Golfing legend Tiger Woods teamed up with former American football hero Peyton Manning to beat sporting counterparts Phil Mickelson and former New England Patriots record-breaking quarterback Tom Brady in a charity match which raised $20,000,000 for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States, with the legend that is Brady hitting the shot of the day by holing out from the fairway on the seventh.
It was Woods and Manning who came out on top here after holding off Mickelson and Brady in what was a highly-anticipated ‘The Match: Champions for Charity’ exhibition match at the Medalist Golf Club in Florida which originally set out to raise $10m.
However online donations helped the end result reaching $20m.
“I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton”, Woods said. “This is our arena and what we do for a living.
“I couldn’t imagine going on the field and doing what they do”, he added.
