To make $9 million for an afternoon of golf, one had better be willing to promote the hell out of the match. That’s exactly what Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are doing with their upcoming installment of HBO’s “24/7.”
We got a very dramatic trailer on Monday for “24/7 The Match: Tiger vs. Phil.” The HBO series debuts Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 10/9c, while the actual $9 million pay-per-view match in Las Vegas will take place on Friday, Nov. 23 starting at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT.
Watch the trailer above.
“He could smell it,” Mickelson says of his opponent in the “24/7” sneak peek. “He could almost touch that $9 million.”
“It would mean more than the 9 mill — to take it off of him, it’s just that much better,” Woods says.
“It’s not gonna happen,” Phil promises.
Per HBO, “24/7 The Match: Tiger vs. Phil” will feature exclusive access to both golfers as they prepare for the winner-take-all showdown, including in-depth interviews with them about the rich history behind their rivalry and friendship — and the intensity that drives both to try and best the other when they meet for this monumental clash.
Liev Schreiber narrates the lead-up docuseries, which is executive produced by Peter Nelson and Rick Bernstein. Bentley Weiner is senior producer and Aaron Cohen is the writer.
The Capital One-sponsored contest is produced by Turner Sports and will be distributed through Turner’s B/R Live, DirecTV and AT&T U-verse, among other TV providers.
