I'd be in if the $20 included a bucket of wings, a pitcher of Diet Coke (with refills), bleu cheese, celery, my own booth, and dessert.

$20 for a once in a lifetime showdown...im in...im in for the next 5 matches too.

Its a private setting, no fans.  Tiger and Phil in a high stakes money game with the same atmosphere as your Sunday game at the club...i love it.

However...i would have liked to have seen it under the lights in front of a massive live crowd as well.

Reaction is very polarized; people are either all in, or they are actually insulted by the mere suggestion of paying 20 bucks for this.

You started a thread about something you have ZERO interest in?  :huh:

Yes (and do I really have to explain this?) because this is a GOLF DISCUSSION board and I'm interested in all things golf.  Just because I'm not going to subscribe to a made-for-TV staged promotion doesn't mean I can't inquire about the interest others might have, if that's all right with you.

As an avid golf fan, and someone who's thoroughly enjoyed watching Phil and Tiger as a part of my "regular" cable package over the past 20 years...YES I will pay $20 to see them in a head to head match.

Hopefully it delivers and isn't a corny, non-competitive event.

Who knows how many more times we will see these legends tee it up. Stop being such entitled wussbags and acting like you're too good to watch this.

$20 dollars to watch a tired out Tiger potter around and still thrash a ridiculous haircut hacking it around and missing every fairway, I'm good, I'd rather go to bed early than watch that rubbish.

I'm not offended by it, I just think the key to any sporting event is having some kind of stake. These guys are both not in their prime, there's nothing at stake. I would imagine though it's just a guess, that neither guy really cares that much if they win
