On Friday, Nov. 23, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will make history. The two biggest stars of their generation will face off in their first ever head-t0-head, winner-take-all match, with $9 million on the line.
It’s also the first live pay-per-view event in golf history, offering four hours of commercial-free action.
“The Match” begins at 3 p.m. EST/12 p.m. PST and will be played at the ultra-luxe Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas.
Both Tiger and Phil will be mic’d up for the entire event, and B/R Live is also promising that there will be side wagers happening throughout, like long-drive challenges and closest-to-the pin contests, with the money going to the charity of the winner’s choice.
And if you’re hoping to get a piece of the action too, B/R Live is offering an opportunity to get involved: You can play the “Pick’em Challenge: Capital One’s The Match” hole-by-hole during the event. According to the wesbite, the goal is to make predictions and build a streak. Picking a perfect match will win $1 million, and the overall points leader will win an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas.

So how can you watch The Match?
Bleacher Report Live, AT&T’s DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse and other cable, satellite and other telecommunication service providers will offer the match for $19.99.
Some caveats to consider: if you want to be able to watch The Match after the live event concludes, make sure you purchase it on B/R Live before play begins and you will be able to watch the replay for 48 hours afterward.
Also: the platform on which you purchase The Match is the only platform you’ll be able to use to watch it. So, if you purchase the match from your cable provider, you can only watch it via cable, and won’t be able to access it on a streaming app.
