After the success of The Match: Champions for Charity, Phil Mickelson wants to make the golf exhibition an annual event. 

Listen to your team news NOW.

On Sunday, Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning defeated Mickelson and Tom Brady to help raise $20 million for COVID-19 relief. 

Stephen Curry was locked into The Match and let it be known, he wants in on The Match 3.

Mickelson would love to have the 2x NBA MVP participate according to the LA Times.

"What if Tiger and I were to team up and take on two younger players, or what if we were to team up with younger players and have it be a real high-level golf competition?" Mickelson said. "I think there's a market for that. But you have to have some personality in there, too... I think you could showcase guys like Steph Curry and Michael Jordan or Tony Romo and Patrick Mahomes, who are all good golfers, elite talents and have great personalities."

Bryan Zuriff, a film and TV producer, originally wanted Curry to be Woods' partner on Sunday, but Manning ended up getting the call. 

"At the time I was thinking Tom and Steph Curry because Steph had just signed a deal with Callaway and he was into golf," Zuriff said.

The Match 3 will take place in 2021 and we'll have to wait to see who will participate, but one thing is certain: Tiger/Steph vs. Phil/MJ would be legendary.
