Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady will all take to the golf course for a live two-on-two competition next month called “The Match: Champions for Charity”.
All proceeds will go to the relief of coronaviruses.
Sure, maybe the game is supposed to be friendly, but there will certainly be some competitiveness in the air – at least from Mickelson.
“It is now,” he wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a smiling emoji.
The event is scheduled to air on TNT, but specific dates and times have yet to be set, according to the Bleacher report. Contacted by CNN, Turner Sports made no comments, but did not dispute the Bleacher Report.
Turner Sports, Bleacher Report, TNT and CNN all share a parent company, WarnerMedia.
It would be the second “The Match” event to occur, the first taking place between Woods and Mickelson in 2018.
Golf has been largely suspended since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Since the PGA canceled the players’ championship on March 12, there have been no events.
According to ESPN, the PGA Tour must approve all events in which its players participate, and the organization has not yet signed up.
