Phil Mickelson hints at rematch with Tiger Woods during coronavirus pandemic

Phil Mickelson

Sports fans are desperate for any type of live event to watch as the coronavirus outbreak continues to impact the United States, and Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods may be exploring the possibility of giving them what they want.

On Sunday night, a fan on Twitter asked Mickelson if there is a possibility of him and Tiger playing another one-on-one match like they did back in 2018. Such an event could be structured in a way that people could still follow social distancing guidelines, and Mickelson said he is “working on it.”

Mickelson then responded to another follower who told him not to “tease” fans.

Obviously, Woods would need to be on-board with the idea as well. Mickelson beat Tiger in “The Match” back in 2018 with $9 million at stake. The event was supposed to cost $19.99, but technical difficulties resulted in Turner Sports and Bleacher Report having to stream it for free. There were some awesome moments during the round and the two legends made sure to entertain fans for as long as they could.

If Mickelson and Woods were both interested in a rematch, perhaps the event could raise money for those being impacted by the coronavirus.
