Just one week after golf made a triumphant return to TV with Driving Relief, another star-studded round is set to be played this Sunday – and the rivalries you'll see on display today are as fierce as they come. Here's how to watch The Match: Champions for Charity live – stream The Match 2 online and see Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady golf it out from anywhere in the world.
The Match 2 is the spiritual successor to Tiger and Phil's first skins clash back in November 2018, which saw Mickelson take home the full $9 million purse after an epic 22-hole shootout.
Today's bounty is all going to Covid-19 relief efforts, though, and charities like the American Red Cross and Save Small Business – a minimum of $10 million will be donated with the potential for that figure to be significantly increased.
Even more intriguingly, today's round is a pro-am PGA event where Woods and Mickelson will be playing alongside NFL legends Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. The star quarterback duo both play golf to a very good standard, boasting single-digit handicaps, and will be bringing a taste of their AFC rivalry to the fairways this weekend.
It's impossible to make a prediction on this front, but Peyton may finally have the – upper-hand over TB12 – having retired five years ago, the Tennessee native is likely to have spent more time on the course than Brady, who was busy adding another three Super Bowl rings over the same period.

The Match format: how is Tiger vs Phil and Manning vs Brady being played?
The Match 2 is Best Ball Four-Ball on the front 9 (all players play every shot, best score wins), followed by a Modified Alternate Shot format on the back 9 – where both players tee-off and then select a ball to play on an alternate basis from there.
If that sounds straightforward, don't be fooled – as well as each hole being contested for the attached 'skin' (prize money), there's also a series of additional challenges that can be completed to raise even more money for charity.
One of these is a 'one-club challenge' on the par-4 fifth, where Woods and Mickelson will have to play the hole with a single stick – the 4-iron and 6-iron are popular choices because of the way they combine loft and distance, ut they'll really hope they stay out of the sand. A whopping $25 million will also be awarded to charity in the event of a hole-in-one.
A final wrinkle is the venue: the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. It's Woods' home course, so the 15-time Major winner likely has a degree of advantage – something not lost on Phil Mickleson, who's already indulged in some playful banter, saying he's relishing the chance to take down Tiger in his own backyard.
