Tiger vs Phil: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will tee it up on Friday in Las Vegas for The Match, which will feature loads of cash ($9 million to the winner), plenty of side bets (Mickelson already put $200,000 on the table that he would birdie the first hole) and what should be one of the more unique golf viewing experiences we’ve ever had.
There will be a lot going on on Friday for those who fork over the $19.99 to watch a few hours of two of the best to ever play the game going at it on the course (and on the mic). The presentation will include live odds on a variety of shots, drone footage and on-course interviews with the players. It’s also uncensored (and you can wager on how much the two golfers will curse).
“This event is designed to be a unique experience for a golf viewer, and to have an insight into what goes on with the players to create a production from drone coverage to on-screen gambling to live mics and interaction,” said Mickelson on Tuesday.
Tiger vs Phil Live will fight it out for supremacy in Capital One’s The Match on Friday, with the winner ready to collect $9 million (£7 million) for victory. Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. will host the unique exhibition spectacle, with two of the world’s greatest golfers preparing for one-on-one combat.
“It’s an insight into the game that you’re not normally able to see. That’s why we’ve chosen each decision. It’s why it’s on pay-per-view. We had to eliminate the commercials to have that insight in between shots.”
And speaking of that pay-per-view decision, here’s a look at the schedule of events so you can watch all the action on whatever device you want.
