Tiger Phil Match: Why you should watch charity golf match

community news, Tiger Phil Match: Why you should watch charity golf match

There are two things that everybody should keep in mind about this Tiger-Peyton-Phil-Tom golf match. One is that Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning are clear favorites. Tiger is clearly a better player than Phil Mickelson right now; Tom Brady has said (perhaps kiddingly) that Peyton Manning is better than he is; Phil’s win over Tiger in last year’s Match For Millions Neither Guy Needs probably annoys Tiger just enough for him to take this seriously; and this will all take place on Tiger’s home track, Medalist in Jupiter, Fla., which he prefers to the other pro playgrounds in the area, like Bear’s Club. (For what it’s worth—perhaps nothing—I have been to Medalist once, and in the parking lot, I ran into Peyton Manning. So he knows the course, too.)

The second thing we should keep in mind: If this works, it can’t really be about golf.

We have seen Woods and Mickelson play golf a million times, for far greater stakes, and the appeal of watching Manning and Brady is limited. (Spoiler alert: They are very good golfers, but not as good as pros.) What we haven’t seen is the four of them together for four hours.

We should see Tom and Peyton teasing each other like the old friends they are. I want to see Brady pull-hook a drive and have his partner, Mickelson, ask him if he needs Bill Belichick to help him find the fairway. Woods enjoys juvenile and dirty jokes, and Manning and Brady have spent their lifetimes in locker rooms. Anything they can sneak past the Turner producers is fine with me.
