Phil Mickelson Has Obscene Side-Bets In Mind For 'Match' With Tiger Woods

Phil Mickelson Has Obscene Side-Bets In Mind For 'Match' With Tiger Woods

Love it or loathe it, 'The Match' between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson is edging ever closer. Speaking a little under a month before this one-vs-one golfing challenge tees off, Mickelson has been discussing some of the obscene side-bets that will be going on between both American golfers.

Scheduled to take place on the Shadow Creek golf club in Las Vegas, the winner is set to receive a prize of around $9 million - a considerably higher sum than the winner of any major event can hope to receive.

What Golf Digest described as an unashamedly 'made for TV event,' there is a slight nauseating sensation to two multi-millionaires playing for such an inordinately high amount of money.

As Mickelson revealed, however, $9 million isn't even going to be the full extent of the money changing hands on November 23.


Speaking last night during a NBA between Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets, the five-time major winner opened up about the structure of the event, and some of the side action that will be going on between Woods and himself.

I think it's going to be a unique experience that we can do when we have only two players there ... we're going to mic Tiger and myself up, and because it's on pay-per-view, we're not going to have commercials.

You'll be able to hear the things that are said in between shots, and I think that's going to be interesting.

We're going to have a little bit of banter as we go head-to-head throughout, and also there's a history between us where we love to beat each other, and we've got a lot riding on it.

On the course, there's going to be lots of side-bets and challenges between Tiger and I, and there going to be between six figures and more so it's going to be very intense.

Reported elsewhere that there would be $50,000 stakes on putting challenges and longest-drives, it has at least been suggested that these side-bets will go to charities of the winning golfer's choice.


As for the $9 million, well that will seemingly stay in the pocket of whichever multi-millionaire wins this one-off round of golf.
