The Match 3: Mickelson/Barkley vs Curry/Manning – Full Viewer’s Guide

Published

on

Capital One’s The Match: Champion’s for Change gets underway with this week, with two new additions joining the third edition of the contest. Phil Mickelson will team up with Charles Barkley, while Peyton Manning will return and this time pair up with current NBA star Steph Curry.

Ahead of the event, here’s a rundown of all the essential details you need to know about the contest

The Format

The format for The Match 3 is 18 holes of modified alternate shot. 

In this format, both players from each team will hit tee shots, and then swap balls for their approach shots (e.g. Mickelson will hit Barkley’s second shot and vice versa). Following the second shot, the teams will decide between which ball they want to play for their third.

How good are Barkley, Manning and Curry at golf?

We saw Peyton Manning perform well in The Match 2, and the former NFL quarterback plays off a 6.4 handicap index.

Having played on the formerly known Web.com Tour, Steph Curry is a very proficient golfer and plays off a 0.1 handicap index.

Charles Barkley’s handicap index is unknown, and his swing used to be a source of ridicule. However, Barkley has transformed his swing in recent years, and you can check out this small sample of his game from when he played the ‘Bogey or Better’ challenge at the 18th hole during the broadcast of The Match 2.

Location and Date

The event takes place Friday, Nov. 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

Who will the event benefit?

The Match: Champion’s for Change will raise funds for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

How to Watch

The event will be broadcast live on TNT this Friday, Nov. 27, from 3 PM ET. In addition, Bleacher Report will provide a “Cart Cam” stream – leading up to and during the event.

The Coverage

TNT’s live coverage of Capital One’s The Match will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will provide play-by-play alongside Trevor Immelman and Andre Iguodala. Cheyenne Woods and Gary McCord will feature as on-course announcers for the event, while Eli Manning will be part of a pre-game show as well as “Cart Came” alongside LPGA legend Michelle Wie.

Davis Love III appointed U.S. captain for 2022 Presidents Cup – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Davis Love III’s appointment as the U.S. captain for the 2022 Presidents Cup. WRXer ‘MattyO1984’ kicks off the thread, and is perplexed with the decision, saying:

“No doubt, someone of the pedigree that you would expect to see as Captain but it doesn’t really seem to fit in well with the future planning that the US was seemingly engaged in when it comes to better preparing for the Ryder Cup.

In saying that, I realise that the Presidents Cup is run by the PGA Tour and the Ryder Cup buy the PGA, but it still seems strange nonetheless.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the appointment in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • caniac6: “Recycled Ryder Cup Captain. I can’t believe there isn’t anyone else in line. This should be an audition to become future Ryder Cup Captain, not a landing spot for past captains.”
  • Kramer1997: “Should’ve given it to Tiger again.”
  • iBanesto: “David Toms is not a consideration?”

Finau was a young legend—he was on Big Break—I can’t believe that.
