    "THE SHOW WILL GO ON," reported GolfDigest.com.

    That show is "The Match" between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, although perhaps in a different format in 2019 and 2020.

    The first "Match" won by Phil Mickelson on the 22nd hole reportedly garnered about $20 million from paying customers. All those subscription fees were returned due to technical glitches by Turner. The title sponsorship of Capital One also kicked in a healthy sum.

    The re-Match will likely have a different look, according to GolfDigest.com:
    That doesn't mean we'll see a rematch of the affair that Mickelson won on the 22nd hole in the dark on a makeshift par-3 hole. But to keep both involved, a team showdown is "almost a certainty," said one confidant of the two men. The conventional thought is that they pair together against two challengers. But another option apparently is that they remain on opposite sides and each chooses his own teammate.​
    The refashioned Match holds some promise if it's more than Tiger and Phil. They should pair the old guns with some young guns. Then they might have something.

    I saw this headline yesterday and at the time didn’t know what to think.

    What’s your opinion guys - a good or bad move?
