How much money does the victor of Tiger vs. Phil make?

"You've been doing that to me for 20 years, I don't know why I am surprised now, " he said.

Mickelson then referred to a champion's belt that Friday's victor received, telling Woods, "I will wear this belt buckle every time I see you". "It's not the Masters or the US Open, but it is nice to have a little something on you".

"So that was an opportunity that went wasted, and Phil capitalized on it".

Mickelson and Woods had played those 18 holes of match play in back-and-forth fashion, though Mickelson did not trail until late in the day. Both have already committed to $200,000 for the first shot. Mickelson would have been 4 under with 5 birdies.

After missing his birdie attempt on the third playoff hole, Mickelson told Woods to pick up his 5-foot par attempt with the green illuminated mostly from production lighting, saying, "I don't want to win like this, let's go". But he missed, prompting this triumphantly smug reaction from Woods. But Woods pushed it left, extending the match.

With temperatures falling into the low 50s and light fading, that sent the match to a 93-yard chip shot back to the 18th hole from the practice putting green.

It was advantage Mickelson off the tee as Woods was forced to lay up following an errant drive, but Mickelson's approach plugged in a green-side bunker and Woods hit his approach to seven feet, but after Mickelson could only make par, Woods missed the $9m putt and the makeshift hole was required. There was some banter between Woods and Mickelson early on but not much as the stakes increased. It took two more goes before the victor birdied under the lights. But he missed a birdie putt on the first hole and will donate $200,000 to Woods' handpicked charity.

The denouement of the entire match came on the 17th hole in regulation.

"We were there to play head-to-head and do something that's never been done before", Woods said.

"You couldn't have made this event any better than it was", Woods said.
