This just in:

For Capital One’s The Match: Tiger vs. Phil


Blockbuster Pay Per View Event – Produced by Turner Sports – to Tee Off


Friday, Nov. 23, at 3 p.m. (EST)/Noon (PST) With a Suggested Retail Price of $19.99


PPV Event Reflects New AT&T Combined Resources, Available Through


Turner’s B/R Live, AT&T’s DIRECTV, U-verse and Other TV Providers



I've said all along that my interest in this cash-grab fiasco is ZERO.  Two forty-somethings, long past their prime, now buddies, promising nothing more than mediocre golf and some not-so-nasty "smack talk" won't be worth a dime.  And now they want to charge 20 bucks for an event that means NOTHING.  

Oh, and it might be fun to jet off to Vegas and check this thing out in person?  Nope.  No tickets for 'real' spectators; only gallery will be friends, family, VIP's and sponsors.  (FIGJAM and Woodhead are said to be donating some proceeds to charity.  Have at it, boys, if that makes you feel any less guilty for staging this unneeded rip-off.)

Include me out.  You?

Providers for the pay-per-view will include Turner's B/R Live platform, DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and others.

The match, which will be played on the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, will begin at noon locally (3 p.m. ET).

The winner will take home the entire $9 million pot.

During the match, Woods and Mickelson will make side challenges against each other, with winnings being donated to the golfer's charity of choice.

Sources said fans won't be able to watch the matchup live in person, as there will be no on-site tickets sold.

I’m much more interested in seeing Shadow Creek than 2 golfers on the down side of their careers so I’ll wait til it’s streamed for free.

Wouldn’t it just be something if Tiger’s chipping yips came back and Phil hits them everywhere like he did at the Ryder Cup. This would go down of one of the biggest PPV catastrophes ever.
