It’s has been six weeks without play for golfers since The PGA Tour’s Champion was shut down on March 13 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
However, Phil Mickelson has been proficiently practicing ahead of the Sunday’s play-off Match. Mickelson will be teaming up with Tom Brady to face up Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning.
The event will be staged at Medalist Golf Club, a private gem in Hobe Sound, Florida, which is also the home course for Tiger Woods. This match will be played for Champions for Charity and is set to raise at least $10 million relief for combating this COVID-19 pandemic.
Mickelson is full of himself and can’t wait to take down Tiger and Peyton. For Tiger, showing up at his home course will always have a bad memory. In a phone call, Mickelson said that Tiger shouldn’t think he has a huge advantage playing there because he was insistent that this event is played on his home course.
Mickelson, who has never played Medalist, will be the first to tell you that his longtime rival has gotten the best of him much more often than not.
The competition starts with nine holes of four-ball play (best ball) and then switches to nine holes of a modified alternate shot. On the back nine, all four will tee off on each hole, and each team will select the best option and alternate shots from there.
Mickelson added that he had played a few times with Tom, and he has seen him hit some astonishing shots. His strength is that he is an excellent putter, hits the ball longways, and good with his short irons.
Mickelson said that he thinks they will have a chance on the back-nine modified alternate-shot platform if he can get the ball in play.
Brady and Manning alternate-shot will put a lot of unique pressure on them. It will make the play to be so much fun because they will be mishaps and have some bad shots, and they will laugh at themselves.
All four of them will be Mic’d up, with each riding in their own cart, and there will be no caddies or spectators.
Mickelson thinks having Peyton there will be a big part because he gives him and Tom somebody to rough up. When he returns at you, Peyton does it in a funny way that elicits laughter from you as opposed to a defensive response.
Mickelson will fly to Florida on Thursday, and he will do so with his usual confidence. He stated that he had played a lot in the last two weeks to practice for The PGA Tour’s Champion.
He added that he had played 36 each of the previous three days, and he has been having a blast playing golf. Even though Mickelson hasn’t played competitively in a while, he can work on his game, and he is also pretty optimistic that he is going to play very well.
