Mickelson wins match against Woods with birdie on 22nd hole

Phil Mickelson Loses $200k Bet to Tiger Woods

Mickelson prevailed in darkness on a makeshift hole played three times, finally converting a 4-foot putt to win.

The superb shot left viewers in a spin on social media.

Tiger Woods produced a trademark moment of magic against Phil Mickelson to leave the golfing world in a frenzy. Woods had to sit there and take it.

There were indications that Mickelson was more prepared, having spent several days in recent weeks at Shadow Creek, including a good part of this week.

First Lady Melania Trump Faces Backlash for Thanksgiving Tweet
Earlier in the week, President Trump commented on the soldiers at the border and noted people should not be concerned about them. But, Trump said, "whether he did or whether he didn't, he denies it vehemently".

Mickelson and Woods sparred over 22 rounds of match-play golf in front of an invitation-only gallery of 700 people at the Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Woods was only here for a practice round Tuesday, then joined his family in Palm Springs, California, for Thanksgiving and then returned Friday morning. Both have already committed to $200,000 for the first shot.

Golf's first venture into pay-per-view was hyped like a Las Vegas prizefight but proved more of a pillow fight with both golfers in jovial mood, playing for a purse that was put up by sponsors and will go to a charity of Mickelson's choice.

Unfortunately for Woods - the favourite to win the unique matchplay contest - Mickelson hit his approach shot closer. Mickelson made three birdies.

They both parred the 18th and then played it again, with Woods holding a clear advantage after Mickelson found a greenside bunker and had to blast to 30 feet.

ALERT: Avoid contaminated lettuce
But, epidemiologic evidence from the United States and Canada indicates that romaine lettuce is a likely source of the outbreak. According to a 2013 USA government report, leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach are the biggest source of food poisoning.

Tiger and Phil are tied after 11 holes. He missed a nine-foot putt that, as Tiger Woods notes, is going to "hurt the wallet".

Those side bets were to be paid to the respective players' charitable foundations with the players' own funds.

The five-time major victor also recovered from losing a $200,000 (£156,000) side bet on the opening hole by winning three nearest-the-pin contests for a total of $600,000 dollars (£468,000), with that money reportedly coming from the players themselves and being donated to charity. A match sorely lacking drama got some when Woods chipped in for a birdie at the 17th.

Mickelson, whose tally of five major championships is well shy of the 14 held by Woods, savoured the win over a player he had a white-hot rivalry with more than a decade ago and whom he described as the best to ever play the game.

China, meanwhile, wanted a reaffirmation of opposition to protectionism and unilateralism that it says the U.S.is engaging in. The U.S. has also said it will be involved in ally Australia's plan to develop a naval base with Papua New Guinea.

"We were going back and forth". It flipped, and next thing you know, we go to the last hole.
