Phil Mickelson will hit the links on Friday for 18 holes of competitive play against a pair of participants who make their money in careers that are not professional golf. And Lefty is the underdog.

That’s because the winner of 44 PGA Tour events, including five majors, is teamed with notorious duffer Charles Barkley. If you’re blissfully unaware of the train wreck that is The Round Mound of Out of Bounds, take a peek.

This week’s showcase has Chuck and Phil squaring off against Steph Curry and Peyton Manning. The event, Capital One’s Champions for Change, will take place at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona. Money raised will benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), while raising awareness and spotlighting opportunities for diversity and equality in sports.

And like everything else, you can bet on it.

These odds are provided by sportsbettingdime.com. Oddsmakers are confident we’ll hear some profanity from the Chuckster.
