Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Matthew Wolff will take part in a skins game for Covid-19 relief workers. Here are all the details
When Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson confirmed they’ll be going head to head again, the general response was along the lines of preferring to see the younger guys going up against each other in a charity golf match. Well now we’ve got it.
World No 1 Rory McIlroy will be joined by Dustin Johnson in a skins game against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff.
McIlroy and Johnson, with five majors between them, will take on five-time PGA Tour champion Fowler and up-and-coming star Wolff at Seminole Golf Club, Florida, on Sunday May 17.
The TaylorMade Driving Relief event will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
