    Four enormous names in the world of sports are coming together on the golf course to compete in the Champions For Charity match this Sunday at 3p.m.. I'm super excited for this one. On one hand we have team Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and on the other we have Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. This matchup is great and should be super fun to watch.

    This match is actually a followup to the 2018 'The Match' which featured Tiger Woods vs. Mickelson in which after 18 holes the two ended up in an even tie. They then went on to a tiebreaker that Mickelson eventually won. Unlike the first match, this new matchup will be split up into teams for a 2v2 style match, Brady/Mickelson vs. Woods/Manning. The first one had a total purse of $9 million that went to the winner's charity, while this year's match will have a $10 million dollar purse donated to charity relief foundations.

    I'm really curious who will win this one. If it were just Woods and Mickelson again I'd think Mickelson would take the win again, purely from looking at the history of it. Though this time we have two NFL quarterbacks in the game. I think it's pretty well known that Tom Brady is a pretty avid golfer. I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up holding his own and surprising a lot of people. Peyton Manning on the other hand has been known to be pretty mediocre at the game, some would even go as far as to call him bad.

    Either way, all proceeds go to charity so who really cares who actually wins? I'm just hoping for a fun match.

    Should be really fun to watch. So what's the handicap of Manning and Brady, do you know?

    $20 million raised. That's pretty awesome. Seems like Peyton had the upper hand here. Though Brady had probably the best single shots of the day between the two.
