Tiger-Phil Won't Offer Tickets To Public; Match Not Under Lights
The Nov. 23 match between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods in Las Vegas will "not have any tickets available to the public," according to Brian Hurlburt of the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL. Sources said that a "small gathering of sponsors and VIPs will be given access to Shadow Creek," owned by MGM Resorts Int'l. Also, no parts of the match "will be played under the lights as was under speculation following Mickelson’s comments about the event being held in prime time." Sunset is 4:28pm PT in Las Vegas on the day of The Match -- the Friday after Thanksgiving -- meaning the event "could end" as late as 7:00 or 8:00pm ET. Event organizers have "made no official announcements about event timing or pay-per-view pricing." Last week, the first "official hype video was released" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 10/11).
