Tiger Woods & Peyton Manning vs Phil Mickelson & Tom Brady.
Tigers & Manning vs Phil & Brady.
There’s a certain feeling you get when something so monumental comes about. A certain feeling when you wake up knowing that four guys who can be called by just a single name, and damn near everyone in the world knows who you’re talking about.
That’s exactly what is happening today when Stanford alum Tiger Woods and his playing partner, future Hall of Fame QB, longtime Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning will play against Phil Mickelson and another surefire Hall of Fame QB in Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady.
Yeah — that’s still weird to type out in a sentence. Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady. Oh well, I’ll move on.
The Match: Champions for Charity is airing today, benefiting COVID-19 relief and is set to bring in a combined $10 million.
Tiger and Phil have long since been rivals on the course and remained good friends off the course, similar to Brady and Manning whose rivalries on the field are sure to made into a documentary sometime.
So, now down to brass tacks. How do we watch it? How do you stream it? When? Where?
We got you covered.
How to Watch:
Network: TNT, TBS, truTV, HLN
When to Watch:
Date: Sunday, May 24 at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)
What to Watch:
Format: An 18-hole match with the front-nine holes consisting of Four-Ball scoring (the lower of the two scores is the team’s score for the hole with Brady & Manning each given three strokes on the front nine) and Modified Alternate shot on the back-nine (each player on the team gets a tee shot, they choose the best tee shot and alternate shots from there on the hole).
No handicap is given to Brady & Manning on the back nine and if there’s a tie after 18 holes, there will be a shortened hole in the Modified Alternate shot format on the 18th hole, just 100-125 yards out.
The fifth hole will be a special challenge where each golfer can use one club of their choosing.
Who to Bet: Woods and Manning are favored (-200) over their rivals, Mickelson and Brady (+175), according to William Hill Sportsbook. That is likely due to Mannings lower handicap of 6.4 than Brady’s 8.1. Granted, Peyton has had a few off years more than Brady at this rate to get better.
We get four of the sports world’s biggest living legends on one course for one day only. This is the epitome of must-watch tv.
