Earlier in the week, Phil Mickelson teased the idea that another match versus Tiger Woods is in the works while the sports world remains on hiatus.

While Mickelson didn't divulge specifics, plans include NFL superstar Tom Brady and retired quarterback Peyton Manning, reports Golf.com's Michael Bamberger.

"Match II," as Bamberger calls it, would be a team affair, with Brady and Manning each pairing up with one of the two golfers.

The 18-hole competition would be played without spectators at a Florida course two weeks prior to the return of any major sports league, according to Bamberger, who adds that players would maintain 6 feet of separation in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Turner would reportedly broadcast the event as regular programming, as opposed to "The Match: Tiger vs. Phil," which was a pay-per-view event. All proceeds would be donated to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Talks of another head-to-head match began some time ago, but Tiger's party was not overly interested, according to Bamberger. However, the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak has reportedly changed Woods' stance as sports fans seek ways to fill the void.

The PGA Tour has not yet approved the event, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. The Tour controls all media and television rights for its players as part of their membership.

While potential pairings are speculative at this time, a familiarity between Woods and Manning already exists as the two played in the pro-am together at the 2019 Memorial Tournament.
