WOODS AND MICKELSON ARE UNDER DISCUSSION FOR A LEGENDARY REMATCH

2 prestigious golfers, which are Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, are under discussion to arrange another rematch. The rematch reward is evaluated to be around 9 million USD.

The detailed information about this rematch was unveiled during a Q&A between Phill Mickelson and his fans on Twitter on the 30th of March. An account named Chris Yurko asked: “Dear Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, have two of you ever thought about a rematch with a camera on, then livestream it for worldwide golf fans? We need to watch online sports, especially golf during these days.”

“We’re on our ways.” – Mickelson replied. Another fan tried to figure it out: “Do not tell joke to us, do you?” and Mickelson replied once again: “This is totally not a joke!” 

Before this, Mickelson used to reveal a rematch where there will be other famous sports figures, and two sportsmen which were predicted have been superstar Tom Brady and Peyton Manning of NFL.

Sports and tournaments all over the world have ceased due to Covid-19, and it’s hard to foreseen when they will be continued. If the rematch between Mickelson and Woods will become real the 2nd time, there is high possibility that this event will be held behind the doors. According to The Sun (England), the reward of this 2nd rematch will still be 9 million USD. 

The first rematch between Woods and Mickelson took place on Shadow Creek golf course in Nevada in the 23rd of November, 2018. After 18 holes, the play had been still under an indissoluble situation. The match only came to an end after the 4th round with the victory belonging to Mickelson. He was rewarded a staggering prize of 9 million USD. Besides, all of their betting money on this play, which was around 800.000 USD, was donated to charity fund.
