LOS ANGELES – Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will go head-to-head in a winner-take-all $9 million (7.78 million euro) duel in Las Vegas in November, it was announced Wednesday.
Woods and Mickelson, who have 19 Major titles between them, will face off at the Shadow Creek Golf Course on November 23, coinciding with Thanksgiving weekend in the United States.
The match play duel between the two veterans, a head-to-head meeting that has been mooted repeatedly over the years, will be screened on pay-per-view.
“It's an opportunity for us to bring golf to the masses in prime time during a period where we don't have much going on in the world of golf,” Mickelson told ESPN on Wednesday.
“It's a way to show a side you don't normally see by having us miked up to hear some of the interaction between us.”
