Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in Sunday’s charity golf match which raised $20m (£16.4m) for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States.

Legendary NFL quarterback Brady hit the shot of the day, holing out from the fairway on the seventh.

“I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton,” said Woods. “This is our arena, this is what we do for a living.

“I couldn’t imagine going on the field and do what they do,” he added.

The event was played between four of the United States’ biggest sports stars at a rainy Medalist Golf Club in Florida – Woods’ home course – with no caddies and players driving their own golf buggies.

It follows Rory McIlroy’s £4m skins event last week involving fellow golfers Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff also in aid of charity.

The 18-hole match included on-course challenges for charitable funds – and plenty of trash talk.

Six-time Superbowl winner Brady had been getting a hard time from NBA great and commentator Charles Barkley just before he hit a 100-yard wedge shot into the hole on the seventh.

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going,” joked Brady.
