The Match: Tiger Woods v Phil Mickelson, start time AEDT


A must-see collision between two of golf’s greatest rivals or a cynical multimillion-dollar cash-grab?

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will go head-to-head in Las Vegas on Friday (7am Saturday morning AEDT) with opinion divided over the merits of a contest that will see the winner pocket $US9 ($A12.3 million).

For many observers, the winner-take-all pay-per-view meeting of the 19-time major winners is at least a decade past its sell-by date.

Mickelson, 48, and Woods, 42, were once fierce opponents, regularly sparring for the sport’s biggest prizes.

Even if the rivalry was uneven — Woods spent 683 weeks as world number one; Mickelson never managed to occupy the top spot — the popular narrative endured.
