Two of the world's best and most popular golfers are planning a massive one-on-one showdown.

According to Golf.com's Alan Shipnuck , Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will play a $10 million match play showdown.

Shipnuck reports the whole thing started in April during the Masters when Woods and Mickelson played a practice round together, and it almost took place on Tuesday in Las Vegas during a prime-time TV special.

The problem, according to Shipnuck, is that the negotiations which involved major TV networks, corporate entities and more couldn't come together in time.

"We're working on a different date. I thought it was done for the third, but obviously it wasn't," Mickelson told Golf.com.
