Rory McIlroy will team up with Dustin Johnson to take on American duo Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a $3 million charity skins match on May 17th as televised golf returns amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the PGA Tour said on Monday.
The competition will follow strict social distancing guidelines and use appropriate testing measures to help protect the health of those involved.
“I hope we can provide some respite and entertainment for those tuning in across the globe. Dustin and I will have a lot of fun together and our games will fit well as we push to raise funds and awareness,” world number one McIlroy said.
All proceeds will go towards Covid-19 relief efforts, with McIlroy and Johnson playing for the American Nurses Foundation and Fowler and Wolff playing for the CDC Foundation.
“We’re excited about the safe and responsible return of live golf and the opportunity to raise significant funds for those on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic through the TaylorMade Driving Relief event,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said.
