Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson rematch could include Tom Brady, Peyton Manning

With the sports void dragging on, fans are looking for any and all options for watching a competitive event.

The possibility of a golf match, in this case, a rematch - with no fans and socially distant competitors - between two of the game's greats has been floated.

Yes, Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson II. Mickelson hinted over the weekend that it's being worked on. They met in a pay-per-view event in November 2018 with Phil besting Tiger after four playoff holes to take home the $9 million prize.

And now, for the new wrinkle in the rematch: Golf author and journalist Robert Lusetich hinted that two other all-time greats - quarterbacks, that is - are being mentioned as potential playing partners for the golfing legends this time around. 

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

Vegas is already putting out lines, Lusetich reports:

Brady and Manning, in addition to being longtime QB rivals (Tom leads 11-5 head-to-head overall; and in Super Bowls, 6-2), are old golfing buddies, if this clip below from Manning's ESPN+ series, "Peyton Places" is to be believed. The two hit some balls and talked some trash after "breaking into" CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz's house. 

While Manning has been out of football since he went out on top with a Super Bowl title in February of 2016, Brady is preparing for his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So, would Tom have the time?

If they're all in, the question then becomes, who gets Tiger and who gets Phil as a partner?

Tom Brady's Sunday afternoon of golfing with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson was eventful, to say the least.

The ex-New England Patriots quarterback began "The Match" by struggling through the first six holes. Then, he finally got back on track with an amazing shot that briefly quieted the naysayers.

Unfortunately for Brady, the shot may have been overshadowed by him simultaneously splitting his pants. Just look at the photo below:

Whoops!

As you can imagine, Twitter had some fun with Brady's mishap:

It's OK, Tom. It happens to the best of us.

Tom Brady has a thing for comebacks.

The former New England Patriots quarterback was struggling mightily through the first few holes of "The Match" on Sunday. Then, he totally redeemed himself.

Just watch this shot below and enjoy:

"Shut your mouth, Chuck," Brady said to Charles Barkley, who had been chirping him throughout the match.

We should have known a comeback was around the corner. Didn't 28-3 teach us anything?

Just as Twitter had a field day with Brady's early struggles, it enjoyed watching Brady sink that improbable shot:

Bravo, Tom. Bravo.
