The match was played as teams with Woods and Manning taking on Mickelson and Brady. Woods and Manning emerged victorious.
"Phil said he was nervous, so imagine us,'' Manning said afterward. "To go behind the ropes and get in these guys world and in the arena with them was really an incredible experience.
"I was not comfortable the whole time but raising $20 million as people are going through such tough times, it's something I'll always remember and cherish.''
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson contributed to the donations, offering up 100,000 meals if anyone hit it within 12 feet off the tee on the Par 3, 16th. Three golfers were able to put the ball close enough and he ending up donating 300,000 meals.
“It’s great, the fact that we all came together and we were able to raise $20 million for those that have been so severely affected,” Woods said, via Gray. “This is our arena. This is what we do. We couldn’t imagine going out onto the field and doing what they do.”
