Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are apparently here to save us from the dog days of summer. This morning, after some speculation in recent months, Golf.com reported that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have been planning a winner-take-all match play round for 10 MILLION (just for reference…the winner of the Masters gets $2 million) that was supposed to take place on July 3rd but fell through.
That doesn’t mean this thing isn’t happening. Even though the July 3rd date fell through, they are still working on getting it done for another date.

Golf.com – The greatest match that never was almost took place on July 3 in Las Vegas, a prime-time TV special that was to have pitted Tiger Woods against Phil Mickelson in a $10 million winner-take-all, 18-hole death match. The negotiations, involving a major television network and various corporate entities, couldn’t quite be consummated in time but Woods and Mickelson and their people remain committed to making it happen as soon as it’s feasible. “We’re working on a different date,” Mickelson said on Thursday. “I thought it was done for the 3rd but obviously it wasn’t.” Woods’s representatives declined to comment.

At this year’s Players, a month after the Masters, Wood and Mickelson were paired together and Phil said, “The excitement that’s been going on around here, it gets me thinking: Why don’t we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stakes, winner-take-all match. Now, I don’t know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round.”
By then negotiations were well under way for the match so Woods was happy to play along, saying, “I’m definitely not against that. We’ll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable.”

So this is almost assuredly happening sometime soon. Tiger is one of the most competitive people to walk this planet and Phil is everything but a degenerate gambler, so I have very little worries. If it was almost a done deal this week, I can’t imagine they are too far away from making it a reality. Also, it doesn’t matter how rich these two guys are, 10 million dollars is a whole lot of dough, and a head-to-head match between these two who have been constantly linked throughout their careers would be AWESOME television. Ratings through the roof. I think you could even put it on PPV and people would still be all over it. Not to mention the social media aspect of this. Twitter is going to be on fire that day.
