Better late than never? Woods, Mickelson prepare for The Match

But viewers were promised that there would be some side action during the event, and details of some of the additional bets that will play out started to emerge during a press conference on Tuesday.

Whether you're a Tiger Woods super fan, have a fondness for Big Phil or just love the game of golf, "The Match" is a once in a lifetime event that you won't want to miss - and luckily for you we'll show you how to live stream the PPV event from anywhere in the world.

"We've gone at it for over two decades", Woods said. "It's exciting for me and Phil and for viewers".

"I got back practising, grinding and getting into golf again". It's why it's on pay-per-view.

"It's like a Tuesday practice round for a significant stake that makes us uncomfortable, but with the same type of banter that we're used to that most fans aren't privy to", Mickelson said.

After a minor tantrum, North got back to work, resulting in a unique look with some dark eye shadow and freckles. Next up on the makeup list was KKW beauty's black eyeliner.

Woods and Mickelson used to be bitter rivals, but the relationship has improved in recent years as both got to know each other during Ryder Cups. But Darren Clarke, who has competed against both, expects the rivalry to intensify during the match.

"It's an insight into the game which you're normally not able to see". If people don't like it, then it's probably going to be one-and done, but I think it will go down well. The presentation will include live odds on a variety of shots, drone footage and on-course interviews with the players. Clarke said gambling has been a part of the European Tour for years and it will be interesting to see how it does Friday.

"It makes you follow along more and engage. It definitely does create a deeper and richer narrative", Barry said. That's one of the unique things about it.

Woods and Mickelson, who will both wear microphones throughout the contest along with their caddies, are confident the event will help attract fans to the sport, while being quick to refute allegations the pay-per-view event was all about money.

Woods and Mickelson, meanwhile, have been unfazed by the naysayers, and were all smiles at a pre-event press conference this week. "In fact, I'm willing to risk $100,000 that says I birdie the first hole".
