The next match involving Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods involves a $10 million donation for COVID-19 relief efforts, along with plenty of bragging rights in a star-powered foursome May 24 at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.

Turner Sports announced more details Thursday for "The Match: Champions for Charity," a televised showdown between Woods and Peyton Manning against Mickelson and Tom Brady.

Medalist is where Woods plays when he's at home. The two pro football legends said they have played there before — with Manning running out of golf balls before reaching the 18th hole and Brady posting a 106.

The format will be better ball for the front nine and modified alternate shot on the back nine, meaning both players hit tee shots and take turns from there.

The 3 p.m. match will be simulcast on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN, with pregame coverage available on the Bleacher Report app.

WarnerMedia and the four players will collectively make a charitable donation of $10 million to benefit various relief efforts locally and nationally. Turner said the match includes a partnership with the "All In Challenge," an initiative that provides food for those in need.

Mickelson beat Woods in a playoff under the lights in Las Vegas during Thanksgiving weekend in 2018. This time, they are bringing in two of the NFL's greatest quarterbacks of all time to add to the entertainment.

Brady recently signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after two decades and six Super Bowl titles with the New England Patriots. Manning, the former University of Tennessee star, won one Super Bowl each with the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos before retiring after the 2015 season.

The announcement came with a video interview by TNT's Ernie Johnson of the four players, in which Brady said he wanted Woods as a partner until Manning's father called to switch the teams.

The match will be held one week after live golf returns to television for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the PGA Tour and other tours around the world. Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will play a charity match against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

Simultaneously one of the world's most famous and most exclusive courses, it will have a televised event for the first time.
