Phil Mickelson was a stalwart of The Match franchise. He played Tiger Woods in the original at the Wynn in Las Vegas — where he was victorious. He partnered with Tom Brady but lost to Woods and Peyton Manning in the second edition. Mickelson then paired with Charles Barkley and beat Steph Curry and Manning. However, in Match IV, he and Brady lost to Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau.
If you’re scoring at home, that makes him 2-2. Not awful.
However, due to his move to LIV Golf, his career with the made-for-TV series is over, according to the executive producer.
Despite this, he’s ready to tune in.
He took to Twitter to tell his followers he’s excited to watch and that it’ll “be a fun, funny and insightful version,” and he’s “wishing Tiger, Rory, JT, and Jordan all the best.”
I’m proud to have been a part of the creation of The Match. Today will be a fun,funny and insightful version and I’m wishing Tiger,Rory,JT,and Jordan all the best. I’ll be watching it on TNT and I hope you will too.
