Before we get to The Match we need to hear The Press Conference.
The latter might not be near as exciting as the former, but it’s still sure to be entertaining. There’s a lot to cover regarding the showdown between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, slated for 3 p.m. ET on Friday on pay-per-view.
While the two golf legends have discussed many parts of the event in previous interviews and press conferences, they have yet to sit down for a formal press conference with all eyes focused on them and the event at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. That happens at 4 p.m. today, and their press conference will be streamed on Bleacher Report’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, which we conveniently embedded at the bottom of this post for your viewing pleasure.
Capital One’s The Match: Tiger vs. Phil — the official title — will kick off with a pre-game show at 2 p.m. ET on Friday, one hour before The Match begins. Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe will be the host, and he’ll be joined by Charles Barkley, Pat Perez and Samuel L. Jackson.
The main event will be anchored by Ernie Johnson with Peter Jacobson and Darren Clarke providing analysis. Shane Bacon and Natalie Gulbis will be the on-course reporters.
The par-per-view price for The Match is $19.99. You can learn more about how you can watch it here.
