ESPN Monday Night Football buses have arrived at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound to prepare for Capital One’s “The Match: Champions for Charity” this Sunday, May 24th, with Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. The match will be televised by Turner Sports (TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN) from 3-7 p.m. EST.
Not only can golf fans starved for live competition see some of the game’s greats raising millions of dollars for a noble cause, they will get a rare look at where the rich and famous hone their games.
“The Match: Champions for Charity” follows another COVID-19 relief match which took place at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach last week, which hosted Rory Mcllroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, and Matthew Wolff.
In addition to the millions of dollars raised for COVID-19 relief, these matches will serve as a small litmus test of what professional golf will look like when the PGA Tour plans to return June 11 at the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.
There won’t be fans for the first four PGA Tour events, just as there won’t be spectators at Seminole and the Medalist. Social distancing will be required and pins will remain in the hole with foam in the cup to keep the ball from dropping to the bottom.
You can keep up with the match online by watching the ESPN leaderboard.
