GOLF: Phil Mickelson defeats Tiger Woods in $9m winner-take-all match

It should have been the biggest golf show ever. It turned out to be the million-dollar error festival.

The duel "The Match" between golf giants Tiger Woods (42) and Phil Mickelson (48) did not meet the high sporting expectations of fans around the world. Very little spectacular blows. But very many mistakes and great opportunities missed. At least it was really exciting in the end.

Phil Mickelson won "The Match" in extra time at the legendary Shadow Creek Course in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA). After 18 holes and the first three extra holes, both players were All Square, so even.

After the giants duel, Mickelson told Woods, "Rest assured, I will not let you forget that. It is not the masters or the U.S. Open, but it's good to have something against you. "

Woods concluded: "You could not have made this tournament any better. It went back and forth, and it was hard fought on a difficult golf course. "

In Sudden-Death mode (whoever wins an extra hole first, is the winner) Mickelson secured the total prize money of an incredible 9 million US dollars (7.89 million euros).
