Tiger vs Phil, the $10 million one-on-one golfing rivalry showdown teased for weeks, will now go down around Thanksgiving in Las Vegas.

The purse, according to Greenberg's report, is still being determined, but it previously was reported the winner-take-all stakes would be $10 million. These figures do not include the considerable amount of money both have earned through endorsements throughout their careers.
