Dustin Johnson & Rory McIlroy vs Rickie Fowler & Matthew Wolff Preview
Like the rest of the sports world, professional golf has been put on hold. However, some of the best in the world are ready to hit the links for a good cause at the TaylorMade Driving Relief at Seminole Golf Club in Florida.
The matchup will pit Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson taking on Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff. It will be a skins team event. The lowest ball for each team counts and ties carry over to the next hole. The money raised will go towards COVID-19 relief efforts.
The team of McIlroy-Johnson will compete on behalf of the American Nurses Foundation while Fowler-Wolff play for the CDC Foundation. The total amount on the line is $3 million, with additional bonus money up for grabs with $25,000 being paid for a birdie, $50,000 for an eagle and $150,000 for a hole-in-one.
“Just been trying to stay as patient as possible,” McIlroy told ESPN. “For a tour player to spend this prolonged length of time at home … you’re just trying to find ways to fill your time. I think if anything, just appreciate the little things, the things that we took for granted before this all happened.”
It’s important for the golfers to get back golfing and competing, something they haven’t done since on the PGA Tour since the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in mid-March.
“I’m excited to get back to play,” Fowler said. “It’s been the longest break I’ve ever had, the most time I’ve been able to spend at home. Been looking at it the best way possible. At the end of the day, we all love to compete, so I think that’s why you’re seeing a lot of guys are going to be playing the first few events as soon as they can.”
With live sports trickling back onto the scene, Florida has played a big part, allowing things like the UFC function in the state with strict guidelines. For the four golfers, it’s not much of a trip, with all of them living in the state.
“It’s definitely exciting just to play,” Johnson told ESPN. “We’ve got four guys who all live down here and we like to play, so it’s fun to get out and play a match. Obviously, with no live sports really on right now … I think the world needs something to watch, so I think hopefully we can go out and put on a good show, and it’s for a great cause.”
