ESPN have reported today that the event will take place at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas on Friday 23 November or Saturday 24 November.

The pair played a practice round together during preparation for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational taking place this weekend. Woods has done seemingly everything except win to this point in 2018.

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

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

"It's a ridiculous amount of money", Mickelson, who has a net worth of $375 million, told Golf.com last month.

Between them, the two Americans have won 19 major championships - Woods with 14 to Mickelson's five. It is not clear if the two will put up their own money in the challenge. "We both like to talk smack, and we both have fun with what we're doing".

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. "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". Mickelson is expected to play in his 12th consecutive Ryder Cup this year, while Woods has already been named a vice captain and hopes to receive an at-large selection from captain Jim Furyk.

"We're working on a different date", Mickelson told Alan Shipnuck.
