RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. (AP) -- Tiger Woods is going prime-time with three of the longest hitters in golf this summer in the Battle at the Bridges, the latest version of Monday Night Golf.

Woods will join John Daly, Phil Mickelson and Hank Kuehne in a better-ball match Aug. 2 at the Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe. The exhibition will be televised by ABC Sports at 8 p.m. EST.

"Each year we try to find something different to appeal to our prime-time audience," said Alastair Johnston, president of promoter IMG. "This year, we have assembled a field with exceptional length and skill that will appeal to all sports fans."

The winners will get $500,000 apiece, with $200,000 going to each losing player. Six holes will feature a long-drive contest, with the winning team getting $50,000 to give to a charity of their choice.

The made-for-TV exhibitions began in 1999 when Woods defeated David Duval in an 18-hole match. Subsequent matches have included players from the Champions Tour and LPGA Tour.

A year ago, Mickelson and Sergio Garcia defeated Woods and Ernie Els in the Monday night exhibition.

The teams for this year's event are yet to be chosen.
