Woods And Manning Cash In – Win Champions For Charity Golf Match
Champions For Charity: Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning Dominate Early in Victory over Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady for COVID-19 Relief Efforts
Nearly every hole Tiger Woods was striping it. Peyton Manning chipped in and played well as his partner. As Phil Mickelson sprayed it early and Tom Brady struggled even worse, the lead grew to +3 through 6 holes for Woods and Manning in The Match: Champions for Charity.
I previewed the made-for-TV event in an article at Forbes – Odds Favor Tiger Woods And Peyton Manning Victory In Champions For Charity Match.
I chipped in more at Vegas Sports Zone with information and insight on how The Match fit Tiger to a Tee.
Betting recommendations included Woods and Manning leading through 6 holes (+135 at FanDuel and +120 on 3-way line) and leading through 12 holes (-110).
- I also expect Woods and Manning (-120) to be leading after 12 holes as offered at DraftKings Sportsbook. That’s a more favorable bet for those not as interested in laying -225 on Woods and Manning to win the entire match. An even better bet is Woods and Manning (+135) to be leading after 6 holes at FanDuel Sportsbook.
- FanDuel Sportsbook has a closest to the pin prop on hole No. 4, a Par 3 of just over 200 yards. I’d bet Tiger (-116) over Phil (-102).
For a majority of fans that watched for sheer entertainment, the event met expectations despite the golfers playing through rain during most the event.
Following the event, all four players stood alongside a $20 million dollar check that was raised for COVID-19 relief efforts. WarnerMedia and the four superstars playing in the event donated $10 million, and another $10 million was raised during the match from online and text donations along with other pledges.
The Match was a Champions For Charity success. Even if UFC President Dana White didn’t follow my betting recommendations. Hopefully he contributed and donated well more than his $15,000 bet that lost.

The success and popularity of the event should ensure future fundraising and charity events with pro athletes. The previous weekend started with the TaylorMade skins event featuring pro golfers raising funds for charities and COVID-19 relief efforts.
Woods and Manning were The Match winners. The Champions For Charity golf event was a huge win for COVID-19 relief efforts.
You can bet on it.
