Mickelson, Brady Play Practice Round at Medalist
Phil Mickelson and former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady played a practice round at The Medalist Golf Club on Friday ahead of their match against Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods on Sunday afternoon.
PGA Tour pros Justin Thomas and Patrick Cantlay joined them for the round.
“Tom Brady and I are putting in some work before The Match. Great to be out here at The Medalist with Patrick Cantlay and Justin Thomas getting us familiar with the course where we’ll beat Tiger (again) and Peyton on Sunday,” wrote Mickelson in a tweet.
The match is set to take place on Sunday at 3 p.m. and can be seen on TNT.
All proceeds will benefit COVID-19 relief.
The competition will feature Woods and Manning vs. Mickelson and Brady, facing off in Team Match Play with a Four-Ball (Best Ball) format on the front nine and a Modified Alternate Shot format on the back nine, where each participant will tee off and then the team will play alternate shot from the selected drive.
Live coverage airing on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN will feature unprecedented access with all players having open mics throughout the entire competition, including the capability to communicate directly with other golfers and the broadcast commentators.
