HOBE SOUND, FLORIDA (AP) — The next match involving Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson involves a USD10 million donation for COVID-19 relief efforts, along with plenty of bragging rights in a star-powered foursome on May 24 at Medalist Golf Club.
Turner Sports announced more details on Thursday for The Match: Champions for Charity, a televised match between Woods and Peyton Manning against Mickelson and Tom Brady.
Medallist is where Woods plays when he’s at home. Manning and Brady said they have played there before — Manning running out of golf balls before reaching the 18th, Brady posting a 106.
The format will be better ball for the front nine and modified alternate shot on the back nine, meaning both players hit tee shots and they take turns from there.
It will be simulcast on May 24 at 3pm EDT on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN, along with pre-match coverage available on the Bleacher Report app.
WarnerMedia and the four players will collectively make a charitable donation of USD10 million to benefit various relief efforts locally and nationally. Turner said the match includes a partnership with the “All In Challenge”, an initiative that provides food for those in need.
