Talk about star power. This Sunday, four sports legends will play 18 holes to support Covid-19 charities.
There’s not a marquee big enough to hold these legendary names. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will tee off Sunday, May 24 in The Match: Champions for Charity at Medalist Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, Tiger’s home course.
This awesome foursome—Mickelson and Brady vs. Woods and Manning, with the NFL stars as the “amateurs”—hopes to raise at least $10 million for charity.

Lefty Talks Trash
Mickelson has already set the tone for this match, telling Golfweek, “I can’t wait to go to Tiger’s place and take him down. Tiger thinks he has a huge advantage playing there, because he was insistent that this event is played on his home course. That’s fine. We’ll take it to him and Peyton.
“There will be no excuses,” Lefty ranted. “We’ll make it that every time Tiger shows up at his home course, he’ll have a bad memory.”
But talk is cheap. Woods and Manning are -210 moneyline favorites (risk $210 to win $100) in the current odds. Mickelson and Brady are the underdogs, going off at +170 (risk $100 to win $170) at WilliamHill.com.
