Tennessee great Peyton Manning will team up with Tiger Woods to take on Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in a 'Champions for Charity' golf match on Sunday afternoon.

The round will be played at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, which is Woods' home course. If Manning had it his way though, he said the four pro athletes would be playing just down I-75.

"I tried to get it moved to Sweetens Cove. I liked the public course, but it’s Tiger’s home course and I wasn’t going to argue with him. Wherever he was going to want to play it, that’s where it was going to be," the two-time Super Bowl champion

The Match, 'Champions for Charity' tees off on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. on TNT.
