The Open Winners – Former Victors Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson to Play on PPV
Over the weekend, we heard news about the upcoming super-match between former winners of The Open: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
The 23rd November golf spectacular, simply dubbed “The Match” will see past Champion Golfers Woods and Mickelson face off one-on-one with a winner takes all prize fund of $9m (£7m). The event will take place in Las Vegas.
The Match between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods will see a Pay Per View price tag of $19.99 (about £15), if the price for UK audiences is the same as announced for the United States – a price worth paying to see two greats of international golf tee off.
Woods is the only player in history to hold all four majors simultaneously – the American is perhaps the most popular and successful golfer, not just of his generation but of all time. In terms of career earnings, Phil Mickelson comes in second place – earning $87m to Woods’ $112m in career winnings – and a notable chunk of both players winnings have come from championship wins at The Open.
Both players have been staple golfers on both sides of the Atlantic. Phil Mickelson has golfed at The Open twenty-five times over his career – making his first appearance at the British major at Royal Birkdale in 1991. He won The Open in 2013 at Muirfield, taking home the Claret Jug and the title of Champion Golfer. Tiger Woods, who has appeared at The Open twenty times himself, is no newcomer to the golf tournament, either. He won back-to-back Opens in 2005 (St Andrews) and 2006 (Royal Liverpool), as well as taking home Championship Golfer at St Andrews in 2000.
