DeChambeau and Koepka will compete in a 12-hole event in Las Vegas to settle their feud once and for all. The two golfers will have additional competitons on five of the holes, such as closest to the pin or longest drive. The money raised for the event will be donated to charity, specificially to Advocates Pro Golf Association Tour and Feeding America.
This is the fifth time “The Match” has taken place since the event began in November 2018 when Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson competed against each other.

DeChambeau will be making his second appearance in the event after competing with Aaron Rodgers in July 2021’s version of “The Match.” DeChambeau and Rodgers took the win over Mickelson and Tom Brady. This will be Koepka’s first appearance.

Live updates will begin around 4 p.m. ET.
All times Eastern.
5:15 p.m. — Koepka continues to dominate as he goes 3UP through six holes.
“This is why Brooks is so tough because in the majors, he slams the door on any opportunity.”

5:09 p.m. — Another additional competition hole on Hole 6. Koepka’s drive lands on the green near the hole, and so does DeChambeau’s. However, DeChambeau’s shot had a lot of spin on it, so Koepka won closest to the hole. Now, 500,000 meals will be donated to Feeding America in Koepka’s name.
5:05 p.m. — Koepka misses his eagle attempt, so he finishes with a birdie. DeChambeau misses his birdie putt, putting Koepka 2UP through five holes.
5:03 p.m. — DeChambeau’s shoes are highlighted by the broadcast booth, which show off “The Match” and the two golfer’s initials.
5:01 p.m. — Koepka puts his ball on the green, while DeChambeau’s shot was just short of the green.
4:57 p.m. — After DeChambeau tees off, he asks Mickelson if he liked the long drive. “I loved it,” Mickelson replied. They are poking fun at their earlier conversation when Mickelson asked DeChambeau if hitting bombs makes him more attractive.
4:49 p.m. — DeChambeau and Koepka both miss their birdie putts. DeChambeau says he would make a “snarky comment” about Koepka missing, but he still had to make a par putt, which he makes. There still isn’t much trash talking, which fans on Twitter aren’t too happy about.
Phil is doing a great job in the booth calling #TheMatch , as an aficionado of the game i love to hear his take. But need to see more banter between Brooks and Bryson. Like screaming in the backswing, walking in their line, and some lack of etiquette would make this interesting
