Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning were the winners at Medalist Golf Club in Florida, as were the benefactors of ``The Match: Champions for Charity.''

Woods and Manning took the lead on the third hole and never trailed, once building a 3-up lead in fourballs on the front nine. Manning making two birdies before the turn, although one was a net par.

Woods lagged a long birdie putt on 18 that was close enough that Manning didn't have to putt. That secured a 1-up victory over Mickelson and Brady.

Brady took plenty of teasing from TV analysts Charles Barkley and Justin Thomas. Brooks Koepka (KOEHP'-kuh) offered $100,000 to the cause if Brady could just make a par.

Brady quieted his critics on the par-5 seventh as his fourth shot landed beyond the pin and spun back into the cup.

The goal was to raise $10 million or more for COVID-19 relief funds, and online donations sent money climbing toward about twice that much.
