Players who compete in The Match face off for 12 holes. They will wear microphones throughout the competition as they exchange barbs with each other and the commentators, who were not yet announced.

"We tried to make this a tag-team cage match, but the lawyers said our contracts wouldn't allow it," Brady tweeted after the announcement.
