I love living in a country where you can bet on what color shirt a man who is about to play 18 holes of golf for $10 million will wear. Long live the United States of America.

Also, I laughed out loud at the thought of Mickelson assessing himself a penalty stroke on national television in front of Woods before giving a big wink at one of the 1,000,000 cameras. We need an undercard, by the way, and you could do a lot worse than Rory McIlroy-Patrick Reed. The golf there might usurp whatever Woods and Mickelson did later on. 

Finally, over my own dead body am I going to bet against Phil Mickelson with this much money at stake. Woods should be (and would be) the favorite, but I'm either abstaining or pushing all of my chips onto Team Phil.
