The winner-take-all-game between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson has started.
WarnerMedia says it has secured the rights to a pay-per-view event that promotes it as "The Match". It is held 18 holes between Woods and Mickelson Thanksgiving weekend at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. The winner will receive $ 9 million US.
The pay-per-view costs will be announced later.
Woods announced that the game had started in a tweet and tweeted banter with Mickelson, who only registered with a Twitter account on Wednesday.
WarnerMedia says pay-per-view coverage is distributed through Turner's B / R Live, AT & T DirecTV and U-fresh and other on-demand platforms. HBO Sports and Bleacher Report are participating in the promotion.
Woods and Mickelson make side bets during the match on things like the longest ride or closest to the pin.
