Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson match set for November, says report

The proposed $10 million (€8.6m) winner-takes-all-match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson is set to take place in November, according to a report by ESPN.

Golf.com reported last month that the two sides were in negotiations for a "winner take all" match.

The head-to-head battle is scheduled to take place in November at Shadow Creek.

Rumours have abounded in recent weeks over a potential high-profile clash between the long-term PGA Tour rivals, with a reported winner-takes-all purse of $10million.

At Carnoustie, Masters champion Patrick Reed said it would be even more interesting if the prize money on offer was being put up by the contestants themselves.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson played together during Wednesday's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational practice round, with Tiger reportedly nipping Phil for a few casual bucks.

The online bookmaker has Woods, a 14-time major champion, at $1.67 ahead of five-time major victor Mickelson ($2.10).

Additionally, both Woods and Mickelson have agreed to be miked up for the event.

"We are still working on it", Woods said.

What followed was a much-hyped about pairing for the first two rounds at The Players in May, and it was there at TPC Sawgrass that Mickelson first floated the idea. In the piece, Mickelson said, 'It's a ridiculous amount of money. "We both like to talk smack, and we both have fun with what we're doing. We'll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable".

Both Woods, 42, and Mickelson, 48, are on the U.S. Ryder Cup selection committee and in the running to play in the event September 28-30 in France.
