The Tiger-Phil Match, Now Confirmed

I was going to write about the LPGA playing the Women's Canadian Open, or maybe the first FedExCup Playoff event. But no, I can't ignore the new details on "The Match," so here's what we have so far, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The article is short and to the point. It says:
  • 18 holes of match play on the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 23), to be played at the Shadow Creek course in Las Vegas.
  • $9mil prize, winner take all. In addition, the two will make side bets during the match on things like who hits the longest drive or hits it closest to the pin.
  • Woods announced that it was "on" in a tweet, which started some exchanges between him and Phil, who finally started his own Twitter account on Wednesday.
  • It will be a pay-per-view event. WarnerMedia has the rights, cost to be announced later.
  • About the availability of the pay-per-view, WarnerMedia said " coverage will be distributed through Turner's B/R Live, AT&T DirecTV and U-verse, and other on-demand platforms. HBO Sports and Bleacher Report will take part in the promotion."
That's all pretty simple, right?

I'm sure there will be more coming out over the next few months leading up to the event, so get ready for the media blitz.
