The match will be played Nov. 23 in Las Vegas at Shadow Creek. The purse for the winner-take-all match will be $9 million. It will be produced by Turner Sports and broadcast on pay-per-view. Pricing has not been determined.

Mickelson said the format will be traditional match play, although he added that there will be “in-play” competitions between the two, like closest to the pin or longest drive. The two players, as well as their caddies, will also be wearing microphones throughout the match.

“It allows us to be a little bit more real, if you will,” Mickelson said. “We think there will be some pretty good interest, but we’re also trying to present it in a way that you don’t get to see with normal TV.

“With only two guys, we should have a totally different experience with fans, because we will have smaller crowds that won’t necessarily have ropes they can walk inside the fairway and up near the greens. The idea is not just to have this great match, but to have this interactive experience so fans can see something they’ve never seen in televised golf before.”

Organizers are trying to decide on the size of the crowd that will be allowed to be on the course. They are also looking at allowing the event to be played into the early evening, ending around 8 or 9 p.m. (PT) which would mean the last few holes would likely be played under lights

Maybe they'll go full retro and have Ernie v Retief on the undercard. No idea why anyone would pay to watch 2 guys you can watch week in week out in competition playing a practice round for a few quid they've probably already carved up in the locker room.

You think Hank?  I don't really see it- PPV in other sports is for big events, but this is just a daft money game.  Why would anyone pay just to watch the rich get richer?

Exactly X.  Guaranteed they will spend 4 hours chatting about how great their sponsors all are.  The whole thing is a stupid cash grab rather than an attempt to do something new or grow the game, hopefully viewers roundly reject it.

Phil's won $300,000 on two bets, while Tiger's won $200,000 on one bet.
Now it's ONE MILLION (the term SIDE SAUCE from Phil) - betting $1,000,000 on holing it from the fairway on the 9th hole !

You must stay at an MGM hotel to play Shadow Creek...Only two foursomes of $500-paying MGM hotel guests get out on the course each Monday through Thursday...The rest of the time it's invitees only.
