"It's game time! My partner Tom Brady and I are back and ready to settle some unfinished business," Mickelson tweeted Wednesday. "See you in Montana, Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau."

The Match format started when Mickelson bested Tiger Woods in a head-to-head battle in 2018 in Las Vegas. Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning then beat Mickelson and Brady in the second edition of the celebrity showdown in 2020 in Hobe Sound, Fla.

Mickelson won his second The Match title when he teamed up with Charles Barkley to beat Manning and Stephen Curry in November in Oro Valley, Ariz.

"Two old guys against the young bucks," Brady tweeted Wednesday. "Bryson better get used to laying up because we know Aaron Rodgers isn't going for it."

The Match format features the golfers on live mics as they exchange banter and trash talk throughout the competition. Players will alternate shots in the match play event.
