PHIL MICKELSON edged TIGER WOODS and took the $9 million prize in their winner-take-all showdown on Friday. But it was close. They were tied after 18 holes, and had to do four playoff holes before it was decided.
Phil lost the $200,000 side-bet he made on the first hole, because he didn’t birdie. But after that, it was all Phil. He went three-for-three on ‘closest to the pin’ side-bets, which means Tiger will shell out $600,000 to his charity.
Tiger had his moments . . . and his biggest one was when he unleashed a classic Tiger FISTPUMP after a sweet birdie shot on the 17th hole to tie it up.
The match was supposed to be available on pay-per-view for $19.99 . . . but there was a technical glitch on the Bleacher Report Live paywall page. They couldn’t fix it, so they just took the paywall down.
And since people were able to watch it for free online, most cable providers are giving refunds to anyone who paid to watch it.
