The seventh edition of Capital One’s The Match featured its strongest field of golfers yet and was played entirely under the lights for the first time. Those features made it one of the most memorable of these made-for-TV matches.
Tiger Woods and reigning FedExCup champ Rory McIlroy took on Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas in a best-ball competition Saturday from southwest Florida. Spieth and Thomas continued their success as a team, winning 3 and 2. They never trailed, but the camaraderie entertained throughout.
Here are five takeaways from The Match:
1. The Match wasn’t close but the trash talk and antics kept things entertaining. So did the players’ explanations about how they executed a variety of shots, such as Thomas talking about how he tried to “draw” a bunker shot so his ball would roll more. It’s a tip he took from Tiger.
2. No caddies? No problem for Spieth and Thomas, who made early birdie putts on Pelican’s slick putting surfaces to take a 2-up lead after three holes.
3. This was Woods’ first competitive appearance since The Open in July. He withdrew from last week’s Hero World Challenge with plantar fasciitis but said he had been playing well at home.
4. Woods famously won at Firestone in the dark and McIlroy won a major, the 2014 PGA Championship, after sunset. But they only had to play one hole without sunlight. All 12 holes of The Match were lit only by floodlights, as the competition didn’t start until 7 p.m. Eastern.
5. The one-club challenge on the fourth hole produced the anticipated chaos, with Thomas winning the hole by making par with only a 5-wood. Woods played a stinger down an alternate fairway, then hit a hook shot with so much curve that its tracer line screamed across the television screen. A golf cart had to be moved so McIlroy could attempt his third shot.

Your wedding reception should be a fun and festive celebration of your marriage, so it's important to choose the right entertainment. Gone are the days of hiring a band or DJ. Now, couples are opting for more unique and interactive forms of entertainment.
We're seeing everything from fire dancers to aerialists. If you want your wedding to be truly memorable, think outside the box when it comes to entertainment. For example, Funky Casinos will transform your wedding venue into a glitzy casino setting.

Nothing is official, but indications are that LIV Golf League will open its 2023 season in late February with an event in Mexico—at Mayakoba, the home of a long-time PGA Tour event that dates to 2007 at El Camaleon Club.
In keeping with its desire to not go up against legacy PGA Tour events, the dates would likely be Feb. 24-26—the same weekend as the Honda Classic and following the Genesis Invitational at Riviera.
So far, LIV Golf has announced just one tournament venue and date, an event to be played in Adelaide, Australia, in April, two weeks after the Masters. That tournament is expected to be followed a week later by one in Singapore at Sentosa Golf Club.
LIV Golf is expected to play at least twice more outside of the United States, with back-to-back events in Spain and England in late June/early July. The Spain event is expected to be played at Valderrama, site of the 1997 Ryder Cup and where the DP World Tour has played for several years. The England tournament returns to the Centurion Club outside of London, two weeks prior to the British Open and a week preceding the Scottish Open.
That would be five international events, and a question remains as to whether the controversial League will return to Saudi Arabia, the home of the circuit’s big-money benefactor, the Public Investment Fund.
That decision is likely what is holding up an entire announcement of the schedule, which is only expected to be partially released in the coming days. With 14 events locked in, LIV Golf can’t simply add one in Saudi; it has to work out the details of which domestic location would be skipped—or used if Saudi is no longer in play.
LIV Golf is expected to return to several venues it used in 2022—Trump Bedminster in New Jersey, Rich Harvest Farms outside of Chicago, The International outside of Boston and Trump Doral near Miami.
Other possibilities previously mentioned have been Dove Mountain in Tucson, Ariz., and the Greenbrier in West Virginia as well as another Trump course, possibly outside of Washington, D.C.
The plan has been to play the 14 events over 30 weeks, concluding in September, presumably prior to the Ryder Cup. Count on there being multiple back-to-back events.
