The Match returns under the bright lights on Saturday, but there won’t be any NFL quarterbacks involved this time.
Instead, Tiger Woods will be in action alongside Rory McIlroy as the duo of world-class golfers faces fellow major champions Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
The four golfers are coming together in Belleair, Fla. for a great cause, as the event will raise money for Hurricane Ian relief efforts. That means the winning pair won’t get to take home any prize money, but it will be tough to argue with the bragging rights that will come out of this star-studded matchup.
Despite McIlroy’s recent success, Spieth and Thomas enter as slight favorites. Woods is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his foot and had to skip last week’s Hero World Challenge, which may be creating some skepticism ahead of the event.

The last two iterations of The Match were held at Wynn Golf Club in Nevada, but the golfers will play under the lights in Belleair, Florida this time around.
The location is poignant with the event benefiting victims of Hurricane Ian, as Belleair is along the same coast that was directly hit by the storm further south.
