Two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history will do something today that people throughout the country routinely do, to varying degrees of success and/or failure: They’re going golfing.
Peyton Manning, teaming up with Tiger Woods, will face Tom Brady, whose partner will be Phil Mickelson. The match will raise millions for COVID-19 relief, with the participants kicking in $10 million themselves.
The teams will play a best-ball format for the front nine. Then, after a quick break, the back nine will unfold with the teammates alternating shots from the spot of the best tee shot.
Although Brady usually got the better of Manning on a football field, the consensus betting lines make Woods and Manning the clear favorites to prevail.
The match, which begins at 3:00 p.m. ET and which will be televised on four networks at once (TBS, TNT, TruTV, and Headline News) happens at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
