Tiger Woods will face Phil Mickelson in November at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, ESPN's Mike Greenberg reported Thursday.

The most anticipated one-on-one showdown between two of golf's biggest stars has a date (or a weekend at least).

Rumours of a made-for-TV match have abounded since Woods and Mickelson shared a practice round at the Masters in April, something the old foes repeated before this week's WGC Bridgestone Invitational. The purse has yet to be finalized, per Greenberg, but previously was reported to be $10 million.

Woods, 42, is ranked No. 50 in the world, while Mickelson, 48, sits at No. 21. "No matter how much money you have, this amount will take both of us out of our comfort zone".

Woods last triumph came in the 2008 US Open while Mickelson won The Open in 2013.

Mickelson now sits in 10th place of the Ryder Cup standings while Woods is 20th. A sometimes-contentious relationship between Woods and Mickelson has thawed in recent years.

"Leftie" has 43 wins on the PGA tour, including five majors.

Mickelson told his pre-tournament press conference that the excitement around the pairing "got him thinking" about bypassing the "ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head-to-head and just have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match". Mickleson saying, "Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun".

"It's not there yet, but certainly we are working on it and trying to make it happen".

Many thought Mickelson and Woods were just joking, until both players confirmed they were in talks with TV channels and sponsors - and the much talked about event nearly happened last month.
