A $10 million donation to coronavirus relief efforts is part of the plan unveiled Thursday for “The Match: Champions for Charity,” to be played May 24 at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
Turner Sports made the announcement of the donation that will accompany the previously announced extension of the original Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson match. The event will also include former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and new Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady.
Woods will team with Manning and Mickelson with Brady in an 18-hole match that will include nine holes of best ball and nine holes of modified alternate shot, to be televised by TNT and TBS at 3 p.m. ET.
According to the event organizers, the players will collectively make a $10 million donation to relief efforts. Fundraising will also include a partnership with the All In Challenge — an initiative that is providing food to those in need — as well as on-course competitive challenges for charity.
The event will be played without spectators. Players will not use caddies during the event but will ride in their own carts.
