Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are set to square off in “The Match” this Thanksgiving Weekend at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas.
And if you’re thinking of attending this once in a lifetime matchup, you may as well be UFC fighters Conor McGregor or Khabib Nurmagomedov, because—just like them—you ain’t getting into Vegas.
According to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, multiple sources said the $9-million winner-take-all match on November 23rd will not be open to the public but rather only sponsors and VIPs.
However, fans will still be able to watch the match via pay-per-view. WarnerMedia, which holds broadcasting rights for the event, told the Review-Journal that it plans to offer “unprecedented access up to and during the competition,” including with HBO Sports’ “24/7” reality series and Bleacher Report’s “House of Highlights.” Also, TNT will televise content from the match in the following weeks.
Two details that have yet to be released are the time of the match and pay-per-view pricing. As the Review-Journal notes, sunset in Las Vegas on the day of the match is 4:28 p.m. local time., so the match could hypothetically end as late as 7:30 p.m. Eastern.
And while you Vegas doesn’t want your presence, they’d love your money.
Which is why they’d love for you to know that Woods is now a -220 favorite to win according to the Westgate.
