Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady couldn’t get it done as partners the first time in The Match, but the two are back and opened as betting favorites against newcomers Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers.
On Wednesday, The PGA TOUR and Capital One announced the latest iteration of The Match, which has evolved since its inception featuring Mickelson vs. Tiger Woods. The fourth installment of the competition will pit Mickelson and Brady against DeChambeau and Rodgers, with Mickelson and Brady opening as -130 betting favorites at Stations in Las Vegas. DeChambeau and Brady come back at +110 underdogs.
Mickelson and Brady were first partners when The Match became a team event, losing to Woods and Peyton Manning. Mickelson then pulled off an upset at The Match III with partner Charles Barkley against Manning and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. Mickelson and Barkley were +138 underdogs at DraftKings.
Mickelson is riding high off his PGA Championship win, and the banter between Manning and Rodgers should add to the entertainment value of the match. It will be even more interesting if Rodgers’ relationship with the Green Bay Packers has not resolved by then.
The event is scheduled for Tuesday, July 6 in Montana. It will take place in between the Rocket Mortgage Classic and the John Deere Classic. Brady has already done his part to promote the event with several tweets mocking the latest “Bryson vs. Brooks” feud and tying in Rodgers.
The Match will be aired on TNT. It is slated to be a modified alternate shot format. Multiple charities will be involved.
