This was going to be your typical preview of The Match III with best bets and a couple of cool props.

Friday's Match will be the first time that Curry and Barkley star in The Match, a charity golf event that Turner Sports first introduced between Woods and Mickelson in 2018, where Lefty eventually won the $10 million prize in a play-off. The event will be live streamed on fuboTV.

Barkley will team up with previous Match participant Phil Mickelson to take on another pair of iconic athletes in Steph Curry and Peyton Manning.

The event starts at 2 p.m. (3 p.m. ET) and will be live streamed on fuboTV, which offers a 7-day free trial. TNT will exclusively televise the event in the United States of America. In fact, Curry and Mickelson already have mixed it up on social media.

The athletes include World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson and NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley going against three-time NBA Champion Stephen Curry and two-time Super Bowl Champion Peyton Manning. "She says to me, 'Hey, will you play golf with my boyfriend Phil?' I was like, 'Yea, OK.' ..."

"This one's going to be dope just because, obviously there's Phil, there's me, there's Peyton, and then way down there is Chuck, so he's going to embarrass himself for sure". "I truly believe an investment in HBCUs is an investment in our future and I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to support these great institutions alongside some of my favorite players ... and Chuck".

WarnerMedia, in coordination with Wheels Up, will also be contributing one million meals through Feeding America this holiday season, while using the platform of the event to help raise additional awareness and funding for hunger relief efforts.
