The Match 2 Is Today!

A reminder so you don't miss the Tiger/Phil rematch today, officially named The Match: Champions for Charity.

Tiger, Ernie Johnson of TNT and Phil

It's Tiger and Peyton Manning versus Phil and Tom Brady, playing at the Medalist Club in Florida. According to Golfweek:
The first nine holes of the match will be in a four-ball format followed by a modified alternate shot format on the back nine in which each golfer will tee off then each team will play alternate shot from the selected drive.
Not being mentioned as much but equally interesting to me is that Justin Thomas will be doing the on-course commentary. And he told Scott Van Pelt on ESPN's SportsCenter that he would indeed be talking trash with them as the round progresses. Given that he knows all but Peyton pretty well, this should be a very entertaining part of the match and I give TNT props for coming up with it.

According to CBS Sports, the full team will include Brian Anderson, Charles Barkley, Trevor Immelman, Justin Thomas and Amanda Balionis. They also say that the event will be broadcast on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN, plus (if you can't get it on one of those channels) you can watch it for free on fuboTV. There's a link for that in the CBS article as well.

The TNT broadcast starts at 3pm ET today. Don't miss it!


  1. A far more important match is going on as I write this at the Sky72 Resort in Incheon, South Korea: the Hyundai Card Super Match between world #1 Jin Young Ko and world #3 Sung Hyun Park. The 18 hole skins game will benefit COVID-19 relief. Park is coming off a MC at last week's KLPGA Championship, but that's 2 more competitive rounds than Ko has played in 2020.
