The proposed $10million (£7.6m) winner-takes-all-match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson is set to take place in November, according to a report by ESPN.

The possibility of a contest between the former Ryder Cup team-mates has been mooted since the Players Championship in May, when they played the first two rounds at Sawgrass in the same group.

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’.
