Tiger Woods promised that next month's made-for-TV match with Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will be an entertaining contest as the quartet raise funds for charities involved in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

With professional golf suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, Woods gave a brief outline of what fans tuning into The Match: Champions for Charity, can expect to see.

"It's going to be Peyton and I against Tom and Phil," Woods told Golf Digest about the pairing up with the two NFL greats.

"There has been a little bit of trash talking already, a little bit of banter back and forth. It'll be like that when we compete but it won't be as rough as what we have in our text exchange.

"We haven't decided exactly what charities we're going to be donating all the money to. We're going to be divvying it out (to) a lot of different causes that have had the impact for this virus and that type of relief."

Although the exact location and date have yet to be confirmed, it is expected to take place near Woods' base in south Florida.
