The Best Moments From The Match III: Champions For Change

What The Match III was lacking without Tiger Woods competing, it made up for in an enhanced viewer experience thanks to having a few of these made-for-TV exhibitions under the broadcast’s collective belt.

Beginning with an hour-long pre-match show, and aided by open mics and a cadre of celebrities and athletes joining the broadcast throughout, The Match III delivered a fun and different version of what we’ve seen in recent months.

Despite his absence, Woods made his presence known with a “gift bag” of sorts for Barkley.

While Barkley was the butt of most of the jokes throughout the day, it was he and partner Phil Mickelson who got the last laugh, putting on a dominant performance at Stone Canyon in Oro Valley, Arizona, defeating Peyton Manning and Steph Curry, 4 & 3. 

Over the course of the day, the four stars raised money for Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as meals for families in need. $4.4 million was raised during the course of play and with the additional challenge holes, the total grew to $5.4 million.

If you weren’t able to tune in, here were some of the best and funniest moments of the day.
