 Golf legend, Tiger Woods loses $9m to Phil Mickelson in an exhibition matchPhil Mickelson sank a four-foot birdie putt on the fourth extra hole to pocket $9 million and beat Tiger Woods in an exhibition clash on Friday between two of golf’s greatest rivals.   Mickelson and Woods sparred over 22 rounds of match-play golf in front of an invitation-only gallery of 700 people at the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Mickelson clinched the victory with a short putt after Woods’ tee shot landed on the green but he left his six-foot birdie putt short. Mickelson had several putts to win earlier in the match that failed to drop, but he made no mistake on the final go at the par-three, 93-yard hole for the winner-take-all triumph. The match lasted five hours and finished in darkness as organizers had to use flood lights to illuminate the green on the final hole. While both the 48-year-old Mickelson and the 42-year-old Woods are past their prime, Friday’s meeting between the 19-time major winners still provided some entertaining golf.  Woods had to console himself with making the shot of the match on the 17th when he nailed a long birdie chip shot from the back of the green to stay alive in the match.The post Golf legend, Tiger Woods loses $9m to Phil Mickelson in an exhibition match appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
