'The Match' was most-watched golf telecast in cable TV history

Champions for Charity Golf Event Brings in $20 Million for COVID-19 Relief

The Match also became the topic of conversation across social media platforms, as well.

Brady was determined to get any advantage he could over Manning in this one, and Brady took shots at Manning's alma mater during the game.

The former pro golfer tweeted that she very almost offered to get an "Only Fans" account (a very X-rated site) if Brady made a par. After taking a penalty stroke on the par-5 seventh, he hit a 100-yard wedge shot that curled into the hole for a birdie.

"Thank God I didn't do that", Spiranac tweeted.

The peak was 6.3 million average viewers from 5:45 to 6pm EST.

Capitalizing on the dearth of live sports amid the coronavirus crisis, and perhaps Tom Brady's split trousers, Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning's victory over Phil Mickelson and the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback scored the largest golf audience in cable history on Sunday.

The 42-year-old football player and golf legend Phil Mickelson teamed up against Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning during the charity golf event on Sunday afternoon (May 24) in Hobe Sound, Fla.

"Knowing $20 million was raised and helping people going through tough times, it was an honour to be invited", Manning said. "It was an honor to be invited to this, and it's something I will always remember and cherish". Even Charles Barkley, who was an analyst for the event and is a notoriously poor golfer, was getting in on the ribbing of TB12.

"That's why you're the goat", Barkley responded.
