The Match returns for a seventh addition on Saturday from Belleair, Fla., where four prolific golfers will be competing to raise money for Hurricane Ian relief efforts.
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will team up against fellow major champions Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas in what figures to be an entertaining battle under the lights. Despite Woods’ mystique, Spieth and Thomas are slight favorites.
Woods is ready to try his hand at The Match despite dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He told reporters this week that he’ll be driven around by a golf cart but is otherwise good to go.
The Match has become must-see TV each time it airs for not just the golf, but the banter/trash talking. That will continue to be true even without any NFL quarterbacks in this iteration.
