Rush Street Interactive, who own PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers, have revealed that Sunday’s ‘The Match II” face off of Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady was the most bet on non-major golf event in legal American betting history.

Four of the most successful athletes of the past twenty years took to the links at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, for one of the best four hours of sports television in a long time.

The team of Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning defeated the team of Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in “The Match 2: Champions for Charity,” in the most bet upon non-major golf event in the history of BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com.

Woods and Manning beat Mickelson and Brady by one stroke in the rematch of “The Match,” the one-on-one match between Woods and Mickelson, which took place in November 2018, with Mickelson coming out on top.

Leading up to the event, which raised over $20 million for COVID-19 relief efforts, the Mickelson and Brady pairing received the early backing with upwards of 70 percent of the betting handle backing them to win at one time. However, in the end, the Woods and Manning pairing received 60 percent of the handle to win “The Match 2.”

Only 30 percent of the handle was on the outright match-winner. The rest was placed on various side props and live betting, throughout the event o BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse. Bets such as hole by hole winners, individual scores, and more kept bettors interested, throughout the event. 

“The Match 2” did 1.5 times the handle of “The Match” at SugarHouse in New Jersey, which was the only Rush Street Interactive site at the time that took wagers on “The Match.”

Although admittedly dreadful on the first six holes, in defeat, Brady, a six-time Super Bowl champion holed out from over 100 yards away on the Par 4 seventh hole, raising an additional $100,000 for charity and bringing a smile to the face of Charles Barkley after Barkley’s sarcastic commentary that he wanted a piece of Brady on the course
