Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson Match Is Over - Here’s Who Won

Phil Mickelson right embraces Tiger Woods after Mickelson won a golf match at Shadow Creek golf course Friday Nov. 23 2018 in Las Vegas

Phil didn't completely botch the hole - he had a flawless opportunity to win the bet. but when he hit the putt that woulda given him the birdy, it stopped short.

As the action involving Woods and Mickelson failed to offer much in the way of entertainment, former National Basketball Association star Charles Barkley - working as a television pundit at the event - was handed a challenge of his own by Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.

The denouement of the entire match - which was not the greatest golf we've ever seen - came on the 17th hole in regulation.

Mickelson did not, in fact, birdie the hole.

Mickelson was one-up with only two holes to play when Woods kept himself alive in the contest with a sensational birdie.

Mickelson, 48, also won $600,000 in charity side bets, as he was closest to the pin on three of the Par 3s.

Tiger Woods Mocks Phil Mickelson After Winning $200K From Fellow Golfer: ‘That Hurts The Pocket’

Phil Mickelson has missed one of the costliest putts in golf history.

Tiger smirked and commented, "That hurts the pocket".

Woods then holed a confident five-footer for birdie at the par-five last and then gave Mickelson a generous concession, and the pair returned to the 18th tee before the advantage swung firmly towards Woods.

"We experienced a technical issue on Bleacher Report Live that impacted user access to 'The Match, '" Turner spokesman Nate Smeltz said.

However, Woods chipped in for an unlikely birdie and Mickelson could not match it from 12 feet, meaning the match was all square heading to the 18th.

So they settled it in true gambling fashion by making a makeshift 20th hole, played from the practice putting green behind the clubhouse to a newly cut hole on the 18th green. "My heart just can't take much more of it".
