The Match: Champions for Charity was officially announced on April 22 and while we knew that it would feature Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning taking on Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady somewhere in Florida, we didn’t know much more than that.

*Dramatic music starts playing*

Until now!

According to Sports Business Daily, the competition will include a four-ball (best ball) format on the front nine and a modified alternate shot on the back nine with all four players hitting tee shots then the two teams will play alternate shots from the best drive.

Absolutely everyone was hoping to see some type of alternate shot at some point in the match. Watching Mickelson and Woods having to rely on, and likely bailout, Brady and Manning should make for some unique situations. It will also be interesting to see if Manning or Brady deliver in the clutch after any sort of wayward shots from Woods or Mickelson.

The amount of trash talking that will be going on throughout the entire day should be pretty special as well based on some of the chatter that’s been going on between the guys already.

The Match will take place on May 24 at The Medalist Golf Club, Wood’s home course, in Hobe Sound, FL. The event will begin at 3:00 PM EST and simulcast across TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN that Sunday with the Bleacher Report app taking care of all pre-match coverage.

All proceeds from the match will we going to multiple charities including Direct Relief, the American Red Cross, Save Small Business and the ALL IN Challenge.
