NEW YORK — Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are getting ready for another made-for-TV match, this time with friends from the NFL.

Woods and Peyton Manning take on Mickelson and Tom Brady in what's being billed as “The Match: Champions for Charity.”

It will be the second straight Sunday live golf is on TV.

The purpose is to raise $10 million for COVID-19 relief efforts and to provide entertainment.

Another big appeal is seeing golf's biggest star on TV again.

Woods was last seen on Feb. 16 at Riviera when he shot weekend rounds of 76 and 77 and finished last at the Genesis Invitational.
