It took 22 holes to declare a winner between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Friday, and in the end, it was Lefty sinking a four-foot putt for the win. Both men had chances to end it far sooner, however.

The best chance may have come back on the 19th hole, when Woods had a putt under 10 feet for the win. But Woods pushed it left, extending the match.

The 19th hole was a replay of the 18th hole. After that, a makeshift 93-yard par-three was made - with a brand new hole carved out. The 20th, 21st and 22nd holes were played there.

Here's video of Tiger missing the putt on No. 19 that would have ended it:

With the win, Mickelson will take home $9 million. He also won $400,000 in side bets, though that should all be going to charity.

While Mickelson won, it's unclear what this proved. Woods will still go down in history as one of the two best golfers to ever live.

It's unclear if there will ever be a rematch. We'll probably need to see the Pay-Per-View numbers first.
