Phil Mickelson is 2-1 in his three appearances in “The Match.” Can he improve to 3-1 with Tom Brady on his side, or will the duo once again fall, this time at the hands of Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers?
That’s what golf fans will want to know as the one-day event arrives.
Even without Tiger Woods available, this event is a star-studded one. Mickelson, 51, became the oldest player to win a major when he captured the PGA Championship in May. DeChambeau was in the running to repeat as U.S. Open champion in June before a brutal back nine on the tournament’s final day.
Brady and Rodgers are coming off seasons in which both took home MVP awards. Brady was the Super Bowl MVP while Rodgers was the regular-season MVP. Rodgers has a slight edge in the golf game, but Brady is certainly no slouch.
“The Match 4” should be fun for golf fans as they watch the exhibition at the never-seen-on-TV Moonlight Basin course in Big Sky, Mont. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the event.
