Roughly a year and a half after the first head-to-head match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, the pair are gearing up for another contest, this time with the help of two legendary American football players, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
Last time out Mickelson narrowly defeated Woods and collected the $9 million prize fund however this time the proceeds will go to charities and relief efforts related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Match: Champions For Charity will be hosted at Medalist Golf Club in Florida and will be broadcast live starting at 2 p.m. ET, with coverage on TNT, TBS, truTV, HLN and CNN International.

Additionally fundraising will support Direct Relief which helps equip heath-care workers with medical supplies; the American Red Cross, which is involved in collecting convalescent plasma for coronavirus treatment; and Save Small Business, a grant-making initiative to help small business employers who are struggling because of the pandemic.
The format will be four-ball better ball on the front nine before switching to a greensomes format. Here all participants will tee off and then they will play alternate shot from the selected drives.
