Tiger Woods v Phil Mickelson It's On!
$9,000,000.00 winner takes it all exhibition match
It's on. Tiger v Phil. Winner-takes-all $9m (£7m) exhibition match in Las Vegas over 18 holes at Shadow Creek GC.
23rd November. Put in your diary. If you're in America, you'll know this is Thanksgiving weekend.
"It's an opportunity for us to bring golf to the masses in prime time during a period where we don't have much going on in the world of golf," Lefty told ESPN.
"It's a way to show a side you don't normally see by having us mic'd up to hear some of the interaction between us."
Lefty, who has attracted almost 100,000 followers in less than 24 hours on Twitter, replied to Woods's twitter declaration of the match by saying: "I bet you think this is the easiest $9M you will ever make."
These two have won over £156,000,000.00 on the PGA Tour.
They're being pally now but there's no chance they are going to cut the cake down the middle.
"If you [don't] do winner takes it all, it undermines it," Said Phil. "The whole point is the winner-take-all thing. That's the exciting part about it."
Tiger's heroics at The Open and US PGA have put him firmly back at the cenre of the golf map, and both he and Mickelson are closing in on late Ryder Cup bids.
