas Stars forward Joe Pavelski as well as former player Mike Modano, the latter of which holed out for a double eagle and got some hype from his playing partners.

Tweet from @TJOshie77: Every group needs a hype guy. I would like to take full credit for how well these two played today. T1 and T3. Your welcome boys. 🇺🇸 @jpav8 @9modano #ACCGolf pic.twitter.com/8IoDQtsw8z

The following two days of the tournament, T.J. was paired with Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, Mexican professional boxer Canelo Alvarez, former MLB star Shane Victorino and Kevin from The Office (Brian Baumgartner). 

In the modified stableford format he had a total of 20 points which was good enough for a T39 finish out of 87 golfers.  

The entire Oshie clan was also in attendance for the getaway with T.J.'s wife Lauren Oshie posting photos of Leni and Lyla watching their dad on the links.
