Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are set to tee off in a winner-take-all grudge match later this week. On Friday, two of the world's best golfers will go head-to-head and the winner takes home a $9 million prize.

However, that purse doesn't appear to be enough for the golfers.

According to Daniel Rapaport, Phil and Tiger already have a bet for how the first hole will turn out. Mickelson reportedly bet Tiger $100,000 that he would birdie the first hole.

Woods, not one to turn down a bet, upped the ante to $200,000.

Tiger and Phil tee it up from Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas on Friday afternoon. The match kicks off at 3:00 p.m. ET.

This is likely just the first of many side-bets Tiger and Phil make throughout their round. Woods enters the match as the favorite, but Mickelson can't be ruled out.

Who will come out on top? Stay tuned.
