Mickelson vs. Tiger ... $10 million match

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson joked in May about playing head-to-head for a large sum of money ... That might become a reality. Golf.com reports that the two are planning a $10 million match after the initial target date of July 3 didn’t work out.


Two months ago, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson engaged in some lighthearted trash-talk about a potential high-stakes, winner-take-all match. Now it appears this will become a reality.

The report states that the match was nearly booked for July 3 in Las Vegas, but never came to fruition.

“We’re working on a different date,” Mickelson told Golf.com. “I thought it was done for the 3rd, but obviously it wasn’t.”

The idea of a head-to-head match was first proposed during the lead-up to The Players Championship in May.

Asked about competing alongside Woods during the first two rounds of that event, Mickelson didn’t hold back.

“The excitement that’s been going on around here, it gets me thinking,” he said during his pre-tournament news conference. “Why don’t we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match. Now, I don’t know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it.”

Woods, of course, was later informed of this idea — and didn’t hold back.

“First of all, big picture,” he said with a smile. “How many times have we both won on the PGA Tour?”

For the record, Woods’ odometer has been stuck on 79 wins for the past five years, while Mickelson notched his 43rd earlier in 2018.


Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook oddsmaker Jeff Sherman ...

Tiger would be a slight favorite in this match at -125


In May, Tiger discussed a potential match with his longtime rival and a player with whom he’s formed a kinship with later in their careers.

“I’m definitely not against that,” Woods offered. “We’ll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable.”

Woods’ comment may have been a not-so-subtle dig at Mickelson’s usual retort about money matches with fellow players, of which he says they play for “enough to make you interested, but not enough to make you uncomfortable.”

Competing for $10 million should keep both parties interested.

By comparison, this year’s Masters Tournament had a full purse of $11 million, with winner Patrick Reed receiving just less than $2 million.

Woods and Mickelson are the two all-time leading money-winners on the PGA Tour — Woods has earned $111,878,724, while Mickelson has cashed $87,517,908.

And of course, those figures don’t include endorsement deals or other off-course revenue.

Phil must need the $$ to pay off his gambling debts.

This golf match is so 2008...I believe that was the last year Eldick won a major...I'd rather see Bart Simpson go toe-to-toe against Todd Flanders in the putt-putt golf tournament (circa 1990)!

No risk / high reward ... no way the $10 mil is coming out of either Phil or Tiger's pocket.

Even with it being 10 years too late it will still draw tons of attention ... It will also be a massive handle for the books attracting many huge bets.

Only way this is enticing is if they're allowed to hit the ball while it's still rolling.

If not, then yawn.

Tiger will get 90% of the TV coverage, Phil will get 10%.

Just like a regular tournament.

Tiger will be a moderate favourite, unless something major happens between now and then

Current lines for this matchup, as of noon ET on Aug. 2


BetOnline: Woods -130, Mickelson +110

Bookmaker: Woods -145, Mickelson +135

Westgate: Woods -130, Mickelson +110 (posted above)


BetOnline is right in line with Westgate, offering Tiger as a -130 favorite. However, Bookmaker is up to -145, meaning it’s currently offering the best price for Mickelson at +135.

Bookmaker, which attracts heavy sharp action due to its high limits, is also taking $10,000 wagers on this prop compared to BetOnline’s limit of $500.

Based on this, we can conclude that professional bettors have placed large wagers on Tiger, which is why his price is 15 cents higher at BookMaker than it is anywhere else.


One important note ... Anyone considering betting this matchup should be sure to check the specific rules of the wager. For example, BetOnline will still consider the wager action as long as it takes place anytime in 2018.

I never bet Tiger but did play him at -130 a couple weeks ago (posted in
Tiger is Back thread)

Even before Phil started to fall apart and Tiger started to turn it on, IMO it will be fixed regardless for Woods to win ... This exhibition win will give him another big push trying to portray him as a huge threat in 2019. I also believe his odds are going to continue to climb.


I am also not ruling out Tiger to withdraw for some reason ...
