Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will team up to take on Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth next month in the latest version of Capital One’s The Match.
First reported by the Fried Egg, the group of major champions were announced on Monday and will play a 12-hole competition Saturday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. ET under the lights at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida, host to this week’s LPGA stop, the Pelican Women’s Championship. McIlroy, Spieth and Thomas will make their Match debut, while Woods will make his third appearance.
The previous six versions of The Match have raised nearly $33 million for charity and donated more than 27 million meals through Feeding America. Next month’s Match will benefit Hurricane Ian relief efforts.
