Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are playing a single round of golf on Black Friday for $9 million. On top of that huge winner-take-all purse, the two have set up their first side bet, and it’s worth $200,000.

Mickelson so believes he’ll birdie Hole 1, he bet Woods $100,000 of his own money. Never one to back down from provocation, Woods told him to “double it.”

Challenge accepted.

Watch the golfers work it out via video above.

“Capital One’s The Match: Tiger vs. Phil,” is being held Friday at MGM Resorts International’s Shadow Creek in Las Vegas and will be distributed by WarnerMedia and produced by Turner Sports. It will be available through Turner’s B/R Live, DirecTV and AT&T U-verse, as well as on other cable, satellite and telco operators in the U.S. and Canada.

“The Match” will cost $19.99 on pay-per-view.
