"Hey Phil, doesn't your mom work at Perkins?"

Meh.  If they were one and two in the world rankings, OK.  If they're both long past contending on tour, and it's a nostalgia match, OK.  But right now, they're a couple of players who are still competing on tour, but with mixed results at best.  Phil's having a pretty good year, but he's still struggling to stay in the world top 20, and Tiger is struggling to get into the world top 50.

Yeah, I'll watch, but only because there's nothing else good on TV.

I don't know how much Tiger is really struggling to get into the top 50.  Take away the artificial 40 in the OWGR formula and he would be ranked in the top 20.  So he is not top 50 de jure, but he is certainly is top 20 de facto.

Right. Tiger's ranking is low because he missed a lot of events.

if it comes to be I'd certainly watch. But, I think it would be more interesting if they put up their own money! Phil is notorious for this in practice rounds, saying he can't get jazzed for the round unless there's a little something, something on the line!

Well, put up 10 Mill, Phil, and let's see how jazzed up you get! And it wouldn't have to be that much, even though both can afford it. Whatever sum they would agree upon would be donated by the winner to the charity of their choice!

And as far as miking them up, I'm all for it! Remember the "Battle at Bighorn"? As Tiger and Annika walk from the first green to the second tee, Tiger says, "Boy! Did we hack the shit out of that hole, or what?!"

Yep - I was skimming through all the responses, thinking the exact same thing, seeing if anyone else had the same idea. As others have also said, this is 10 years too late and right now, just a made for TV moneymaker for both of them. I think the winner take all part is B.S. Put up your own money guys and have at it.

That being said, I'll probably watch. Then again, I watched Geraldo opening up Al Capone's safe. Somehow this all feels the same.

They’re partnering together to own a business. Their match will just kick it off.

At least from Tiger's words, they really developed a friendship when Phil reached out to Tiger when he was hurt. I will tune for this patch. I like the idea of these 1v1 matches.

Sounds cool, would probably watch it after the fact, not sure I'd tune in live. I really don't watch much golf anymore. I'll pull up a live stream during the majors or on pgatour live sometimes, but I really don't follow the PGA all the much in recent years. That said, listening to their banter during the round would probably be the coolest thing about it.

No. The business IS setting up and owning these types of matches.
