ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary gave sports fans something to look forward to every Sunday night.
But “The Match,” which featured professional golfers Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, along with famed NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, gave fans some live sports to cheer for this Sunday. And, of course, it delivered.
Both sports fans and media members alike took to Twitter after the Woods-Manning pairing earned the win to share how much they enjoyed the 18-hole charity match. Here’s what some had to say:
What a cool match. The golf ranged from silly to serious. The banter was solid. Tiger was dialed. Phil did an instructional video. Manning almost made ace. Brady holed out, split his pants, won a long-drive with 3-wood. Fun. Entertaining. Competitive. Raised millions for charity.

For about 3.5 hours this was delightful nonsense and now it's balls-to-the-wall golf with actual tension. Can't believe how much fun this has been.

We haven’t had much of live sports for months. #TheMatch has been great TV.
Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, and everyone involved put on a great show.

That was awesome. Would watch another one. Loved the alternate ball on the back 9. Phil will be the best golf broadcaster of all time. Brady redeemed himself. Manning just comes off as a great guy. Tiger is terrific TV all the time. #success

That was spectacular. Unbelievable respect to all four of those guys, and everyone involved in putting it together. #TheMatch2

That was unbelievably well done. Horrible conditions, and they made it work. The banter was great, the pro tips, the competition down the stretch, and JT on analysis, all excellent #TheMatch

I know we're supposed to hate and criticize everything but The Match II ruled

I was just on the edge of my seat watching a charity golf match. That was a lot of fun. Can't wait for the feeling once pro sports are back

The #CapitalOnesTheMatch featuring Woods, Mickelson, Manning and Brady was even better than I thought it could be. As entertaining and fun 5 hours as you’ll get as a sports fan! So great! #TigervsPhil #TheMatch2 #memorialdayweekend2020
