What adds to the excitement of this match is the trash talk between these sports icons. Known for his banter on the green, Peyton Manning will have some fun soundbites to dish out. Tiger and Peyton have played together before in The Memorial Tournament at the Wells Fargo Championship and other events. Tiger and Peyton will be looking to come out victorious.
