Woods & Daly team up for Battle at the Bridges

In what could be the final installment of Monday night golf exhibitions, Tiger Woods and John Daly will take on Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen in the "Battle at the Bridges.''

Organizers had hoped to get the "Big Four'' for the July 25 match at The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe, but Vijay Singh declined to appear. Instead, they got three of the top five in the world ranking, plus the ever-popular Daly.

This is the final year of the contract, and ratings have plunged since the format went away from head-to-head competition after Sergio Garcia beat Woods in 2000.

The better-ball format offers $1.2 million for the winning team, and $500,000 for the runner-up.

Woods has played all six Monday night exhibitions since they began in 1999 when he defeated David Duval at Sherwood Country Club.

Mickelson will be playing for the third time. He teamed with Garcia two years ago to beat Woods and Ernie Els, and played with Daly last year when they lost to Woods and Hank Kuehne.
