A $9 million golf match over Thanksgiving between two of the biggest golf pros, and no one watching live in person?? That could be the reality for Tiger Woods & Phil Mickelson.

According to a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, no tickets will be sold to the big-money event, and a small gathering of sponsors and VIPs will be given access to Shadow Creek where the match will be played. 

That doesn't technically mean Woods and Mickelson will be alone as camera crews and sponsors will certainly be in attendance, but it will provide a strange backdrop for two of the best to ever play. Here's the Review-Journal with more.

"Multiple sources who are familiar with the planning said a small gathering of sponsors and VIPs will be given access to Shadow Creek, which is owned by MGM Resorts International. The event is believed to be the first televised pay-per-view golf event. Broadcast rights are held by WarnerMedia."

"Also, no parts of the match will be played under the lights as was under speculation following Mickelson's comments about the event being held in prime time."
