Well, the time is here we’ve waited months for it since the announcement in the Spring. The Black Friday showdown between the two greatest golfers of this generation Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Match Play format at Shadow Creek Golf Club just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nine Million dollars on the line winner take all.
Both are coming off the best season of the past five years as each won on the PGA Tour for the first time since 2013. As great as the two have been they very rarely went head to head on big stages. Perhaps their most memorable battle was when neither won in the final round of the 2009 Masters they were paired together six shots off the lead teeing off an hour before them. Mickelson shot 30 on the front, Woods 32 but both lost their moment on the back nine.
The books in Vegas have Tiger as the -200 favorite to claim the prize. One thing to watch out for is there will be side bets with Mickelson around of course so watch out for closest to the pin and longest drive bets among others. So here it is Tiger and Phil’s fans get what they’ve longed for let’s jump right to a Sunday afternoon 18 holes mono a mono winner take all. Put the peg in the ground lets go.
