Two of the biggest rivalries in sports came together Sunday, as Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, as well as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson joined forces for a friendly golf match to benefit the coronavirus relief effort. 

Tiger, Mickelson, Brady, and Manning weathered the rain to hit the course at the Medalist Golf Club, for what was dubbed The Match: Champions for Charity. The competition saw Woods and Manning team against Mickelson and Brady. 

Here is today’s winning formula!

The match was put together by Capital One and its goal was to raise more than $10 million for various charities that are working to combat COVID-19. According to ESPN, the event raised $20 million, which consisted of $10 million from today's four competitors and WarnerMedia, while the rest came from online and text donations, and other pledges. 

The stars traveled through the course in custom golf carts and played without caddies in an attempt to adhere to social distancing. 

Let’s gooooo #CapitalOnesTheMatch

Although it was all in good fun, the ultra-competitive icons didn't miss the opportunity to throw some playful jabs at one another. The most notable instance came when Manning said he should've brought Nick Foles or Eli Manning to caddie against Brady, which Brady jokingly called a "cheap shot." Foles and Eli are of course, the only two QBs to ever beat Brady in a Super Bowl.

😂 Peyton Manning says he should have had Nick Foles as his caddy because he knows how to beat Tom Brady hahahahaha @6abc #NickFoles #PeytonManning

As you might expect, people were delighted to see these titans go at each other. 

I’m here everyday for Peyton Manning talking shit to Tom Brady. Brady didn’t expect that Nick Foles joke. Excellent

Peyton Manning played in the NFL for like 20 seasons without having a good nickname and Tom Brady just called him “Peydirt” and wow we really had that sitting right there for us all those years

Let’s not forget, Manning usually had a few more weeks of golf practice than Brady every January. #TNT

Tom Brady counting all the strokes it’s going to take him to get the ball on the fairway #TheMatch 😂☠️ #CapitalOnesTheMatch

Peyton Manning knows there are two specific names that would’ve guaranteed a win against Brady if he had them as a caddie #TheMatch

Oh, and Tiger and Phil got into it, too. 

I hope the competitive juices turn this thing into a legitimate trash talk session on the course. #TheMatch

In the end, Woods and Manning came away victorious, finishing 1-up over Mickelson and Brady. "I was not comfortable the whole time but raising $20 million as people are going through such tough times, it's something I'll always remember and cherish," Manning said.
