Cape Town - "The Match", the biggest showdown in golf, takes place this week and the action will be broadcast live on SuperSport.

Superstar Tiger Woods will play against fellow great Phil Mickelson in a head-to-head, winner-takes-all $9 million match play showdown.

The pair have been rivals throughout their professional careers and recently played practice rounds together at the Masters and the WGC-Bridgestone.

They were also grouped during the first two rounds of the Players Championship in Florida.

Woods and Mickelson will be able to challenge each other at various points during the match, including longest drive and closest-to-the-pin contests.

The action gets under way on Friday, November 23 at 22:00 SA time on SuperSport 1.
