Two of golf's greats and two football legends will tee it up, as Tiger Woods teams up with Peyton Manning against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in an 18-hole match to raise money for coronavirus relief efforts on Memorial Day weekend.

National Football League quarterbacks Brady, who partners Mickelson, and Woods' team-mate Manning, also have a long-standing rivalry.

The TV broadcast will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will be joined by National Basketball Association star Charles Barkley and 2008 Masters champion Trevor Immelman. Woods would be hoping to hit some form after the 15-time major victor returned with a disappointing 68th-place finish at the Genesis Invitational. Turner Sports and Milwaukee Brewers play-by-play broadcaster Brian Anderson is getting back into the booth for The Match, Champions for Charity.

Manning won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos during his National Football League career.

This has naturally led to speculation that the wrestler has taken her own life, but this has not yet been officially confirmed. Fans were becoming increasingly anxious as Kimura posted concerning messages and photos.

The contest will take place behind closed doors at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, with no caddies, while the players are allowed to drive their own golf buggies.

Brady, Mickelson's partner, recently joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after winning six Super Bowls during two decades with the New England Patriots.

The action is available to United Kingdom viewers on CNN International from 8pm on Sunday.
