4 of the largest names in professional golf are gearing up for a 2-on-2 skins recreation in Florida this weekend … and IT WILL AIR ON LIVE TV!!
YES, PRO GOLF IS BACK … SORTA!!!
Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will tackle Rickie Fowler and Matt Wolff on Sunday on the legendary Seminole Golf Membership in Juno Seashore … with all the winnings going to charity.
In fact, with the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, there can be social distancing protocols in place … no caddies and no carts!
The occasion, known as the “TaylorMade Driving Aid” competitors — airing on NBC and The Golf Channel — will comply with the traditional “Skins” format.
In different phrases, every gap is performed individually — with a money prize for every gap. If there’s a tie on a gap, the “pores and skin” is carried over to the following one (and the following and the following and so forth) till somebody wins.
The primary 6 holes can be value $50,00Zero every. The subsequent 10 holes can be value $100,000, the 17th gap can be value $200,000, and the ultimate gap can be value $500,000.
