"I know big picture, your career is the greatest of all time," Mickelson said about Tiger, per ESPN. "I've seen you do things that are just remarkable. But just know I will not ever let you live this one down. I will bring it up every time I see you."
"It's not the Masters, it's not the U.S. Open, I know, but it's something," Mickelson added. "It's nice to have a little something on you."
The initially pay-per-view match, set at a cost of $19.99, was beset by technical difficulties, Deadline reports. But some found out that the event was being streamed for free on Bleacher Report. People who paid the $19.99 were, unsurprisingly, not happy when they came across the info.
I paid $20 to watch Tiger Phil and now it’s just free on Bleacher Report. Well done— Kyle Scott (@CrossingBroad) November 23, 2018
BREAKING: Source says Turner execs decided to give Phil-Tiger match away for free on B/R Live streaming platform (instead of $20 charge) when purchase function broke down to point where those who bought had trouble getting in.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) November 23, 2018
Who is going to be issuing me a refund since this is now streaming for free?https://t.co/ydJysHzQWV— Michael Shamburger (@mshamburger1) November 23, 2018
