After the second addition of The Match was announced last month, we now have all of the exciting details. It will be Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady vs. Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning on May 24 of Memorial Day Weekend at 3pm ET on TNT. The golfers will collectively make a charitable donation of $10 million for COVID-19 relief. As part of the fundraising efforts, the event will also include a partnership with the ALL IN Challenge as well as on-course challenges for charity. The event will take place at the Medalist Golf Club in Hope Sound, Florida.
As the details were announced for The Match: Champions for Charity, the news came along with some friendly banter from the four participants, especially from Lefty, who took some shots at Tiger all in good fun.
You know I had to come in hot with a little trash talk, but as usual, he got the better of me 😔
Even more excited to raise money for those in need during these difficult times. pic.twitter.com/jp1ten4UqH
