I live in Canada, and Friday isn’t a “Holiday” up here, but I’m taking a vacation day and plan on watching. For those of you unaware it’s a PPV event, 18 holes of golf winner takes all with a $9 Million dollar prize. They will also be doing impromptu side bets between each other during the round. And apparently Phil, Tiger and their caddies will be mic’d the whole time.
I’m still a big Tiger fan, I believe he revolutionized the game with his fitness and practice regime. But don’t get me wrong if Tiger never was, I can almost guarantee another young buck would have come along and did the same for the game (don’t know if they would have been quite so dominating).
Anyway, I was glad to see hints of the “old Tiger” this season. I fully believe Tiger will destroy Phil. 8 months ago, I would probably have given the edge to Phil because of how crappy Tiger had been playing, but he seems to be hitting his stride while Phil is starting to slip.
I saw today they already made their first side bet. Phil bet $100k that he would birdie the first hole, Tiger said lets double that! So already there is a $200k side bet on the first hole!
