Phil Mickelson Beats Tiger Woods in $9 Million Match-Play Event

Phil Mickelson just won his $9 million match against Tiger Woods.

The two golfers took part in a highly anticipated head-to-head game on Friday afternoon (November 23) at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Phil narrowly edged out Tiger in the first time match which was close to 22 holes. Neither golfer ever led by more than one hole.

In addition to the $9 million prize, Phil also won $600,000 in charity side bets and $200,000 will go to Tiger‘s handpicked charity.

Congratulations Phil!

Earlier today, the televised match was met with some controversy as it was supposed to air on pay-per-view but experienced technical difficulties, which led to it becoming a free event. Many viewers had already paid $19.95 to watch.
