Tiger Woods confirmed on Wednesday that he and Phil Mickelson will compete in a head-to-head golf showdown during U.S. Thanksgiving weekend in November.

The event will be available to fans as a pay-per-view, with the price yet to be announced.

The match, set down for November 24 (AEST) at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, will be broadcast on pay-per-view and will be winner-take-all.

The 42-year-old Woods has won 79 PGA Tour events, including 14 major titles, while Mickelson, 48, has claimed 43 victories on the circuit, including five majors.

In his follow-up tweet, the PGA champion said he was excited to tee off at the Pro-Am at Northern Trust and to use his new account.

A whopping $9 million will be on the line, which isn't as much when you remember that Woods is worth around $750 million and Mickelson is worth almost $400 million.

"With only two guys, we should have a totally different experience with fans, because we will have smaller crowds that won't necessarily have ropes they can walk inside the fairway and up near the greens". Today, we're officially three months away from the most anticipated golf match of all time.

Mickelson and Woods had endured a sometimes hostile relationship down the year's as they battled for supremacy at the summit of men's golf but are known to have warmed to each other in more recent times, working closely during various Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup campaigns.

"In the first week of October, it will start to heat up", he said.

But, before we get to any of that, I must remind you that Phil Mickelson joined Twitter today and he's clearly already got the hang of it. "The whole point is the winner-take-all thing".
