Move over, NFL and college football. Make way for a new event that reportedly is coming to Thanksgiving weekend.
It’s Tiger vs. Phil — or Phil vs. Tiger, depending on your point of view — for a boatload of money, according to ESPN.
The showdown between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will take place either Nov. 23 or Nov. 24 at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, ESPN’s Mike Greenberg reported. Rumors about the winner-take-all event have been swirling for a while, with a $10 million payout figure being tossed about. ESPN reported that the purse has not yet been determined, but these guys, you know, don’t work cheap.
The event will capitalize on a relationship that has thawed after years of frosty competitiveness and it’s a nod to the fact that Woods turns 43 in December and Mickelson is 48. It’s now or never. And who doesn’t like money?
