The Match: Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson November 22, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada will host the winner take all $9 million match play event between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. This is the big event after Thanksgiving and expect a lot of golf fans on the course as well as in their homes to watch this one-time match.

This dream match should have happened 15 years ago when both players are in their glory days. But with individual success written all over their resumes, this event is hard to ignore with two of golf's greatest players playing for fun, pride and bragging rights.

Phil Mickelson had a fine 2018 season, he won the WGC-Mexico and showed some steady nerves as he competed in the majors. For Tiger Woods, it was a comeback tour as he resurrected his career from back injuries and personal problems.

He steadily played in every tournament he played this season. He contended in the major but his prized win was the Tour Championship.

Both players have intrigued their golf fans once again. Thus, this winner take all match was easily conceived and both players have agreed with enthusiasm. It may take a long time for this kind of match to be duplicated. This match was not made for both golfers but for the fans worldwide.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Tiger Woods as the favorite to win over Phil Mickelson on Friday's $9 million winner take all match.
