‘The Match: Champions for Charity’ is the name of a golf event that’s supposed to take place in mid-May. Two legends of the sport, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are going to be joined by two football superstars, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in what’s supposed to be a spectacular charity match. All the proceeds will go to coronavirus relief efforts.
‘The Match: Champions for Charity’ will see Tiger Woods and Payton Manning going toe to toe with Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.
Where and When?
It’s been confirmed that the match is going to happen in May, but no specific details have yet been revealed. According to ESPN, the most likely date is Memorial Day weekend.
The same goes for the location of the event, which still hasn’t been confirmed. Still, the most likely candidate seems to be the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
One of the main reasons why the Sunshine State seems like the destination for the event is that it has ‘more lax’ regulations regarding social distancing.
In addition, the state has added some sports to the list of essential businesses. As a result, many big sports organizations have turned their eyes to the southernmost state of the US, including the UFC and NASCAR.
What to Expect on the Golf Course?
This isn’t the first time Woods and Mickelson are facing one another in a ‘friendly’ match. In 2018, the two played a match that brought $600,000 to Lefty’s charity foundation Children of the 58 Fund and the Las Vegas Shriners.
What happened on the course? Mickelson won in 22 holes despite going into the match as a +160 underdog.
This time, each golfer has a sidekick to help him out. Woods is playing together with Manning, who’s famous in footballing circles as a talented golf player. He showed his talents last February at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where he finished in 9th place.
