Mickelson beats Woods in PPV match

Phil Mickelson birdied the fourth playoff hole to beat Tiger Woods in their $9 million made-for-TV match Friday at Shadow Creek Golf Club in Las Vegas.

Mickelson made a 4-foot birdie putt on a specially set-up 93-yard, par 3.

"Just know I will never let you live that down," Mikelson said to Woods after the match. "It's not the Masters or the U.S. Open, but it is nice to have a little something on you."

Mickelson was 1 up after 16 holes, but Woods tied it with birdie from the fringe of the green on the par-3 17th hole. Both birdied the par-5 18th and then parred the first playoff hole before it went to the par-3 extra hole that they kept playing until there was a winner.

The event, billed as golf's first pay-per-view broadcast, was marred by technical difficulties that left viewers unable to view it after paying $19.95. Turner and Bleacher Report representatives sent out links on social media allowing people to view it for free on their computers and mobile devices. (AP)
