Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson showdown reportedly will be Thanksgiving weekend

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will reportedly face-off in a dream match

Woods, of course, is also playing in the upcoming WCG Invitational at Bridgestone over the weekend, as he looks to top his second-place finish at Valspar earlier this year.

Two of golf's titans have reportedly agreed to play a made-for-TV showdown that is rumored to have a purse of $10 million.

Woods, 42, is ranked No. 50 in the world, while Mickelson, 48, sits at No. 21.

"It's a ridiculous amount of money".

Sports Illustrated reported that the match would likely be broadcast on pay-per-view television and, according to Mickelson, both players would be willing to wear microphones during the event.

US police find 11 starving children in New Mexico compound
We all gave the kids our water and what snacks we had - it was the saddest living conditions and poverty I have seen". The sheriff says they have reason to believe the three women are the mothers of the 11 children.

The online bookmaker has Woods, a 14-time major champion, at $1.67 ahead of five-time major victor Mickelson ($2.10).

It's been well documented that these two icons of the game haven't always had a good relationship, but both have conceded they became closer at Ryder Cups over the years as they both moved in to different stages of their careers. The two played a practice round together Wednesday at Firestone, per ESPN.

Mickelson, meanwhile, brought a five-year drought on the PGA circuit to an end by winning the WGC-Mexico Championship.

"I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round", he said. "And the fact that this isn't an official tournament, that it's just a head-to-head match, you'll hear some of the little nuances, some of the little things that you don't normally pick up". "We'll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable", he said.
