Turner Broadcasting has announced that Sunday’s charity match between Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning v Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady which raised $20 million for Covid 19 relief charities was the most watched golf event in cable TV history, across four platforms. A 5.8 million viewers on average with 6.3 million at peak. It was the number one programme on television all day.
It helped that Tiger’s swing looks in impeccable form. Really great position at the top, delivering the clubface square and accurately hitting all 14 fairways. He looks in formidable form for when professional play resumes.
