Tiger, Mickelson set up Thanksgiving duel

Tiger Woods And Phil Mickelson’s $10 Million Match Is Officially Happening

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will go head-to-head in a winner-takes-all US$9 million (S$12.3 million) duel in Las Vegas in November, it was announced on Wednesday.

That it'll be pay per view (the price has not yet been announced) has rankled some.

Turner Sports will produce the pay-per-view telecast of the event, which will offer $9 million to the victor and will be played Friday, Nov. 23, at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. "We think there will be some pretty good interest, but we're also trying to present it in a way that you don't get to see with normal TV".

Turner Sports will produce all live coverage for the pay-per-view event, which will be distributed through Turner's new subscription OTT service B/R Live, AT&T's DirecTV, AT&T U-verse, and other on-demand platforms.

Earlier this month, Woods declared that nothing was yet set in stone, but confirmation arrived on Wednesday via his Twitter account.

Of course we're still waiting on a couple of things like the format and who exactly is forking over the $10 million dollar prize up for grabs.

Hurricane Lane is the biggest weather threat to Hawaii in decades
Hawaiians have been urged to buckle down with supplies as the island prepares to be hit by Hurricane Lane, a Category 4 cyclone. Only two hurricanes have made landfall in Hawaii since the 1950s: Hurricane Dot in 1959, and Hurricane Iniki in 1992.

Forget the fact that the 42-year-old Woods is playing in his first FedEx Cup Playoffs since 2013 at the Northern Trust this weekend - we've got a ground-breaking match in our midst.

"It allows us to be a little bit more real, if you will", Mickelson said.

"In the first week of October, it will start to heat up", he said.

Former world number one Woods returned to golf this year after missing most of the previous two years due to recurring back problems.

Unless that graphic is inaccurate, you'd have to figure that Mickelson should be a heavy favorite if both golfers opt to use left-handed drivers. The match was initially reported to be a $10 million, winner-take-all event, but Woods' tweet seems to indicate that the victor will walk away with $9 million. "That's the exciting part about it".
