Here’s When, Where Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson Showdown Reportedly Will Happen

It is not clear if the two will put up their own money in the challenge.

Steinberg made the comments at the Firestone Country Club, where Woods and Mickelson are playing in this week's WBC-Bridgestone Invitational and, interestingly, played a nine-hole practice round together Wednesday.

Mickelson told his pre-tournament press conference that the excitement around the pairing "got him thinking" about bypassing the "ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match".

The 42-year-old Woods and 48-year-old Mickelson are two of golf's most recognizable active stars with 19 major championship wins between them and long have had a friendly rivalry over the years.

Their relationship, frosty in their primes, has thawed in recent years as age and life experiences have brought them closer. "We both like to talk smack, and we both have fun with what we're doing".

Woods replied, "I'm definitely not against that. We'll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable". It's unclear what the purse money would be, but it's been rumored $10 million could be up for grabs. Mickelson is expected to play in his 12th consecutive Ryder Cup this year, while Woods has already been named a vice captain and hopes to receive an at-large selection from captain Jim Furyk.

The news comes just a month after Golf.com's Alan Shipnuck reported that plans for a match between the two golf legends had fallen through after a potential date had been set in July.
