TaylorMade Driving Relief
May 17, 2020
TaylorMade Driving Relief match will be held (and televised) Sunday, May 17, 2020 at Seminole Golf Club, Juno Beach, FL.
The skins match, with will be played without spectators, will pit Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff against Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson.
The following information is from golf.com:
“In a skins game, each hole is played separately. The player with the lowest score earns the “skin” for that hole, or a pre-determined amount of money. If a hole is tied, the skin carries over to the next hole until someone wins, making it possible for a player to win several skins on one hole.
For the match at Seminole, each player will play their own ball, with the lowest score among each team counting toward the match. So if McIlroy makes 4 on the 1st hole, and the other three players make a 5 or worse, team Rory-DJ wins the skin.
One major difference between this and a normal skins match is that all money earned will go directly to charities selected by the players. The first six holes will be worth $50,000 each, Nos. 7-16 will be worth $100,000, the 17th hole will be worth $200,000, and the final hole will be worth a $500,000 skin. Each team will also begin with $500,000.
As for the specific charities being supported, McIlroy and Johnson will play for the American Nurses Foundation, and Fowler and Wolff will play for the CDC Foundation.
Live coverage will be provided from 2-6 p.m. ET. For TV viewers, the action will be broadcast on NBC, Golf Channel and NBCSN.”
