Phil Mickelson says he is "working on" a rematch with Tiger Woods.

The two PGA titans tangled in "The Match: Tiger vs. Phil," a made-for-TV clash on Nov. 23, 2018, at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Mickelson edged Woods on the fourth playoff hole.

Mickelson was asked by a Twitter user Sunday if there was "a chance" the pair might play again to give viewers something to watch while sports around the world are on hold due to COVID-19.

"Working on it," replied Mickelson, the man known as "Lefty."

When another Twitter asked if Mickelson was serious, he responded: "I don't tease. I'm kinda a sure thing."

Golf reporter Robert Lusetich tweeted that the Mickelson-Woods pay-per-view clash could feature the golfers competing alongside partners.

"Two names being mentioned? Tom Brady and Peyton Manning," Lusetich wrote.

Golf writer Larry Bohannon of the (Palm Springs, Calif.) Desert Sun replied to Lusetich's tweet, adding that the Mickelson-Woods-Brady-Manning rumor has been circulating for a few months at Madison Club in La Quinta, Calif., where Mickelson owns a home.

Manning and Brady hit golf balls together for an episode of Manning's "Peyton's Places" TV show that ran on ESPN+ in January.
