The Match Pt. 2 is ‘on’: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning to tee it up for charity

Published

on

“It’s on now,” Phil Mickelson tweeted at Tiger Woods and Tom Brady.

“It” refers to the long-rumored sequel to “The Match,” the 2018 Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson made-for-television showdown.

In this installment, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be joined by Peyton Manning and Tom Brady for “The Match: Champions for Charity,” according to a Turner Sports release.

Fundraising efforts and donations around the event will benefit COVID-19 relief, with the specific charities to be announced later.

The venue and specific date are also TBD, as is the format, however, we do know the event will air on TNT.

The rumored pairings are Mickelson and Manning taking on Woods and Brady. At least one sportsbook is already offering odds on those pairings (SuperBook USA; Woods/Brady +130, Mickelson/Manning -150). However, a Mickelson tweet suggests he’ll be joining forces with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.

According to Turner, “Tournament organizers are currently working with state and local government and public health officials on competition and production logistics to ensure the event follows safety and health protocols.”

The PGA Tour is yet to approve members Woods and Mickelson participating in the event.

“We are still in discussions on a number of items, including ensuring the health and safety for all involved with the event,” A Tour official told the Action Network’s Jason Sobel.

In November, 2018, Mickelson defeated Woods at the first “Match,” claiming the $9 million first prize with a birdie on the fourth playoff hole.

    Made for TV garbage.

    Brady and Manning? Pathetic joke.

    By using football players, you’re bringing in a bigger audience. And the commentary from all of them will be hilarious.

    What a great idea. I love golf and I love football. Tom Brady and Phil would be an awesome team. Can’t wait! (I hope they play in Pinehurst.)

    Woods and Stricker vs Mickelson and Furyk would be the ultimate match IMO

      That would be real golf, not the fake garbage they are proposing with this fiasco. TV wouldn’t be interested in real golf.

        Golf is dead. Maybe not to us but it’s only going one direction. It ain’t up.

    the health and safety?? Let’s be real here … less than .002 percent of Americans are currently sick . They have a better chance of getting hit by lightening on the course, the lifetime risk of being struck by lightning in the United States is roughly one in 3,000. Play the damn game!

      Sorry Jim, your math doesn’t quite add up….too much FN I suspect. 850K/330M is not .002 percent. Facts.

        I suggest you shove your tongue down the throat of someone who has full blown Covid-19 and invite four or five of them to have dinner in your home. Make sure they sit right next to you, maybe six inches (not feet) away from you.

        The ignorance present in your comment is astounding, but not at all surprising.

          No, it wouldn’t be “epic” and most of them would not put their own money up. They don’t know what it is to risk their own money and those that do aren’t putting up a million. These events are always bankrolled by the third part sponsors and not by the particpants.

            So what. At least it’s new entertainment you don’t have to watch it your comments are not productive or enlightening except the covid one to the ignorant moron

    have no desire to watch football players play golf..just a stupid idea. we want a real competition .. maybe two against two where both teams hate each other.

    4-10 pros, each putting up a million. Head to Head match play. Winner takes all. Steep buy-in will attract the best. Would be epic!

    I would rather see Woods and Mickelson against McIlroy and Rose or Koepka and Dustin Johnson.

      I agree though i can also see how they would want football fans interested too for viewership numbers. Ill put my money on this being another dud just for the reason they are trying to please multiple styles of people. UNLESS it airs before all the lock downs are lifted. Where im at that means they would need to hurry up and make this happen yesterday.

Interesting photos from Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Championship

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the Wells Fargo Championship. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to spy a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers where the field is getting ready to play starting Thursday for the $8.1 million purse, with the winner going home with just over $1.45 million dollars and the important 500 FedEx Cup points.

Don’t forget you can check out all our image galleries in the GolfWRX Tour Equipment forum.

New Ping irons and wedges spotted

It’s a big week at the Wells Fargo for Ping, with the official tour launch of the new i59 irons and Glide Forged Pro wedges. We are still seeking out the full tech, and potential release info, but you can join the discussion about the new gear in the GolfWRX forums: Ping i59 irons – 2021 Wells Fargo Championship

That’s one way to make a site line

Although he is still one of the better ball-strikers on tour, Lucas Glover’s difficulty with the putter has been well documented. We spotted him on the putting green at Quail Hollow making an improvised site line on his Scotty Cameron Newport 2. Those Sharpies are good for more than just signing autographs!

Very unique hosel on this Odyssey

This Odyssey widebody putter has its plumber’s neck hosel very close to the center of the topline to reduce toe hang and offer a one-of-a-kind view in the address position.

Bettinardi prototype high toe mallet

This Hexperimental Proto from the folks at Bettinardi looks like the milled steel lovechild of their Studio Stock 17 and a Queen Bee 11. It combines the high-toe look with a bumpered mallet.

Jason Day working with a new putter

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: the Bryson effect is real. This week, it looks like Jason Day has moved to a SIK putter paired with an LA Golf putter shaft after a very long run with a TaylorMade Spider.

Speaking of Jason Day and new gear…

The new SIK putter was seen in the bag with no backup in sight and a new wedge (under plastic). Super bonus points for the Augusta National pro shop (only for Members and guests) accessories bag Day is using—that’s serious golf drip.

Wyndham Clark PXG irons confirmed

IMG_9688.jpeg

After some speculation about their existence, we now have confirmation that the irons being used by Wyndham Clark are a yet-to-be-released PXG Gen 4 0311 ST (Super Tour) blade. You can see more pictures of the iron here: GolfWRX Forums In hand Gen4 0311 ST irons

Xander’s got a lot of headcovers in there

Xander Schauffele must be on the lookout for some new fairway woods, because he had five different options under headcovers on the range at Quail Hollow. Maybe he has a few of those Triple Diamond Epic Speeds under there? GolfWRX Spotted: Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond fairway wood

Rickie working on a lot, including his tempo

Rickie had a lot going on at the range on Tuesday and one of the more interesting things of note was an iron shafted with a Fujikura MCI tempo trainer.

Dufner with new Cobra putter

The search for a putter seems to be nonstop for Jason Dufner at the moment and after some time with an oversized Cobra mallet, it looks like he has moved onto something a little smaller and with a bit more toe hang.

Smiling assassin Sungjae Im

If you were inside the top 25 on the FedEx Cup and playing as well as Sungjae is right now, you’d probably be smiling too.

Rafa is rolling one very nice Scotty Cameron

When it comes to Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, the “Timeless” Newport 2 style stands alone and Rafa’s custom looks really good from here.
