(August 22, 2018) — The head-to-head showdown between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods is official and will be held at the Shadow Creek in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving. The winner of the highly-anticipated 18-hole duel between the two legends will walk away with a prize of $9 million.
‘The Match’ was made official on Tiger’s Twitter on the same day Phil Mickelson joined Twitter — in lefty fashion. Phil and Tiger engaged in some friendly trash talk after the announcement, which you can see HERE.
Phil says the format will be match play, but details are still being worked out. The Match is going to be a special event and Phil knows the importance. “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,” Mickelson said. “It’s a way to show a side you don’t normally see by having us miked up to hear some of the interaction between us.”
As if this historic event couldn’t get any better, both Phil and Tiger will be mic’d throughout.
