There hasn’t been much trash talking between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson ahead of their highly anticipated one-on-one match scheduled for Friday in Las Vegas. But Mickelson made things a bit more interesting Tuesday when he offered up a side bet on the first hole.

I feel like the first hole is a great hole for me,” Mickelson said during a news conference

And I believe -- in fact I'm willing to risk $100,000 that says I birdie the first hole. So that's how good I feel heading into this match.”

Woods responded, “So you think you can make birdie on the first hole?”

Mickelson doubled down on his assertion and Woods responded: “Double it.”

Woods had a successful and surprising 2018 campaign, finishing with a victory at the Tour Championship in September. Mickelson won the Mexico Championship in March – his first win in five years.
