Golf Channel – Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson remain committed to working out the details of a $10 million, winner-take-all, made-for-TV match, according to a report Friday by Golf.com.
The primetime match was originally scheduled for July 3, likely at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. “We’re working on a different date,” Mickelson told the website. “I thought it was done for the 3rd, but obviously it wasn’t.”
Golf.com’s report is part of a vision in which the game’s two biggest stars would play a couple of exhibitions each year. Both players have agreed to wear microphones for the match, even with so much cash on the line.
“It’s a ridiculous amount of money,” Mickelson said. “No matter how much money you have, this amount will take both of us out of our comfort zone.”
This is amazing, two icons set to duel for a ton of money. Must see TV right here. This isn’t something I want, it’s something I need. It’s like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers getting together and holding their own Super Bowl. Two players on the back 9 of their career doing something the fans would love, and I’m all for it. After they stopped doing Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, I needed something like this in my life, it’s like golfs equivalent of the WWE. Just call out another player and boom, you’re playing for $10 mil.
