Phil Beats Tiger In ‘The Match’ [VIDEO]
Score 'The Match' a win for Phil Mickelson over Tiger Woods in 22 holes. At the end of the day, Phil collects the $9-million-dollar prize.
The two golf greats were tied after 18 holes. They played the 18th hole again and were still tied. So they went to a make-shift 93-yard hole to decide it and they had to play it three times to determine the winner.
Side bets, to be paid by the golfers themselves to the other guy's favorite charity, were in play. Phil lost the $200,000 bet on the first hole but eventually won $600,000 on other side bets.
NOTE: We'll never know how many people bought the pay-per-view to watch the event. The technology broke down and Bleacher Report allowed everyone to see it for free.
