Charles Barkley teams up with Phil Mickelson against Stephen Curry and Peyton Manning in a round of golf for charity the day after Thanksgiving.
The Match 3, officially called “Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Change” will tee off in Arizona on the afternoon following the Thanksgiving holiday. Most of the proceeds will go toward supporting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The only PGA regular of the group, Mickelson, will get to play with Barkley and his much-maligned swing. Curry has played in pro golf events before and teams with Manning, who played in The Match 2 earlier in the year.
Here’s everything you need to know about when The Match 3 takes place, along with how to watch and who you’ll be listening to on the broadcast.
The Match 3 start time
- Date: Nov. 27
- Time: 3 p.m. ET
For those on the East Coast, you can tune into TNT at 3 p.m. ET and hopefully immediately see golf action. The Match 3 is taking place in Arizona at Stone Canyon Golf Club, so that works out to 1 p.m. local time for the competitors.
If you’re looking for the pre-match show, that’s viewable on TNT beginning at 2 p.m. ET. That might be worth a watch, too, because it’s supposed to feature Eli Manning and Michelle Wie.
