Travis Kelce prefers to hang out with his pals nearer to home rather than rush to board an aircraft to visit his fiancée Taylor Swift in Australia.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, joked around with a friend as they spent four hours on Sunday playing virtual rounds of golf in Parkville, Missouri, around 30 miles from his home in Kansas.

The keen golfer kept his head down as he and former Chief tight end Ross Travis carried their clubs to indoor golf course, X-Golf – where they were later seen leaving with takeaway boxes, exclusive DailyMail.com pictures show.

Kelce’s friend, Travis, 31, played alongside him in Kansas City from 2015 until he was waived in 2017. He also played briefly for the Indianapolis Colts. They are regularly seen hanging together.

It appears Kelce has been eager to stay close to home after the backlash over his ‘partying’ in the wake of the mass shooting that broke out last week at the Chiefs’ victory parade which saw more than 30 injured and one killed.

The NFL star had returned triumphant to Kansas City following their Super Bowl LVII win, before the tragedy unfolded.

Swift, 34, meanwhile, is currently on the Australian leg of her Eras Tour, leaving fans to speculate if Kelce will rush to support her in Melbourne after their romance dominated NFL coverage this season.

He had previously teased fans of his New Heights podcast, which aired on Wednesday, that he could be soon heading down under to see Swift.

Kelce added that next week’s podcast is a ‘guest’ episode which he is not featured in, which led fans to believe he could join his girlfriend in Sydney from February 23 – and maybe travel with her to Singapore for her shows in the first week of March.

But Swift’s boyfriend appears to be in no rush to make the long journey to Australia as of yet, opting to some downtime at home.

On Sunday he looked calm as he returned from his four-hour long virtual golf session, despite receiving backlash for his partying antics.

He was hit with a barrage of criticism after he was pictured at a ‘scaled down’ party following the mass shooting at the Chiefs celebration parade.

Kelce and Swift each donated $100,000 to victims of the shooting, which saw 22 people rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds.

Police confirmed half of those injured were children.

The donation only came after he took waves of criticism for partying and posing for a smiling selfie with a police officer in the wake of the deadly shooting.

He was seen beaming at Granfalloon Restaurant and Bar on Wednesday in a snap obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com alongside several teammates and their WAGs – including quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife wife Brittany.
Kelce was part of a small group at the sports bar which also included Chiefs punter Tommy Townsend, center Creed Humphrey, tight end Matt Bushman and his wife Emily.

Local DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan was shot and killed in the incident which started as a ‘dispute’ between a group of two youths, according to investigators.

Two juveniles have been arrested and were charged on Friday in connection with the incident, but Missouri law means their hearing was held in private and no other details have been made public.

Kansas City Police and the FBI are looking for others who may have been involved and are calling for witnesses, victims, and people with cellphone video of the violence to call a dedicated hotline.

All the patients who were admitted to Children’s Mercy Hospital following the mass shooting have been discharged, with medics treating 12 patients.

In total at least 39 people were wounded with 23 suffering from gunshot injuries – including nine children.

The victims’ ages range between eight and 47, with the hospital confirming that the children should make a full recovery.
