THEY’LL BOTH BE in action this week in Firestone as a warm-up to the final Major of the season and could be playing with each other in France in late September for the US in the Ryder Cup.

But after that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are reportedly set for a highly anticipated one-on-one showdown on Thanksgiving weekend in November with a prize fund of potentially $10 million on offer.

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. Golf.com had initially reported last month that the players were in negotiations for a ‘winner take all’ competition.

Woods is currently -2 in the first round of the WGC event at Firestone, returning to the course to compete for the first time in four years, having previously won this tournament on eight occasions. Mickelson tees off later.

42-year-old Woods and 48-year-old Mickelson have won 19 Majors between them. Woods last triumph came in the 2008 US Open while Mickelson won The Open in 2013.

Next week they will be in action in the PGA Championship at Bellerive in Missouri with Woods vice-captain under Jim Furyk for the Ryder Cup in Paris on 28-30 September, and Mickelson currently 10th in the US team standings.
