Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau differed by just a few millimeters in the “near-goal” portion of the fourth charity hole match.
The near-target tee-off is held at par 3, 248 yards long. Before Mickelson hit, Tom Brady missed the green, Aaron Rodgers 1.8 meters away. Mickelson, in turn, wanted to enter the green from back to front because this part is like a barrier, which can be stopped from there to help the ball roll back to the target.
Mickelson swings the club while the ball is estimated to be 0.76 meters from the hole. “See Cheyenne. The ball is always good,” Mickelson turned to MC Cheyenne Woods – grandson of Tiger Woods and also an LPGA Tour player.
DeChambeau, in the final session, used an eight iron and sent the ball close to the same distance.
After this shot, the Organizing Committee uses a ruler to determine the results, in mm. In the end, Mickelson scored the first goal for the home team when he was 6.35 mm ahead of DeChambeau, thereby raising $ 250,000 for the charity of his choice.
The Match 2021 takes place on July 6 at The Reserve, in southern Montana, on a field 2,280 meters above sea level. The DeChambeau – Aaron Rodgers pair beat Mickelson – Tom Brady at 3&2, after Rodgers finished with a birdie from a 3.6-meter putt on the 16th hole.
Rodgers and Brady are both professional American football players (NFL). Both belong to the group of high-level amateur golfers – single handicap.
This year’s The Match is played in a “modified fourball” format, in which all four players serve separately after that, each team choosing the best position for the second shot. At this stage, the author of the hole must let his teammates shoot. The playing process will alternate until the hole is closed.
“I think the home team played well today, scored a lot of birdies. But the opponent played better,” Mickelson concluded after the game.
