On Thanksgiving weekend, legendary golf masters 14-time Major Champion Tiger Woods and five-time Major Champion Phil Mickelson will square off in an epic, head-to-head 18-hole head showdown in Sin City. The stakes are high, with Tiger and Phil vying for the winner-take-all $9 million prize.

Aptly deemed The Match, this Capital One-sponsored event tees off at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT on Friday, November 23, on the beautiful fairway of MGM Resorts International’s exclusive Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas.

During the live event competition, both Woods and Mickelson will selectively make side challenges against one another.  For instance, Woods or Mickelson could raise the stakes by challenging the other to a long-drive, closest-to-the-pin or similar competition during a hole as they play their match, with money being donated to the winning golfer’s charity of choice.
