Golf clash makes $ 20 million to fight corona | Sport

The latter, in particular, struggled for a long time with his stroke. He can do a lot better on a field with a length of 120 yards, although he made a nice birdie on the seventh hole from the fairway on Sunday.

The Match 2, as the game was called, was ravaged by rain showers hovering over the Medalist Golf Club golf course in Hobe Sound, Florida. As a result, the start of the match, which was broadcast live on television and the Internet, was already delayed 45 minutes.

Mickelson and Brady trailed three strokes halfway through The Match, but then came back. In the end, Woods and Manning stayed ahead of the duo. The foursome raised $ 20 million with the golf match to fight the corona virus.

Woods and Mickelson played the first edition of The Match in Las Vegas in November 2018. Also, no public was present. Mickelson won in the play-off on the fourth extra hole, earning 9 million dollars (approximately 8.2 million euros). Woods was left empty-handed. The money, mainly from sponsors, also went to charities at the time.

Woods and Mickelson were each other’s biggest competitors for years, barely saying a word, but that animosity has gradually turned into a friendship. Woods, good for fifteen major victories, and ‘Lefty’, five-time major winner, often practice together these days.

Brady won the Super Bowl six times as a quarterback with New England Patriots. Manning, now retired, was named the NFL’s most valuable player five times.
