Live golf is back. The PGA TOUR, NBC Sports, and Sky Sports announced the Taylormade Driving Relief supported by UnitedHealth Group in the form of a $3 million skins match. The match will raise money for the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation. Additionally, Farmers Insurance began fundraising efforts with a $1 million pledge to benefit Off Their Plate.
The skins match will take place Sunday May 17th at Seminole Golf Club, marking the first televised event at this historic Donald Ross design.
20-time PGA TOUR winner Dustin Johnson and World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, will be taking on PGA TOUR winner Rickie Fowler and 2019 TOUR winner Matthew Wolff in a televised two-man team skins competition. Johnson and McIlroy will be playing for the American Nurses Foundation and Fowler/Wolff playing for the CDC Foundation.
When asked about playing the event, Dustin had this to say: “I’m really excited to team up with Rory and to get back out on the golf course. Seminole is a great venue and it will be cool to show it to the world through this event. I’m sure Rickie and Matthew will be ready for us, but hopefully Rory and I can take them and help generate a lot of money and support for charities and those affected most by COVID-19.” (via: PGATour.com)
