Out of nowhere this morning, Golf.com reported that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have been planning a winner-take-all match play round for 10 MILLION (just for reference…the winner of the Masters gets $2 million) that was supposed to take place on July 3rd but fell through. That doesn’t mean this thing isn’t happening. Even though the July 3rd date fell through, they are still working on making this thing happening.
Golf.com – The greatest match that never was almost took place on July 3 in Las Vegas, a prime-time TV special that was to have pitted Tiger Woods against Phil Mickelson in a $10 million winner-take-all, 18-hole death match. The negotiations, involving a major television network and various corporate entities, couldn’t quite be consummated in time but Woods and Mickelson and their people remain committed to making it happen as soon as it’s feasible. “We’re working on a different date,” Mickelson said on Thursday. “I thought it was done for the 3rd but obviously it wasn’t.” Woods’s representatives declined to comment. – TO
