Just after his stunning win in the US PGA Championship on Sunday, Phil Mickelson announced that he will be competing in the fourth edition of Capital One’s ‘The Match’ alongside his former partner and NFL icon Tom Brady.
Golf’s oldest big winner Mickelson, 50, and Brady will face Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers – the reigning NFL MVP – on July 6 at the spectacular Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana.

Announcing the news, Mickelson insisted that the duo should settle “ unfinished business. ”
After the announcement was made, six-time major winner Mickelson wrote on Twitter: ‘It’s game time! My partner @tombrady and I are back and ready to settle some unfinished business. See you in Montana @ AaronRodgers12 @b_dechambeau. ‘
Mickelson’s partner, Brady, was quick to start the trash talk and mocked fellow NFL quarterback Rodgers, who currently plays for the Green Bay Packers.
Brady joked: ‘Two old guys against the young money @PhilMickelson. @b_dechambeau better get used to it as we know @ AaronRodgers12 isn’t going for it. ‘
It will be the first outing for reigning US Open champions DeChambeau and Rodgers in the exhibition event – including donations to Feeding America and additional charity beneficiaries.

Rodgers, the reigning NFL MVP, is hoping to get one over his sporting rival Brady
Rodgers can hold his own on the golf course, finishing 16th at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in July 2020.
Mickelson has been a staple of the charity event since it began in 2018 – for the first time against Woods in a one-on-one match.
Lefty eventually defeated longtime rival Woods in a 22-hole match, with Mickelson earning $ 9 million in prize money in Las Vegas.
Mickelson then returned to partner Brady for the first time in a four-ball pro-am against Woods and Manning in May 2020, with the latter combination claiming victory in Florida. This event raised $ 20 million for Covid-19 relief funds.

And last November, Mickelson teamed up with former basketball player Charles Barkley against Manning and current NBA star Steph Curry.
Mickelson and Barkley were able to fend off Manning and Curry in the third edition of ‘The Match: Champions For Change’.
The third edition raised $ 6.4 million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and four million meals for Feeding America.
The fourth exhibition event in July will be broadcast live on the US network TNT, and all four players will be on the microphone the entire time.
