He has already referred to it as a match between the “old guys” and the “young bucks” – and he could not be more accurate.
Tom Brady, the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl at 43, and Phil Mickelson, the oldest golfer to win a major tournament at 50, will reunite on the course to compete against Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau. Rodgers is 37 years old and DeChambeau is 27 years old.
The duo teamed up last May in the second installment of The Match where they lost to 15-times major champion Tiger Woods and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.
Mickelson extended an invitation to Brady to team up again, stating in a post on Twitter: "We have some unfinished business. Let's get another match and find a pair to give a beat down."
July's “The Match” , which will raise money for multiple charities, will take place at the Jack Nicklaus-designed The Reserve at Moonlight Basin course in Big Sky, Montana, under a modified alternate shot match play format. It will benefit Feeding America as well as other charities.
