Report: Mickelson says $10M match with Woods in the works
NEW YORK (AP) — Golf.com is reporting that Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are contemplating a $10 million winner-take-all exhibition match.
The report says Mickelson was hopeful the match would have taken place on July 3 in Las Vegas, except that negotiations with a television network and corporate support could not be worked out in time.
Mickelson says they are working on a different date.
Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, declined to comment on the report.
Woods was involved in made-for-TV exhibitions some 15 years ago. They evolved from singles matches with David Duval and Sergio Garcia to team matches, one of them a mixed team exhibition. Mickelson was part of just one of those matches.
Mickelson playfully hinted at such a match when he and Woods were in the same group at The Players Championship.
