Turner Sports will present the next installment of Capital One’s The Match, the Sports Emmy-nominated premier live golf event series, which will bring together two of golf’s most intense and competitive rivals — Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka — in a head-to-head showdown.

TNT will exclusively televise the 12-hole event, to be held the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 26, with live coverage beginning at 4 p.m. ET from Wynn Las Vegas, home of top-ranked Wynn Golf Course, the only golf course on the Las Vegas strip.

Previously announced commentators for Capital One’s The Match will include World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, a two-time winner of Capital One’s The Match, pairing with Sports Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Charles Barkley, returning for the third time as an analyst and who has previously competed in and won the event when he teamed with Mickelson for last November’s Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Change. TNT’s coverage will be hosted by play-by-play commentator Brian Anderson, with Amanda Balionis returning as the on-course reporter.

With the upcoming Capital One’s The Match, the series will have raised more than $30 million in support of various charities and initiatives and has generated more than 10 million meal* donations through Feeding America. Donations made as part of the Nov. 26 event will benefit APGA Tour (Advocates Pro Golf Association Tour) and Feeding America ®, in addition to DeChambeau contributing to Shriner's Hospital and Koepka donating to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. WarnerMedia and the golfers will tee things off with a charitable donation of 3.75 million meals to Feeding America.

Additionally, as part of its commitment to advance socioeconomic mobility in underserved communities, Capital One has provided $15 million in community investments and grants to small businesses across the country to help them throughout the pandemic. In conjunction with this event, Capital One announced it will be providing additional grants to help Black business owners stabilize and expand their businesses through an ongoing partnership with AEO (Association for Enterprise Opportunity).

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of thriving communities across the country, especially communities of color where access to capital and other resources has been a challenge. Through Capital One’s Impact Initiative, we are seizing upon the opportunity to reaffirm the importance of supporting Black business owners by providing them with the tools and resources needed to enable an inclusive recovery,” said Andy Navarrete, Head of External Affairs at Capital One.
