The pay-per-view fee for the Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods matchup has been set at a reportedly $19.99. The highly anticipated clash between the two professional golfers will take place in Las Vegas’ Shadow Creek on November 23, 2018. The golf course, owned by MGM Resorts International, will host the matchup between them, slated to take place over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Titled “The Match”, it will be available through Turner and the company’s B/R Live streaming service or platform, AT&T’s U-VERSE® and the DIRECTV® platform owned by the Dallas-based fastest internet provider itself. The winner of “The Match” will emerge richer by $9 million.

The pay-per-view TV event, where the golfers face off in a one-off match, will be also distributed to many other satellite and cable providers, comprising Verizon® and Comcast®.

Turner said, “Bleacher Report and its wildly-popular House of Highlights, which recently surpassed 10 million followers on Instagram, will offer comprehensive highlights and behind-the-scenes content. HBO Sports and its groundbreaking 18-time Sports Emmy Award-winning 24/7 reality franchise will capture all the excitement leading up to the match and Turner’s TNT will also televise programming with select content from the event in the weeks following the live competition.”

The golfers will be also able to start side challenges, like the nearest to the pin and the longest drive, for charity. Tiger Woods leads the all-time earnings list of the PGA Tour, while Phil Mickelson comes in the second place.

The world’s highest paid golfer, Tiger Woods came back from a back injury and many surgeries to win the Tour Championship back in September 2018, ending what was then a five-year long title drought. On the other hand, Phil Mickelson completed the 2018 season ranked 119th for driving accuracy out of one hundred and ninety three golfers on the PGA Tour. The second highest-paid golfer of all time has been struggling for form.

Both of them endured a difficult time playing in the prestigious Ryder Cup golf competition, which took place at Paris’ Le Golf National golf course, back in September 2018, where the Europe Team emerged victorious over the United States Team. However, that is past. Yet both of them are now back to being professionals. As they set to tee off the one-off match in LA, billions of TV audiences look forward to seeing who will emerge victorious.
