On Sunday pro golf returned on TV with the TaylorMade Driving Relief between Rory McIlroy/Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler/Matthew Wolff teams. The match was played in skins format at Seminole Golf Club in Florida. It had one goal – to raise money for COVID-19 relief funds. During the match the four players raised money with every birdie they made and with all different challenges they got during the round. They managed to raise more than $5.5 million. The challenge is over, but you still can donate on the following link: Donate
This was the first live streamed golf with leading world players since March 12 when the Players was interrupted. Yesterday’s match showed how golf will look without spectators. There was limited number of people on the course and all of them were social distancing. Players were not allowed to use their caddies and they were carrying their own bags. All four players wore shorts. As result the question should PGA Tour allow players to wear shorts during regular tour tournaments was raised again.
The season on the PGA Tour is scheduled to resume on June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas.
