Four iconic athletes, two revered rivalries, one great cause.
Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady will join forces on Sunday for “The Match 2: Champions for Charity.” Woods and Manning will compete as a pair against the team of Mickelson and Brady in an 18-hole round of golf. Scores will be kept, but the biggest victory will be the millions of dollars donated to coronavirus (COVID-19) relief.
MANNING VS. BRADY: Who’s the better golfer?
Mickelson beat Woods in “The Match” 18 months ago for a $ 9 million payday. For the rematch, former NFL rivals Manning and Brady have joined the event, bringing charisma and excitement with them. All four will be mic’d up and nobody else will be around (no caddies or fans allowed), so viewers will get front-row access to the match.
Here’s what you need to know about “The Match 2” from the financial side of things.
‘The Match’ purse: How much money will be donated to charity?
The four participants and WarnerMedia will donate a combined $ 10 million to benefit COVID-19 relief. Additional fundraising will come from a partnership with the All In Challenge.
Those who donate will have chances to win “once-in-a-lifetime experiences” in the realms of sports, music and entertainment. Other prizes are also available via auction, including golfing with Manning in the winner’s hometown and going to the Buccaneers’ home opener and having dinner with Brady.
How much will the winner make?
In 2018, the first installment of “The Match” took place between just Woods and Mickelson with a prize of $ 9 million on the line. This year, it’s all for charity.
Bragging rights are also on the line, which could prove more valuable than traditional prize money.
What is the All In Challenge?
The All In Challenge is a digital fundraising effort started by Michael Rubin, the part-owner of the 76ers and founder of Fanatics. Its focus is fighting food insecurity enhanced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The challenge aims to raise tens of millions of dollars, which will all go toward Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.
Tiger Woods net worth
Woods’ dominance on the golf course has led to more than $ 120 million in prize money during a professional career that spans a quarter-century, but he’s earned much more off the course. Sponsors like Nike have contributed to career earnings of over $ 1.4 billion, according to Forbes.
In total, Forbes estimated in 2018 that Woods had a net worth of $ 800 million.
Peyton Manning net worth
Manning brought home a cool $ 248 million in salary during his 18 years in the NFL. At the time of his retirement in 2016, Manning had made more than $ 150 million from endorsements, according to Forbes.
The endorsements have continued rolling in since his playing days. Manning has also been apart of programming on ESPN+.
Tom Brady net worth
Brady ended his run in New England with $ 235 million in career earnings from the Patriots. He’s had fewer endorsement deals than Woods and Manning, but his consistent ranking as one of the top-selling jerseys in the NFL has helped bring in an estimated $ 115 million off the field, according to Forbes.
Brady signed a two-year, $ 50 million deal with the Buccaneers in March.
Phil Mickelson net worth
Mickelson has made $ 91 million in career prize money, according to Forbes, the second-most ever behind Tiger Woods. Off the course, the 49-year-old has earned $ 700 million from endorsements.
Forbes estimated his net worth in 2016 to be north of $ 375 million.
