Cape Town - It’s new, it’s dynamic and it’s for a staggering $9 million pot of cash.

Known simply as “The Match”, the head-to-head match play event between golf superstars Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be broadcast live on SuperSport on November 23.

DStv Premium subscribers will receive the broadcast as part of their SuperSport package, unlike US viewers who will have to fork out $19.99 (R293) for the pay-per-view event.

To be played in Las Vegas, the winner of this winner-take-all showdown between two golf legends will walk away with a cool $9 million (around R132 million). 

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.

Woods is a 14-time Major winner and boasts 80 PGA Tour wins.

Mickelson, in turn, has won five Majors and is a 43-time PGA Tour winner having spent a remarkable 700 weeks in the top 10.
