Golfing legend Tiger Woods joined by Peyton Manning, Phil Mickelson and Tomorrow Brady went on to raise $20 million in charity match in Florida for COVID-19 relief efforts.

In the match Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning held off a late challenge to beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.

Woods, who lost to Mickelson in a $9 million winner-take-all challenge in 2018, congratulated Manning and Brady for their performance in the team match play event, dubbed The Match: Champions for Charity.

“We all came together and were able to raise $20 million for those that have been so severely affected,” Woods said.

“I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton. This is our arena, this is what we do for a living. I couldn’t imagine going on the field and do what they do,” he added with a laugh.

The competition comes 2-1/2 weeks before the PGA Tour plans to resume its season on June 11 at Colonial.

Woods last competed in February and then withdrew from a number of tournaments with a back injury before the PGA Tour decided to cancel a slew of events because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
