Sports will be brought back briefly by some of its most legendary rivals.
A golf match featuring Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, is in the final stages of planning, and likely to take place between May 15 and May 24, according to The Action Network. All proceeds from “The Match: Champions for Charity,” which is scheduled to air on TNT, will benefit coronavirus relief efforts.
The location of the one-day event has not been determined — a source told The Action Network that Woods’ local course, Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., is the front-runner — nor has the format of the match, which is expected to pit Woods and Manning against Mickelson and Brady.
The event could be held on Memorial Day weekend, according to ESPN.
“It’s on now,” Phil Mickelson wrote on Twitter.
“There was talks about doing it all along anyway,” Manning told 104.3 The Fan in Denver Wednesday concerning speculation about the event before it was announced. “And now, to have a chance to have a major fundraising event for COVID-19 relief, almost like a telethon if you will … If that can take place, I’m all in for that.”
