As the 23rd approaches, the entire country is beginning to think about one thing — and it isn’t the turkey dinner that they will be having. At 3 p.m. ET on the links of Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, two of the greatest golfers who ever lived will be going head to head — mano y mano— for 9 million dollars. Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are of the most known golfers in history, and for good reason too. But there can’t be two “best golfers” on the pro tour, so this match has more on the line than just money. But why should you watch?
A lot of people have found themselves flip-flopping between “Of course I am going to watch” and “Why would I pay for that?’” and while we are rather impartial here at Renegar Golf, there are some compelling reasons to pay for this pay-per-view event. Continue reading to hear some of them.
Everyone Will Be Wearing A Mic
What is the one thing every golfer wants to know when watching a professional golf event on television? Some think “What are they saying to the crowd,” but the more serious golfers think to themselves “What wisdom is their caddy dropping on them? Because I could use that in my golf game.” During this televised event, both Tiger, Phil, and their caddies will be mic’d up for the event — meaning that you will be able to hear EVERYTHING.
Tiger & Phil Are Both Healthy
If this matchup had ever been proposed in the past, it likely would not have happened. In most of the past seasons, one of the two golfers were either hurt or not playing at the top of their game — meaning that it would have been unfair. That being said, now both golfers are healthier than ever — not to mention that they are both having stellar years.
There Will Be Side Challenges
You might be thinking “Wait, the whole thing is a challenge — and for 9 million dollars nonetheless.” While yes, that is more money than most of us can even begin to picture, it is not the cap that the winner will receive. In fact, there is already a side challenge that has been made by the two golfers.
So far, the only confirmed side challenge is that Tiger has bet Phil 200 thousand dollars that he will birdie the first hole. If high stakes like that aren't enough to get you to watch, we don’t know what is.
