Phil Mickelson finally ended "The Match" with Tiger Woods by knocking in a $9 million 5-foot birdie on the 22nd hole, a contrived 93-yard par 3 that included a tee box set on the practice green so lights could be set up for the players. The birdie followed three playoff pars from both legends (two on the 93-yard hole) after the pair was all square following 18 regulation holes at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas.

It almost ended about 90 minutes before the temporary lights and temporary green was set up. Mickelson was 1 up on Woods and had him on the ropes going to the 17th hole, a long par 3. Lefty hit a great approach where a birdie would have closed the match. But of course, Woods chipped in from the back of the green to win the hole and pull all square. Mickelson quipped, "You've been doing that crap to me for 20 years, I'm not sure why I'd be surprised now."

All About prize Money.

 Despite being outside the world's top 10 and winning few tournaments, Woods and Mickelson still earned more money last year than any other golfers - $43.3m (£33.6m) and $41.3m (£32.1m) respectively - according to sports finance experts Forbes.

 The bravado started at Tuesday's news conference when Mickelson laid down a $100,000 (£77,600) wager that Woods would not birdie the first hole. Woods told him to double it to $200,000 (£155,200).

Leaders Scoreboard: All 22 holes 1 by 1 detail:

Scoreboard: Mickelson wins 1 up in 22 holes

22nd hole: Par 3, 93 yards

Woods finally hits the green but misses his putt from inside 10 feet. Mickelson, inside 5 feet this time, makes his and wins the $9 million.

21st hole: Par 3, 93 yards

After Woods airmails the green -- again -- Mickelson stuffs his shot to 5 feet, 11 inches. And he misses. Mickelson doesn't make Woods make his 5-footer to halve the hole. "I don't want to win that way," Mickelson says.

20th hole: Par 3, 93 yards

This wasn't a real hole. This was invented, a tee on the practice putting green. Tiger airmails the green, but gets up and down for par. Mickelson misses from just inside 18 feet. On we go ...

19th hole: Par 5, 500 yards
Woods grumbled to himself all day that he couldn't hit a good putt. With a putt just inside 8 feet to win the whole thing, Woods misses again. On we go ...

18th hole: Par 5, 500 yards

After the drama on 17, the two head to 18 with all $9 million riding on the short par-5. Woods goes just over the back of the green in two; Mickelson hits the center of the green in two. Woods makes his 5-footer for birdie, then concedes Mickelson's 4-footer. On we go ...

17th hole: Par 3, 150 yards

Woods loves his tee shot, but it goes too far. Doesn't matter. Woods chips in from the back fringe for birdie. "Like old times," Woods says to caddie Joe LaCava. Mickelson misses his birdie attempt

16th hole: Par 5, 626 yards

The same story continues ... two pars. Both have a chance at the long par-5, but as has been the case all day, neither can make anything happen.

15th hole: Par 4, 467 yards

See if this sounds familiar: Both have to scramble for par. Mickelson hits a perfect, classic Phil flop shot to kick-in range. Woods hits an awful chip after missing the green and then misses the putt to fall back into a hole with three holes left.

14th hole: Par 4, 488 yards

Finally, a longest-drive challenge ... and neither hits the fairway. So much for that. That means nobody gets the $100,000 for that side bet. But both hit fantastic second shots from the fairway bunker, leaving each with birdie putts inside 15 feet. Mickelson misses on the edge on the low side, Woods misses on the edge on the high side.

13th hole: Par 3, 213 yards

Mickelson talks Woods into another closest-to-the-pin, this one for $300,000. And Mickelson wins again, curling one inside 10 feet while Woods settles in at 15 feet. Woods cannot convert, missing narrowly on the high side. Mickelson confidently walks up to his and drills it in the heart to even things up again.

12th hole: Par 4, 394 yards

Woods hits a perfect drive. Hits his second shot to 2 feet. Mickelson concedes the short one to Woods, then misses his long putt. Woods grabs his first lead. The 11th and 12th holes could be where Woods turned this match around and ran away with things.

11th hole: Par 4, 284 yards

Both players take a swipe at the reachable par 4. They agree on another side bet: Either makes eagle, it is worth $200,000. Both tee shots just miss the green, but Woods' ball comes to rest in an easier spot. He chips up close for a conceded birdie. Mickelson's flop runs 12 feet by the hole. He can't convert the putt and Woods wins the hole.

10th hole: Par 4, 438 yards

Another hole, another pair of pars. Woods has to scramble for his, while Mickelson two-putts his way in.

9th hole: Par 4, 391 yards

Things get interesting at No. 9. On the tee, they bet $100,000 if somebody makes an eagle. After two good tee shots, they up it $1 million. Neither comes close. In fact, both hit atrocious second shots with short irons in hand. Both end up scrambling their way to pars.

Eighth hole: Par 3, 190 yards

Tiger gives another shot at a closest-to-the-pin bet, this one for $200,000. Woods hits a poor shot, some 40 feet from the hole. Mickelson hits almost the same shot, but his rolls back and stops at 38 feet. Another bet on the putts.

Seventh hole: Par 5, 557 yards

With both balls in the fairway off the tee, Woods tries to coax Mickelson into a side bet. Whoever has the best score on the hole, starting with their second shots, for $200,000. Given Woods hit it 40 yards past Mickelson, Phil tries to negotiate some odds.

Sixth hole: Par 4, 516 yards

Both players with makeable birdie putts. Neither even threatens the hole. Two pars. Another hole halved. The biggest thing? Tiger is not happy with how he is playing. A lot of mumbling to himself.

Fifth hole: Par 3, 137 yards

A little side action on this one: $100,000 for closest to the pin. That's an easy payout for Mickelson, who knocks one close while Woods misses way right. As for the match, Woods navigates a long two-putt and Mickelson misses from inside 8 feet -- worse yet, he left the putt short -- as the hole gets halved.

Fourth hole: Par 5, 564 yards

The first good-good of the match. Woods wide off the tee, but finds his way to get in position for a 5-footer for birdie. Mickelson finds fairway and is right next to the green in two. He chips to 5 feet. They pause for a moment or two, then agree both putts are good and move on.

Third hole: Par 4, 476 yards

They take different routes to the hole, but both end up with par. Woods is wild off the tee and has to scramble, sliding his par putt in the side door. Mickelson plays steady -- fairway, green, two putts. Different ways to make par, but same end result.

Second hole: Par 4, 430 yards

First hiccup. After both players miss the green with short irons in their hands, Woods cannot convert from inside 3 feet. The fun of match play: Make the opponent putt 'em.

First hole: Par 4, 379 yards

Woods and Mickelson both hit iron off the first tee and leave themselves in fine shape. Tiger hits his approach to 10 feet, but his birdie slides past on the right side. Phil has 9.1 feet for birdie, which is worth more than just a 1-up lead. His pre-round side bet was that he would make a birdie at No. 1, a wager worth $200,000.

The putt misses, and the hole is halved. But ... Mickelson loses $200,000.

"That hurts the pocket," Woods says.
