Any golf fans watching?
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess no.
Match play. 9 million dollars. Not Mega Ball money but still a helluva lot of $'s for a round of golf.
I'll try provide some updates for anyone that finds interesting.
Their interviewing the two standing at the first tee.
They're broadcasting in 4K today.
Hole #1 - Par #4 - 379 yards
Both are wearing mics for this match.
Both had a drive down the center if the fairway. Looks like Tiger is away only by 2 yards.
Tigers 2nd shot is on the green.
Phil made a $200,000 bet that he will birdie this hole.
His 2nd shot also on the green.
All of these side bets are being donated to charity. I'm wondering if these bets will add up to the 9 mil?
Tiger is away and will putt 1st. Probably about 10 feet or so.
Tigers putt wide right and long.
9 foot birdie putt for Phil.
Phil's putt..... Wide left. Losses the 200k.
All squared after 1.
Hole #2 - Par #4 - 430 yards
Phil's tee shot down the center of the fairway.
Tiger's..... Much the same.
Phil's away 166 yards out.
They are letting them use range finders.
Phil's 2nd shot is just right of the green about a yard off.
Tigers shot is also just right.
Tigers 3rd shot....
About 4 feet shy of the pin.
Phil's 3rd shot.....
Just left 5 feet beyond.
In the hole.
Phil wins the hole..... Goes 1 up
Hole #3 - Par #4 - 476 yards
Phil's tee down the center.
Tiger in the rough, right. Behind some trees.
His 2nd shot is just if the green, short left.
On the green. Will be a long putt.

Tiger makes his.
Phil 1 up after 3
Hole #4 - Par #5 - 564 yards
Phil down the center. 4 straight fairways.
Tiger goes long right. Misses the last two fairways.
2nd shot.... ?????
Phil's..... In the 2nd cut just right of the green .
Within 3 feet of the hole
These guys make this look too easy.
My reality differs.
Phil pretty much has to hole this chip to take the hole.
Both agreed to carry the hole.
Phil still 1 up.
Par 3 up next.
Side bet. $100,000 closest to the pin.
As I heard someone say this would of been real interesting like 15 years ago
137 yards, hole #5
Just past the hole. 10 feet maybe.
Phil charity takes the $100,000.
Tiger will be up first. Big putt coming up for Phil. I'm sure if he birdies, he will take there hole. Tiger would need a miracle.
Tiger just over 45 feet from the hole.
Short right, just inside Phil's.
In the hole.
Phil still 1 up.
I'm taking a break. Not sure anyone following anyway. If so, I'll continue. If not, I'll post a summary later.
You're like the Jeff Gluck of golf rn.
Were you inspired to do this by Norm MacDonald by any chance? He does this sort of play-by-play on Twitter and his fans seem to enjoy it.
I'm drawn to watch Tiger play in the majors and bigger tournaments. Not sure why, as I'm not much of a golf fan, but his magnetism works on me. I'm not as enthusiastic about an exhibition stunt like this. Is my impression that Mickelson has not been playing at a high level lately accurate? But I'll turn it on, don't have anything else on at the moment.
Oh, it's PPV. Right. Never mind about me turning it on, lol.
6th hole also carried. Phil still 1 up.
Onto the 7th.
Par 5, 557 yards.
Green reachable in two.
Phil's tee shot.....
Not where he wanted but on the fairway
Perfect position for attempting the green in two.
2nd shot in the left bunker. Shy of hole.
Just off the green to the left of the hole. A good distance away.
Phil's 77 feet and in the bunker. Up 1st. Has to clear another bunker to get it on the green.
Drops into the next bunker. Hey, I golf just like Phil!
Tiger puts it next to the hole.
Phil has to hole it out if the bunker. Doesn't.
All squared through 7.
