Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are planning a $10 million head-to-head, winner-take-all, showdown.
Golf.com says calls it a, quote, “18-hole death match,” which sounds very exciting.
Of course, it would’ve been even better if it happened 10 years ago, when both of them were closer to being at the top of their game, but hey, it’s better than it happening 10 years from now.
It’s been in the works for a few months, ever since they played a practice round together.
At this year’s Players Championship, they were paired together and Phil said, quote, “The excitement that’s been going on around here, it gets me thinking: ‘Why don’t we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stakes, winner-take-all match.”
The showdown was originally supposed to happen last week, but they were negotiating with a network, and it didn’t come together in time.
Phil says they’re working on finding a new date. There’s no word which network it is.
I think to make it more interesting they should do one hole of golf, then a hole of mini golf.
Who doesn’t want to see Tiger try and navigate a windmill?
