Biannual golf showdown The Match is back for its second... well, match of the year, with the December 10 showdown following a June 1 challenge in Nevada.

This event sees Tiger Woods play for the first time since the 2022 Open Championship, pairing with long-time pal Rory McIlroy, with the two men going against challengers Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth for a night of golfing.

This isn't just a battle between some of the best golfers in the world, but a chance for them all to raise money for charity, with Hurricane Ian being the cause of choice for this tournament.
