Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson to face Aaron Rodgers, Bryson DeChambeau in ‘The Match’
Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson lost to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning in “The Match” last year, but the duo will get another chance to prove their worth against new opponents in July.
Turner Sports announced on Wednesday that there will be a fourth edition of “The Match” played on July 6 at Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Mont. Brady and Mickelson will face off against Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau.

“The Match” has been wildly popular since Mickelson and Tiger Woods faced one another back in 2018. The event returned last May when Mickelson and Brady faced Woods and Manning and raised over $20 million for charity during the pandemic. Then in November, Mickelson partnered with Charles Barkley to defeat Manning and Stephen Curry.
Brady has already begun talking trash ahead of the July showdown.

Golf fans were probably hoping Brooks Koepka would be involved given how much him and DeChambeau hate each other, but this year’s match should be plenty entertaining.
Brady embarrassed himself in many ways during “The Match” last year, so he should be extremely motivated to turn things around. Between that and Mickelson coming off a huge win at the PGA Championship, we like their chances against DeChambeau and Rodgers.
