The Match 2021 Live Golf Updates, Highlights of Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson vs. Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau



After weeks of trash talk between Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau, the two couples finally meet in The Match 4. Brady and Mickelson will team up in hopes of avenging their loss to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning at The Match 2, which occurred in early 2020.

Meanwhile, DeChambeau and Rodgers will be looking to win a victory in their first appearance on The Match. Each player has been dealing with the drama for the past few weeks. Rodgers is embroiled in long-term resistance from Packers camp after an MVP campaign, while DeChambeau parted ways with caddy Tim Tucker ahead of last weekend’s Rocket Mortgage Classic. DeChambeau failed to make the cut after the change.

Despite that, DeChambeau and Rodgers remain the favorites to win The Match, while Mickelson’s team appears as the underdog in the event once again. That hasn’t stopped him from winning in the past, as he beat Woods in the first iteration of the event in 2018 despite Woods being a huge favorite.

Either side could win the 18-hole match-play contest which will feature a modified alternate shooting format at each hole. It’s just a matter of which side can adapt to the unique conditions of The Reserve at Moonlight Basin, which sits at an altitude of 7,500 feet and features numerous tee shots that are significantly downhill. That includes the course’s signature hole, a 777-foot Par 5 hole where the tee is a couple hundred yards above the fairway.
