Tiger Woods will play Phil Mickelson for $10 million in November.

In an epic showdown, American golfing icons Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play a $10 million winner-take-all showdown at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend in November. 

Tiger Wood and Phil Mickelson rank No.1 and No.2 on the PGA all-time money list, with Woods at $112.2m. He the only player over $100m mark, with Mickelson in second with $87.6m in career earnings. 

The two have a combined 19 majors and 121 PGA tour victories. Woods’ last major victory was a decade ago, in the 2008 U.S. Open. Mickelson's last major victory was in the 2013 Open Championship. 

Tiger Woods looks to be in the better form leading up to the match against Phil Mickelson. Tiger was leading the Open Championship on Sunday afternoon before shooting a final round 71 to finish T6. He has Top 10 finishes at Quicken Loans National, Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Valspar Championship this year. 

Phil Mickelson hasn’t had a top-10 finish since finishing fifth in the Wells Fargo Championship. Three tour starts prior he won the World Golf Championships - Mexico, defeating young-gun Justin Thomas in a playoff. That win broke a five-year winning drought for Mickelson, a stretch of 101 tournaments worldwide. 

Golfing legend Tiger Woods is favourite for the $10million showdown with Phil Mickelson according to Sportsbet.

“What a great heads-up match this promises to be, with two legends of the game battling it out for a huge purse. Neither player needs the money, but both are fierce competitors and with Woods back in form he deserves the favourite tag,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
