Live golf is back today: Here’s everything you need to know

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.

Due to strict social distancing guidelines in Florida, there will be no caddies at Seminole. Instead the players will carry their own bags.

The $3 million match, supported by the United Health Group to raise money for the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation, will be played under strict social distancing guidelines while testing measures will take place to protect the health of the players, production crews and others on site.

Additionally, Farmers Insurance have pledged $1 million while the PGA Tour will run text and online donation platforms throughout the event to raise additional funds for Covid-19 relief charities.
