Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson to play The Match: Champions for Charity with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning
Woods will play with Manning, Mickelson will partner Brady
Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are set clash in a rematch of The Match, but this time will be joined by NFL stars Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in The Match: Champions for Charity.
The idea has been put together by broadcasters Turner Sports, and revealed by Bleacher Report, and the quartet are set to tee it up some time in May as a fundraiser following the outbreak of coronavirus.
Woods and Mickelson, two of golf’s most familiar faces and rivals throughout their careers, went head-to-head in The Match in November 2018 in Las Vegas in what was golf’s first pay-per-view event.
Five-time major champion Mickelson won the $9 million prize after 22 holes, eventually defeating 15-time major winner Woods on the fourth play-off hole at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Match: Champions for Charity
While Turner Sports revealed details of the event taking place and featuring the quartet, little more has been revealed about The Match: Champions for Charity.
It is thought a May date will be found for The Match, but no host venue or format has been revealed – or which charities the event will be in aid of.
The event, however, will be a two-on-two match with Woods pairing up with Manning and Mickelson teaming up with Brady, who has also invested in pickleball. Lefty himself revealed that fact in a Tweet.
Who are Tom Brady and Peyton Manning?
Brady and Manning are two of the most successful NFL quarterbacks in history.
Brady won the Super Bowl six times with the New England Patriots, and will begin the new season as a Tampa Bay Buccaneers player.
Now-retired Manning remains the only starting quarterback to win Super Bowls with different teams having been crowned champion with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 and Denver Broncos 10 years later.
Brady is an 8-handicap golfer and a regular at PGA Tour pro-ams, while Manning plays to a 6-handicap.
