CNN to show Woods-Mickelson rematch as Sky talks 'break down'

Peyton Manning zings Tom Brady with trash talk ahead of golf match

Broadcast in the United Kingdom - somewhat uniquely - on CNN at 8pm on Sunday, this event will see Woods and Manning pair up to take on Mickelson and Brady over fourballs on the front-nine and a "modified alternate shot" format on the back-nine, with many additional challenges - yet to be revealed - scattered throughout the round that will provide the players with an opportunity to raise even more money for the selected charities, with at least $10m to be made for COVID-19 relief efforts.

This will be a follow up to their clash in November 2018 as Woods, Mickelson and National Football League quarterbacks gear up to raise funds for the COVID-19 pandemic relief work when they face off at The Match: Champions for Charity on Sunday.

Sky broadcast "The Match", the first head-to-head clash between Mickelson and Woods which took place in Las Vegas in November 2018.

And now they'll be doing exactly that, but on the green - with an impending golf match, pitting them toe to toe once again (along with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson involved).


Following the return of live golf to television with the TaylorMade Driving Relief on Sunday that featured Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a skins event, we have a much more hyped event on the horizon.

Sunday's "rematch" between Woods and Mickelson will be broadcast around the world by CNN International.

The event will also include a partnership with the All In Challenge, as well as additional on-course challenges for charity.

The competition will start with nine holes of four-ball-better-ball, before switching to nine of greensome foursomes that will feature each pair selecting their best option off the tee and then taking alternate shots.
