Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson likely to play 'The Match' in 2019, 2020

Phil Mickelson Tiger Woods The Match

That, more than a $20 pay-per-view number, seems like the most sustainable model into the future for Woods and Mickelson.

The viewing numbers for Thanksgiving weekend's $9-million, winner-take-all showdown between Woods and Mickelson haven't been released, but apparently nearly 1 million customers paid the $19.95 fee for the pay-per-view event, sources told GolfWorld.

Painfully, Turner immediately had to refund all those subscriptions.

Despite the technical difficulties with the match's live stream, Turner will bring the match back. Fortunately, the financial damage was somewhat mitigated by Capital One's title sponsorship and a handful of other backers. Mickelson won that day at Shadow Creek Golf Club, collecting the $9 million winner-take-all prize in 22 holes.

Amazon's Alexa Sent a Man 1700 Recordings From a Stranger
It reported that it was able to get in touch with the person in question via the recordings the man provided to the magazine. If you live in the United Kingdom and got someone a new Amazon Echo speaker, that might not have been the best idea.

A joint venture co-owned by Woods and Mickelson has signed a three-year deal with Turner, according to Golf World, meaning that sequels are on the way. But to keep both involved, a team showdown is "almost a certainty", said one confidant of the two men.

Per Golf World, the iterations in the next two years likely won't feature the same Woods-Mickelson one-on-one matchup we saw in 2018.

Regardless of the format, every indication is that the show will go on.
