Eddie Pepperell is never one to shy away from voicing his opinion on Twitter, so it probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise he's BLASTED the fact Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are playing for $9 million in Las Vegas on Friday night.



In the eyes of the recent British Masters champion, 'The Match' is "everything that golf shouldn't be right now."

Pepperell, 27, tweeted on Thursday: 



Fellow Tour pro Peter Uihlein, however, has a completely different take on matters.

Taking to Twitter to counter Pepperell's criticism, Uihlein alluded to the fact that without these two golfing greats then the likes of Pepperell wouldn't be playing for the pay cheques they currently are on Tour. 

Uihlein, 29, tweeted shortly after Pepperell: 



The Englishman's views come off the back of Spain's Jon Rahm claiming the Woods vs Mickelson showdown has "come 10 years too late."

While the Woods vs Mickelson clash will be a pay-per-view event for those in the United States, those in the UK are able to watch it for free on Sky Sports Golf
