Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady And Peyton Manning Are Already Talking Trash To One Another Ahead Of Golf Match For Charity
The Match: Champions for Charity between Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning was officially announced on Wednesday, and apparently there’s already been plenty of trash talk going on.
The exact date, location, or playing format for the event has not been released thus far, but Woods has confirmed that he’ll be playing alongside Manning while Mickelson and Brady will be partners.
When you get four of the most dominant athletes of the generation together you best believe there will be some smack talk about. These four could have decided to have a checkers tournament between the four of them and they’d still take jabs at each other.
“We’ve had banter back and forth, and it’s been fantastic. But it’s typical us, it’s what we do,” Woods told Golf Digest. “We like to give out the needle, and to give out the needle you gotta be able to take it. It’s been fun, and it’ll be like that when we play, when we compete. There will be banter back and forth, but it won’t be as rough as what we have in our text exchange.”
“There has been a little bit of trash talk already, a little bit of banter back and forth. Whether it’s, ‘I might need extra caddies to carry my Super Bowls,’ because he has more Super Bowls than my partner. Or, ‘I’ve got more majors than Phil, so I’m gonna have to have a truck come up to the first tee and U-Haul it out.
The match is expected to be aired live on TNT and BR Live. The first match between Woods and Mickelson took place back in 2018 and was pay-per-view through BR Live. The rumored dates for the event are May 15 and May 24 and all proceeds from the match will go to multiple charities.
