Want tickets for the Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson match? There aren’t any

While some of the initial intrigue in and momentum has cooled for the Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson golf match at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend, there's still been a clamoring among golf fans for tickets to see the two legends play at the private golf club reserved for MGM guests and other high rollers.

However, a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal suggests there won't be many people other than Woods, Mickelson, their teams and TV crews at Shadow Creek for the Nov. 23 match.



The paper is reporting there will be no public tickets for the 18-hole, $9 million match. The only people in attendance other than those principally involved in the match and its broadcast will be a select group of VIPs and people affiliated with sponsors of the match.

Further, the paper reports the match will be played during daylight, taking away the possibility of the latter stages of the match being staged under flood lights akin to the primetime matches featuring Woods on ABC in the early 2000s. With sunset set for around 4:30 p.m. local time, the match could conclude as late as 7:30 p.m. Eastern.

There are still a number of unknown details around the match, including the official start time and the cost of the pay-per-view on Bleacher Report's B/R Live service and other contracted on-demand providers.

Tiger Woods is a betting favorite in the match against Mickelson. Woods' betting odds range in the -210 or -220 range, while Mickelson comes in around +170 or +180.
