Love it or hate it, The Match has managed to capture the collective attention spans of both golf and non-golf media (both negatively and positively) while remaining relevant on social media amongst a busy sports schedule. That in itself is an accomplishment, but given the duo of Tiger and Phil; arguably the two most famous golfers of all time, it should come as no surprise that if any golfers were to garner attention on Thanksgiving weekend without crashing into a fire hydrant, these two would be involved.
But for those ragging on the event or yelling from the rooftops about how much of a farce this whole thing is, well, I’ve got some advice: just don’t watch. I know it’s easy to complain about anything and everything these days, but for those of us who would pay to watch Tiger Woods literally do anything (eat, sleep, brush his teeth, you name it) just enjoy your Friday afternoons with the family while we ignore ours and fawn over a mic’d up Woods. After all, were talking about golf in November here. Thank you.
With Phil and Tiger kicking off the betting during their presser yesterday, I figured there was no time like the present to check into the prop bets being offered for Friday afternoon. Much like before the Super Bowl, I was hoping for some creative props; the weirder, the better. Here are my favourites, along with the ones I’d actually consider risking my own hard-earned money on.
