Tiger Woods’ and Phil Mickelson’s $10 million dollar golf match isn’t as intriguing as golf fans would like it to be.
If you’re interested in seeing a couple of millionaires play a friendly game of golf for a wager that neither one of them will miss, you’re in luck.
The head-to-head $10 million winner-take-all, 18-hole match that the two golfers had teased early in July will reportedly take place over the American Thanksgiving long weekend either on Friday, Nov. 23 or Saturday, Nov. 24 at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas.
The seeds of the plan were reportedly planted back in April, at the Masters, when Woods and Mickelson played a much-anticipated practice round together.
A month later, at the Players Championship, when they were paired together in a tournament for the first time in four years, they used the hype to tease the event.
“The excitement that’s been going on around here, it gets me thinking: Why don’t we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stakes, winner-take-all match,” Mickelson said during the tournament. “Now, I don’t know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round.”
With negotiations likely underway by that point, Woods played along with the friendly challenge. “I’m definitely not against that,” he told media at the tournament. “We’ll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable.”
