Turner Sports will present the next installment of Capital One’s The Match, the Sports Emmy-nominated premier live golf event series, which will bring together two of golf’s most intense and competitive rivals – Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka – in a head-to-head showdown. 

TNT will exclusively televise the 12-hole event, to be held the day after Thanksgiving — Friday, Nov. 26 — with live coverage beginning at 1 p.m. from Wynn Las Vegas, home of top-ranked Wynn Golf Course, the only golf course on the Las Vegas strip. TNT’s presentation of Capital One’s The Match will also be simulcast on TBS, truTV and HLN.

DeChambeau won in his first time competing in Capital One’s The Match – pairing with Aaron Rodgers – this past July, when they topped Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. Winner of the 2020 U.S. Open and an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour overall, DeChambeau is currently the No. 7-ranked player in the World.

This will be Koepka’s first appearance as a competitor in Capital One’s The Match, though through his foundation he donated $100,000 to COVID-19 relief efforts during Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Charity in May 2020 in connection with a memorable front-nine birdie from Brady. Koepka also owns eight PGA Tour titles, including four Major Championship victories over a three-year span.

Live coverage of the match play event will once again feature unprecedented access with players having open mics throughout the entire competition, including the capability to communicate directly with their competitor and the broadcast commentators.
