Golf is continuing to come back to its feet following a prolonged break due to COVID-19 pandemic. On Sunday, Tiger Woods will be teaming up with Peyton Manning to lock horns against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in what will be a two-on-two charity match. 

This will be a follow up to their clash in November 2018 as Woods, Mickelson and NFL quarterbacks gear up to raise funds for the COVID-19 pandemic relief work when they face off at The Match: Champions for Charity on Sunday. 

The 18-hole made for television clash will be held at Woods’ home course at the Medalist Golf Club in Florida. Woods would be hoping to hit some form after the 15-time major winner returned with a disappointing 68th-place finish at the Genesis Invitational.

Mickelson had struggled earlier this and missed the cut in four of his five tour appearances before being victorious in his head-to-head match with Woods 18 months back. 

Both Manning and Brady have not hyped their golf skills. While Manning last played with Woods at the 2005 Bay Hill Pro-Am and the 2009 Quail Hollow Championship, Manning has enjoyed his life on the course since retiring from NFL in 2016. 

While the level of play in Sunday’s match may not be the best, but fans are eager to watch the iconic Woods in action.
