The build-up to The Match has intensified in the days leading up to the event. Both Woods and Mickelson arrived in Las Vegas early in the week and held a press conference on Tuesday. That led to plenty of humorous moments as well as some smack talk.
There were also a series of attention-grabbing photos taken in the lead-up to The Match. Two released on Wednesday featured Mickelson and Woods posing with a large pile of money. The two also agreed on the first side-bet of the week: Mickelson will win $200,000 if he birdies the first hole.
Who did it better?
