You might have missed out on the action from the MGM Resorts The Challenge Japan Skins match between Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama, due to the fact it was on in the middle of the night and on GOLFTV, but it was certainly an entertaining event.
Jason Day was the winner, taking home $210,000 and fans around the world were loving the entertainment between the four world stars. During the event all four players wore microphones, meaning those watching on TV could hear everything the players were saying.

Throughout the event, the players were dishing out banter at each other and golf fans were absolutely loving it and are now crying out for more microphones to be used on the PGA Tour.
The banter started from the tee box, when GOLFTV's Henni Zuel was introducing Woods on the first tee, listing out the 15-time major champion's achievements, Day sarcastically said 'alright' as if he had heard enough. Straight after Woods' tee shot, McIlroy jumped in with some banter of his own, jokingly telling Woods that he had hit someone in the crowd.
Watch this clip below from the PGA Tour, highlighting some of the best mic'd up moments:

But as Woods found out on day one when racing into a share of the lead at the ZOZO Championship, they can be pretty dangerous too.
Mind your head, Tiger...
