Broadcast in the United Kingdom - somewhat uniquely - on CNN at 8pm on Sunday, this event will see Woods and Manning pair up to take on Mickelson and Brady over fourballs on the front-nine and a "modified alternate shot" format on the back-nine, with many additional challenges - yet to be revealed - scattered throughout the round that will provide the players with an opportunity to raise even more money for the selected charities, with at least $10m to be made for COVID-19 relief efforts.

We'll keep you up to date, hole-by-hole, right here, as Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning tee up against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.

Mickelson beat Woods in a $9 million showdown in November 2018 in a one-off round designed for pay-per-view television, although it struggled to capture the imagination of the golfing world and technical issues meant it was ultimately available to watch for free.

Officers were still working hours later to contain the fire but some buildings had partially collapsed in the flames. A fire boat was used to protect the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, a liberty ship that stormed Normandy on D-Day in 1944.

The event will raise money for Covid-19 relief efforts in the United States.

Woods has won 15 golf majors and Mickelson has finished first in five. Turner Sports and Milwaukee Brewers play-by-play broadcaster Brian Anderson is getting back into the booth for The Match, Champions for Charity.

The contest will take place behind closed doors at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, one of Woods' regular practice courses, with no caddies but players allowed to drive their own golf carts. Manning's total quarterback rating in the fourth quarter of those two Super Bowl wins was twice as high as his QBR in the rest of the quarters combined, according to ESPN Stats & Info. But the good news for those without a subscription is that CNN International is on Freeview.
