Which Nationals players would flourish on “The Match”?
Back on November 23, 2018, the first version of “The Match” was played. Legendary golfers Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson faced off with nine million on the line. After 22 holes, Phil took home the prize money and a rematch was in order. This time around, it was to be teams of two, with Tom Brady and Mickelson facing off against Peyton Manning and Woods.
Brady and Manning were excellent choices because not only are they two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, but they were fierce rivals. The trash talk was top tier, but in the end, Mickelson and Brady prevailed, with the proceeds going to charity.
A third edition showcased NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley teamed up with Mickelson to take on Steph Curry and Woods. Once again Mickelson came out on top. Tomorrow, the fourth iteration of the competition will commence, with Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and golfer Bryce DeChambeau teaming up to challenge Brady and Mickelson.
Similar to Brady and Manning, Rodgers has the star pedigree mixed with the perfect blend of confidence that allows him to thrive on the field.
With the fourth iteration of “The Match” around the corner, the question arises, which Washington National players (current or former) would be best suited to appear on a future version.
