It sounds like sports fans won't have to wait until Tom Brady makes his Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut to see the legendary quarterback compete in a sporting event.
Brady and his former NFL rival Peyton Manning will take part in a golf match featuring Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, CNBC's Jabari Young reported Tuesday night.

The match could be played as early as May, per Young:
The person, who requested to not be identified as negotiations are stilling being finalized, said the event would likely happen in May and would benefit charity. Though nothing is official, the event could take place live on Turner Sports’ TNT channel or elsewhere in the WarnerMedia company, but its unlikely to be featured on pay-per-view.
Young also writes the match would pit Mickelson and Brady versus Woods and Manning. Other details include the match being played without fans at an undisclosed location. Social distancing measures also would be followed.
Woods and Mickelson squared off in a 1-on-1 golf match in November of 2018 as part of a pay-per-view event. Mickelson prevailed and took home nearly $10 million in the winner-take-all format. This match with Brady and Manning could be played in a similar fashion, although nothing official has been announced.
This event would provide several hours of quality entertainment for sports fans. The outbreak of the coronavirus has resulted in the cancellation of many sporting events, as well as the suspension or delay of nearly every sports league's season around the world.
It's very difficult to predict when sporting events/seasons could resume, but in the meantime, fans have this pretty exciting golf match to look forward to watching.
