The Match is a biannual golf showdown for charity with the first 2023 event taking place at the Wynn Golf Club n the Las Vegas strip in Nevada. NBA and NFL champions Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce will face Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to earn money for No Kid Hungry, a charity that combats childhood hunger around the US.

Unlike some of the biggest PGA Tour cups, The Match isn't just about the golf, with commentary from Charles Barkley and various challenges over the course of the 12-hole match giving you entertainment whether you're a fan of the sport or not.
