The fourth edition of Capital One’s The Match takes place this Tuesday, as Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady take on Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers from Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana live on TNT at 5:00 p.m.

Missed the first three versions of the made-for-TV events? We catch you up below on what happened the last three outings in the series.

Nov. 23, 2018: ”The Match” Phil Mickelson vs. Tiger Woods

Location: Shadow Creek, Las Vegas, NV
Winner: Phil Mickelson

Mickelson knocked off his longtime rival on the exclusive course just north of the Las Vegas Strip. While the events since have all been for charity, this one was for the cash: Mickelson banked a winner-take-all $9 million, with Tiger getting $1 million for the 22 holes played. Mickelson won 1-up in match play on the fourth extra hole.

May 24, 2020: “The Match 2: Champions for Charity” Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady

Location: The Medalist, Hobe Sound, FL
Winner: Tiger Woods-Peyton Manning

A clutch putt from Woods on 18 sealed the match under extremed darkness due to weather delays. Woods and Manning were 1-Up winners. They also raised over $20 million for COVID-19 relief.

Nov. 27, 2020 ”The Match: Champions for Change” Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley vs. Peyton Manning and Stephen Curry

Location: Stone Canyon Golf Club, Oro Valley, AZ
Winner: Phil Mickelson-Charles Barkley

FIGJAM and The Chuckster closed out the quarterback and the point guard 4 and 3 in a match with plenty of trash talk but not much drama. They also raised $6.4 million for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and added four million meals for Feeding America.
