Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson to play charity golf match with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning
According to Darren Rovell of Action Network, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play a 2 v. 2 charity golf match with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in May.
TNT will air the match live, with rumored dates being May 15 or May 24. Woods and Manning are believed to be one pair, as both are Nike athletes, while Mickelson and Brady make up the other pairing.
No course has been finalized, but Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla. has been named as one possibility. Nationally televised sporting matches are considered “essential” in the state of Florida, which could clear the way for the match to go ahead there.
PGA Tour officials would not confirm the event, but noted that Woods and Mickelson will have to sign release forms to play in such an event.
Woods and Mickelson played one-on-one in 2018, so this will essentially be a sequel of sorts.
This was widely rumored, and while this isn’t official confirmation, it’s a pretty good indication that this will be happening. With sports shut down for the foreseeable future, it promises to be perhaps the biggest live event in the month of May.
