TAYLORMADE DRIVING RELIEF DETAILS HOW FANS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO FUNDRAISING EFFORTS FOR COVID-19 RELIEF

Carlsbad, Calif. (May 11, 2020) – As Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson prepare to compete against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in raising funds for COVID-19 relief efforts during TaylorMade Driving Relief supported by UnitedHealth Group – the return of televised golf – on Sunday, May 17 at Seminole Golf Club, fans at home will be able to contribute to the fundraising efforts thanks to PGA TOUR Charities through online donations and Text-To-Give options powered by GoFundMe.

 

TaylorMade Driving Relief is centered around a $3 million charity skins match supported by UnitedHealth Group to raise money and awareness for the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation. The team of McIlroy-Johnson will compete on behalf of the American Nurses Foundation while Fowler-Wolff play for the CDC Foundation.

 

Farmers Insurance® also pledged $1 million to back a birdies-and-eagle pool to benefit Off Their Plate, a fundraising initiative through World Central Kitchen that helps both frontline COVID-19 healthcare workers and impacted restaurant shift employees

 

PGA TOUR Charities’ online fundraiser is now live on GoFundMe, where fans around the world can come together and donate to support additional COVID-19 relief efforts in conjunction with TaylorMade Driving Relief, building upon the event’s initial $4 million raised. As they enjoy the competition on May 17, viewers located in the United States will also be able to donate to the fundraiser by texting ‘DRIVINGRELIEF’ to 41-411. Standard text rates apply.

 

PGA TOUR Charities’ GoFundMe will benefit qualified organizations providing or in need of COVID-19 relief.

 

For information about donating via PGA TOUR Charities’ fundraiser on GoFundMe, please visit PGATOUR.com/DrivingRelief and for more information about PGA TOUR Charities Inc. and the programs it supports, see pgatourcharities.org.

My favorite player is DJ and my second favorite is Rory.   So no guessing who I'll  be rooting for.

But I bet you could have some fun betting on the long drive for each hole, any one of the could win any hole

Team Rickie And Wolff for me. Gotta go for the underdog!

I like all four guys though, so I’m really just hoping for a good match.

Plus to me the underrated aspect of this match is a chance to see Seminole Golf Club.  A place most of us will never get to see.

Well it was put out by the TM PR department, so not that much different than what other OEM's do when listing players equipment, but I get your point.

Rickie and Wolff—I'm from Oklahoma, and it's fun to see an OSU team! Rory is one of my favorite people on tour though, but Rickie and Wolff are just easy to route for. Also, it'll be fun to watch PGA players compete live. I'm starving over here!

Super pumped to watch the event, I feel this is going to be a domination by Rickie Fowler with the help of Matthew Wolfe.  With Rick throwing his new Cobra sticks in the bag and that silky smooth putting stroke, he will be rolling in the birdies.

Wolff's Bag. 

Also these carry bags are the Flex Tech Lite.  Actually one of the best carry bags I've had.

As a fellow resident of Oklahoma I gotta go for Rickie and Wolff! I’m just happy to watch live golf again. Although revisiting past majors rounds on YouTube has been great!

Is there no caddies? Makes sense with “social distancing” for appearance but obviously these are carry bags so I’m assuming they’re carrying their own bags?

Prob just for the practice rounds, but maybe? I can’t imagine they wouldn’t have their caddy.
