Per Action Network:

A Turner Sports spokesperson confirmed to The Action Network the match will be aired live on TNT with surrounding content on Bleacher Report. It’s unclear the exact date, but rumored dates are May 15 and May 24. All proceeds from the event will go to COVID-19 relief.

The matchup is believed to be Tiger and Peyton, who are both Nike spokesmen, against Phil and Brady. It will be called “The Match: Champions for Charity,” according to sources.

A PGA TOUR official told The Action Network’s Jason Sobel that Tiger and Phil would need to receive a “release form for them to play a televised or streamed event in the U.S.”

The course has yet to be finalized, but at least we know we’ll be getting some live golf content next month.

Update: We now know all the details for the match. The event will be held Sunday, May 24th at 3 pm ET at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida (Tiger’s home course). It will be broadcast across various Turner platforms including TNT, TBS, and TruTv and the format will be 9 holes of best ball and 9 holes of modified alternate shot.
