A feasible rematch in between Tiger Woods as well as Phil Mickelson could additionally include an additional set of top-level celebrities, albeit from an additional sporting activity.

Brady recently joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after spending his entire National Football League career - 20 seasons - with the New England Patriots, winning six of the nine Super Bowls he achieved.

While Mickelson hauled away the $9 million by defeating Woods on the 22nd hole in the November match, all money raised from the second event would benefit charities associated with coronavirus relief. The suit would certainly be revealed on "regular Turner programming", with marketing earnings mosting likely to charity, in contrast to pay-per-view, the circulation alternative selected for the initial suit which brought about mass reimbursements.

The PGA Tour released a declaration Tuesday, mentioning, "Discussions along these lines have been ongoing for quite some time, but nothing has been approved by the Tour".

With coronavirus social distancing measures implemented in 2020, CNBC also reports that the match will strictly follow all guidelines, including the crowd, a skeleton production team and the four golfers who are kept six feet apart throughout the event.

Mickelson was asked recently on Twitter about the chances of another round of golf against Woods being streamed live in the near future, and he replied: "Working on it".

"Please don't tease", another fan wrote Sunday. "I'm kinda a sure thing".

Mickelson, 49, finished third in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in early February and missed the cut in his next two starts before his season was also put on ice.

To offer the people a sporting event to rally around - especially after the cancellations of the F1, NBA, nearly all soccer, world tennis, even a postponed Olympics, etc. - Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are reportedly in the final stages of making that long awaited rematch happen.

While the proposed charity event will help to lighten the mood in a hard period for the sport, there are likely to be more painful decisions on the horizon.
