Wanting to watch Tiger vs Phil? Good luck with that...

Tiger And Phil The Match

According to a report in the US, tickets will NOT be made available to the general public for next month’s $9m match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

‘The Match’ will take place on November 23 at Shadow Creek Golf Club in Las Vegas and Sin City newspaper, the Las Vegas Review Journal, is reporting that fans will be kept well and truly out.  

Instead, only “a small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be given access to the course, which is own by MGM Resorts International.

It’s not yet clear how or where the 18-hole event will be broadcast in the UK.

There are also believed to be no plans to play any of the match under floodlights, as Mickelson had previously suggested might happen.
