Stan Badz/PGA TOUR
The golf match pitting Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady will officially take place on Sunday, May 24.
The match, which will be played at Medalist Golf Club in Florida, will raise $10 million for COVID-19 relief efforts. The quartet will play Best Ball on the front 9 and a modified alternate shot on the back 9 (each player tees off and then it will be alternate shot after the preferred drive is selected).
DraftKings is an official partner, so you can be sure that betting will be central to the broadcast and the conversation, as all four players will be mic’d up.
Here are the odds as of Thursday, May 7, plus all the info you need to know for The Match.

While FanDuel and DraftKings operate their online sportsbooks in Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and West Virginia, the only states currently allowing betting on this match are Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Expect the three others to follow suit shortly.
FanDuel’s odds imply that Tiger and Peyton have a 68.7% chance of winning.
That’s certainly an interesting line, considering Manning and Brady are close to even as golfers (Peyton has a slightly better handicap), and Tiger was recently struggling with some back issues.
But Woods, who skipped the PLAYERS Championship in March, recently said he would’ve been healthy enough to compete in the Masters had it not been postponed.
Mickelson and Woods played one another in a one-day, head-to-head match on November 23, 2018 at the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mickelson defeated Woods in what was a the first major U.S. sporting event that showed live betting odds on a national TV telecast.
The PGA TOUR has been on hiatus since March 12 amid the coronavirus pandemic. The TOUR announced it was planning to return on June 11 at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
