The Match with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson has its first hype video http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/the-match-with-tiger-woods-and-phil-mickelson-has-its-first-hype-video/ http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/the-match-with-tiger-woods-and-phil-mickelson-has-its-first-hype-video/#respond Thu, 04 Oct 2018 21:10:12 +0000 http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/the-match-with-tiger-woods-and-phil-mickelson-has-its-first-hype-video/ Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson talked some trash in the first promotional video for their upcoming match in Las Vegas.

The post The Match with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson has its first hype video appeared first on El Paso Times.

]]>

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are playing for $9 million next month in Las Vegas. That much is set in stone for The Match, and a few more details emerged Thursday with the release of the first promo video.

So we have a confirmed date for Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving, at Steve Wynn’s super-expensive Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, and we know it’ll be available on Bleacher Report Live.

Now we have a bit of trash talk for a match that lost some of its allure with Woods and Mickelson going a combined 0-6 at the Ryder Cup.

“Easiest $9 million I’ve ever made,” Mickelson says.

“We’re gonna beat each other’s brains in,” Woods counters.

The 30-second spot is all set to some quick cuts with Jurassic 5’s “What’s Golden” as the soundtrack.

There’s still no word on a price tag to watch these guys go head-to-head in the desert and a lot of the details still have to be sorted out with The Match less than two months away.

It probably would have done monster viewership 10-15 years ago but there are legitimate questions about its level of appeal now, with Woods and Mickelson becoming more publicly friendly in recent years.

Woods opened as a -180 betting favorite and is even more heavily-favored now after he won the Tour Championship at East Lake in the final week of the PGA Tour season. They played a practice round together before the Ryder Cup and Mickelson jokingly said he was trying to negotiate a shot a side with how well Woods had been playing lately.

Obviously these two are past their primes and didn’t play well in France, but at the end of the day it’s still Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson putting it all on the line for 18 holes in what should be somewhat of a spectacle in Las Vegas.

John Huh puts humorous touch to his name on golf bag http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/john-huh-puts-humorous-touch-to-his-name-on-golf-bag/ http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/john-huh-puts-humorous-touch-to-his-name-on-golf-bag/#respond Thu, 04 Oct 2018 20:51:21 +0000 http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/10/04/john-huh-puts-humorous-touch-to-his-name-on-golf-bag/ John Huh puts humorous touch to his name on golf bag at the PGA Tour season-opening Safeway Open.

It’s a new season, so might as well change some things up.

John Huh begins his eighth PGA Tour campaign at this week’s season-opening Safeway Open. The 28-year-old won on the PGA Tour in his rookie 2012 campaign, and while he hasn’t captured a title since, Huh has impressively finished in the top 125 of the FedEx Cup standings every season.

Yet, apparently Huh still gets inquiries about his last name. So he decided to add something to his new bag to have some fun with all that:

Well played, John.

If Huh’s play this season is as good as his bag game, maybe those questions will slow down.

A Tiger-Reed Ryder Cup pairing? They’re reportedly playing alternate shot Thursday http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/a-tiger-reed-ryder-cup-pairing-theyre-reportedly-playing-alternate-shot-thursday/ http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/a-tiger-reed-ryder-cup-pairing-theyre-reportedly-playing-alternate-shot-thursday/#respond Thu, 27 Sep 2018 13:40:04 +0000 http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/a-tiger-reed-ryder-cup-pairing-theyre-reportedly-playing-alternate-shot-thursday/ Tiger Woods and Patrick Reed seem to be heading toward a pairing as they play alternate shot Thursday at the Ryder Cup.

The post A Tiger-Reed Ryder Cup pairing? They’re reportedly playing alternate shot Thursday appeared first on El Paso Times.

]]>

The split of Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed seems more and more likely by the minute.

Tiger Woods and Reed are playing with Spieth and Justin Thomas in Thursday’s practice at the Ryder Cup. This marks the third straight day that Woods and Reed have played together at Le Golf National.

And as Golf.com’s Dylan Dethier reports, Woods and Reed played alternate shot on the front nine while Spieth and Thomas also had their own alternate shot going. Dethier notes that it wasn’t strict alternate shot the whole time, but that it was played a good deal.

Considering this tournament includes two sessions of foursomes (alternate shot), this seems to be a pretty telling indication that Woods/Reed and Spieth/Thomas will be pairings – at the very least in that format.

Maybe these will be the duos in four-balls as well. We’ll know soon, as the pairings for the Friday morning four-balls will be announced at the opening ceremony, which commences Thursday at 11 a.m. ET.

Oh, and Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau seems likely to be a pairing as well.

It’s all intrigue for now. The guessing, though, will end soon.

Team USA pranked Tiger Woods with ‘cold shoulder’ after epic win at East Lake http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/team-usa-pranked-tiger-woods-with-cold-shoulder-after-epic-win-at-east-lake/ http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/team-usa-pranked-tiger-woods-with-cold-shoulder-after-epic-win-at-east-lake/#respond Thu, 27 Sep 2018 13:31:22 +0000 http://elpasotimes.sportstonews.com/2018/09/27/team-usa-pranked-tiger-woods-with-cold-shoulder-after-epic-win-at-east-lake/ http://www.

The fun got underway for the Ryder Cup hours before the Team USA arrived in Paris – at least when it came to pranking Tiger Woods.

After Woods won the Tour Championship and nailed down his 80th PGA Tour victory after 1,876 days, he got a cold surprise that – thankfully – turned out to be all in jest.

Caddie Joe LaCava gave captain Jim Furyk the OK to pull off the “cold shoulder” practical joke Furyk organized with several members of Team USA.

“I ran into Jim Furyk and he said, ‘We were thinking about giving Tiger the cold shoulder like they do in baseball when the guy hits his first home run,’” LaCava told Ryder Cup Radio on Sirius/XM. “He asked, ‘Do you think Tiger will be OK with that? I was like, ‘Of course he would. He’s got a sense of humor.’”

Here’s how it went down:

“Tiger shows up about a half-hour later and is looking for some high-fives from everybody and they wouldn’t give him the time of day. They weren’t even looking at him, they all have their backs to him.”

“He’s looking at me like what’s going on? He’s not a guy who is looking for fanfare, but these are his boys. He’s looking for 11 guys to run up and give him a good hug.”

After a couple of minutes of awkward silence, the gig was up and the celebration began.

Team USA continued to bond this week in Paris.

And so did the ribbing.

Here’s what happened when Woods went left during a practice round Thursday.

Ouch.
