With the date now set the trash-talking has begun.

On a video chat involving Ernie Johnson, Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson announcing the date (May 24) and place (Medalist Golf Club, Hope Sound, Fla.), the former Colts and Broncos quarterback went on the offensive in trash-talking his former rival on the football field.

"The tournament had to be in Florida after Tom's B&E arrest. With the ankle monitor he couldn't leave the state so it had to be in Florida," Manning said, referencing Brady walking into the wrong house when trying to find Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. "Tiger and I talked to the sheriff in Tampa and he's going to be allowed to go to Palm Beach to play.

"I'll be honest, I've never played Tom very well on his home turf. Maybe this is considered a neutral site. I would have liked to have this tournament in a place where they don't like Tom very much -- Indianapolis, Denver, Boston after he betrayed them and broke their hearts. So Palm Beach is probably the best we can do.

"I think the teams are fair. I think Phil chose the right partner in Tom. Together they have 11 championships. Tiger and I have 17 the way I count it."
