Despite Rory McIlroy’s hot form and world number one, it’s been a while since we’ve seen him play Tiger Woods (he missed out on The Open Championship) and he’s probably the weakest link of the four at the moment. As such, the pairing is listed as a +100 minor underdog.

When will the match take place?

The match takes place on Saturday, December 10th at 6:00 PM ET, with live coverage of the event on TNT.

Where is the match taking place?

The match takes place at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida. The course plays 70 Par up to 7,000 yards and was built with Donald Ross’ original design in mind. The course is also hosting the Women’s Pelican Tournament (November 10-13 this year).

What is the format of the match?

The formula hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s expected to be the ultimate (shy) ball game.
