Tiger Woods & Peyton Manning beat Tom Brady & Phil Mickelson in $20m charity match

Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning beat Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in a charity golf match which raised $20m (£16.4m) for coronavirus relief efforts in the United States.

Legendary NFL quarterback Brady hit the shot of the day, holing out from the fairway on the seventh.

“I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton,” said Woods. “This is our arena, this is what we do for a living.

“I couldn’t imagine going on the field and do what they do,” he added.

The event was played between four of America’s biggest sports stars at a rainy Medalist Golf Club in Florida – Woods’ home course – with no caddies and players driving their own golf buggies.

It follows Rory McIlroy’s £4m skins event last week involving Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff also in aid of charity.

The 18-hole match included on-course challenges for charitable funds – and plenty of trash talk.

Six-time Superbowl winner Brady had been getting a hard time from NBA great and commentator Charles Barkley just before his 100-yard wedge shot found the hole.

Then, after giving a short speech, Brady – who joined Tampa Bay in March after 20 years with New England – then bent down and split his pants as he picked up the ball from the cup.

The event comes two-and-a-half weeks before the PGA Tour plans to resume its season on 11 June.

Woods, who last competed in February and then withdrew from a number of tournaments with a back injury, said he is healthy and ready to play when the Tour resumes.

As Tom Brady, Peyton Manning play in ‘The Match,’ which other pro athletes are elite golfers?

Sure, some sports are back. But "sports" as we know them are largely still on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic. Today is Day 74 without sports. ⛳️

The italicized portion of text that appears above this sentence is partially false. Yes, "sports" are still not yet back. But there will be appointment sports television Sunday, particularly for golf fans, with Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning teaming up against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in "The Match: Champions for Charity" event (3 p.m. ET on TNT, TBS and truTV) that will raise $10 million for COVID-19-related charity. 

In terms of celebrity, that's about as heavy-hitting of a foursome as they come. Plenty of backstory exists between the rivalries Mickelson and Woods shared on the course and the battles Brady and Manning dueled out on the football field.  

The event also got us thinking. If Brady and Manning weren't involved, who would be an adequate replacement? 

Steph Curry: This guy doesn't only have pinpoint accuracy from 3-point range. The sharpshooter's handicap has dipped to as low as 1.5. The Golden State Warriors guard is seriously invested in the game, funding Howard University's men's and women's programs. Curry has the superstar appeal and elite golf game to headline any type of event such as this.

Tony Romo: We know Romo can announce the heck out of a football game. He's also a talented golfer, and he's used some sponsor exemptions to play in PGA Tour events (four times in the last two years). Say CBS were to have the rights — a live mic on Romo with him consistently bantering with NFL play-by-play partner Jim Nantz would be gold. 

John Smoltz: Said Woods of the former MLB pitcher: "I had not ever played with an amateur that had ever shot the scores he shot." That's more than enough approval right there. Calling the World Series over the last few years for Fox, Smoltz has maintained a public presence. 

Michael Jordan: Side bets are going to be an anticipated offshoot of any celebrity foursome. Adding Jordan would take it to another level. He plays a lot, and having a camera on him for three consecutive hours in a competitive environment might allow viewers to learn more about him than they did during "The Last Dance."

Tiger Woods ready to tear apart Tom Brady in The Match: Champions for Charity

Tiger Woods couldn’t resist a little last-minute needling before Monday’s charity showdown with Phil Mickelson, with a deadpan prediction that he and partner Peyton Manning would dominate.

“At the end of the day, our team’s going to win, it’s just a matter of how much we’re going to win by,” 15-time major champion Woods said in an interview posted on Golf Digest’s YouTube channel.

“Do we keep it close, do we blow them out … we don’t want to have viewers turn off if we’re 9-up through nine, that’s probably not going to be good. So we’ll just be 8-up through nine — something like that.”

You can watch The Match: Champions for Charity live on CNN (Channel 607) on Foxtel on Monday morning from 5am AET

Five-time major winner Mickelson will team with Tom Brady, who recently signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after winning six Super Bowl titles in 20 years with the New England Patriots.

The 18-hole match will include nine holes of four-ball and nine holes of modified alternate shot, with on-course challenges for charitable funds in addition to the $10 million pledged.

With the US PGA Tour and European Tour on hiatus amid the coronavirus pandemic, the made-for-TV event will be a welcome glimpse of live sports action, and the long rivalries among the players promise a little intensity even if it’s only a battle for bragging rights.

Television commentators include major winners Trevor Immelman and Jordan Spieth, along with Charles Barkley, the NBA great turned outspoken broadcaster who is the owner of a famously disjointed golf swing.

Woods and Manning look to have the edge going in.

Woods is a regular at Medallist golf course in Hobe Sound, Florida, and Manning boasts a slightly better handicap than Brady — who has had less time to focus on his golf game as he adjusts to life with a new team amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the legion of Woods-watchers around the globe, it will be a chance to see just how far the 44-year-old’s fitness has come since he lurched to a 68th-place finish at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles in February.

Continuing trouble with his balky back saw him skip the WGC Mexico Championship, the Honda Classic and the Arnold Palmer Invitational, as well as the Players Championship — which was shut down early by coronavirus concerns.

Woods said in April he would have been ready for his Masters title defence — which is now set to come in November.

“Night and day,” he said of the improvement since February.

While the Woods-Mickelson rivalry may have lost some of its sizzle, Manning and Brady could add intrigue.

“They grew up playing football, not golf, but they’re going out of their comfort zone on national TV to showcase their golf game,” Mickelson said.

“That’s not an easy thing to do. For them to do that and create a fun, entertaining environment that’s helping others, I have a lot of respect for it.”

Golf course rules: How many people can play golf at any one time?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation on Sunday and outlined some modifications to the lockdown measures. Among the changes are unlimited amounts of exercise and the availability of some sporting activities, such as golf, tennis and fishing.

How many people can play golf at one time?

While golf courses may be reopening, rules have been put in place to maintain social distancing and to keep players safe.

People can now play golf on their own or with members of their household.

You can also play two-ball with one person not from your household, keeping two metres apart at all times.

ALSO SEE – Golf course rules during coronavirus: Tee off times, distance, players

The R&A say two, three or four-balls can be played among members of the same household at the discretion of the golf club.

A number of other rules have also been introduced such as staggered tee times, no handshakes and no touching the flags.

A statement from the R&A read: “As a sport we must work together to resume play responsibly as and when the relevant Government determines it is safe to do so.

  • Driving Relief: When is McIlroy, Johnson vs Fowler, Wolff skins match?

“We must ensure that the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved from golfers, to club staff and greenkeepers is maintained at all times.

“Golf clubs and golfers have observed the lockdown very well and must keep it up and act responsibly as play resumes.”

Jeremy Tomlinson, chief executive of England Golf, praised the efforts being made to facilitate golf’s return.

“The hours since lockdown easing was announced – allowing golf to be one of the first sports to return – have been truly hectic,” he said in a statement.

“I’d like to acknowledge the amazing work that has been going on in the background to prepare for golf’s comeback.

“In challenging times, greenkeepers deserve a medal for the work they have put in to tend our courses and make sure that with just 48 hours’ notice they were ready for play.

“General Managers, our Pro’s, committee members, all other golf club staff and volunteers have been through the mill and their Herculean efforts in trying to keep clubs afloat and communicating with members cannot be overlooked.”

Golf courses can reopen in Wales, Welsh Government confirms

Golf courses in Wales have been given the green light to reopen, after new information was issued by the Welsh Government.

Wales Golf announced clubs were now permitted to reopen at their own discretion after the Welsh Government clarified courses were not included on the list of businesses that must remain closed.

Golfers, however, will need to be ‘local’ to a course in order not to breach restrictions on travelling for exercise, with Wales Golf advising clubs to reopen no earlier than Monday May 18.

In a statement, Wales Golf said: “Following recent Welsh Government announcements and the revision of certain Covid-19 related restrictions, golf clubs are permitted to open if they so wish.

“It is entirely at each golf club’s discretion as to whether they choose to open and if so when they choose to do so. We would advise that clubs that do wish to re-open do not do so immediately, so as to ensure they have sufficient protocols in place to adhere to these guidelines, which we will be on hand to assist with.”

“This would allow for a managed and co-ordinated reintroduction of golf across Wales from next Monday 18 May at the earliest.”

Regulations in Wales state that exercise should be done locally and that people cannot drive to exercise out of their local area, although there is no geographical benchmark set for what classifies as ‘local’.

Guidance from the Welsh Government on leaving home to exercise says: “We have deliberately not defined this more precisely as it could be seen to be arbitrary and it will also depend on the circumstances.

Tommy Fleetwood unlikely to play in the PGA Tour due to family

Tommy Fleetwood unlikely to take part in the PGA Tour next month as he is reluctant to leave his family after a ‘strange year’ – but insists he is aiming to win the World Golf Championships and the Ryder Cup when he returns

  • Tommy Fleetwood has said he doesn’t want to leave his family for four months 
  • Fleetwood would also have to two weeks of quarantine either side of the event
  • He says the PGA Tour ‘is simply not a consideration’ unless his family joins him
  • However he believes that is unlikely following what has been a ‘strange year’
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

Tommy Fleetwood will be an almost certain absentee when the PGA Tour makes its much-heralded return in Texas next month.

In common with 24 other international players currently living outside the US, the 29-year-old Englishman spent Monday wrestling with a difficult dilemma.

The American-based PGA Tour has imposed a deadline of Tuesday for players to provide information for the special visas needed to enter America and play at Colonial.

Tommy Fleetwood will be an almost certain absentee when the PGA Tour returns next month

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan outlined plans to resume a full schedule in mid-June

‘On the one hand, you want to get back to playing tournament golf as soon as you can, but to do that I’d have two weeks of quarantine before the event and now two more weeks when I got back,’ said the world No 10. ‘That’s a lot of time and particularly after this long period of lockdown, so it’s very unlikely I’ll be there for Colonial.’

While many of the American-based players have been practising every day in the US in readiness for the resumption, the likes of Fleetwood, Matt Fitzpatrick and London-based Francesco Molinari have been unable to play at all.

Now they are facing another considerable handicap, or at least those with families like Fleetwood and Molinari. Restrictions imposed on international travel mean, in practical terms, that once a player leaves these shores it would not make much sense to return until after the US Open or the Ryder Cup in late September.

Matt Fitzpatrick and Francesco Molinari (pictured), who is based in the UK, haven’t trained 

‘I’m not going to travel to America and stay away for four months, that is simply not a consideration,’ said Fleetwood, who lives with wife Clare, teenage stepboys Oscar and Mo, and young son Frankie, in Cheshire. 

A more likely plan will be to travel to America in mid-July, and stay until the Ryder Cup — if it takes place.

‘One ideal scenario is we all spend the summer as a family in America but we’ll have to talk it through and see if the boys want to be away, after such a strange year,’ he said.

CAN YOU PLAY GOLF NOW? 

So you can play golf in twoballs in England from tomorrow but not in the neighbouring country known as the Home of Golf.

You can play, from Monday, in Ireland but not in Northern Ireland. As for Ian Woosnam’s old course, Llanymynech, with a postal address in Shropshire but with 15 of the 18 holes

actually, in Wales — where you cannot play — they are awaiting clarification if they can open.

Topping it all, the Prime Minister really did tell us yesterday to use…good old British common sense.

Fleetwood has been greatly cheered by the reopening of courses in England on Wednesday. 

A member of four clubs in the North West, including two links beauties in West Lancs and Hillside, he said: ‘I think it’s going to do a lot of people an enormous amount of good in terms of physical and mental health. 

‘You can hit as many balls as you want indoors but I’ve always said that golf was meant to be played outside. I can’t wait to play with my dad, because it’s been a while since I’ve seen him.’

As for which of the three lockdown groups he falls into — resisters, sufferers or accepters — he is definitely the latter.

‘I’ve loved it, to be honest,’ he said. ‘I think if you spend a lot of time on the road, experiencing the day-to-day routine at home is a beautiful thing. 

‘I’ve had the chance to watch little Frankie grow, the two step boys at their stage in life, and I sleep next to my wife every night. Obviously I’d loved it to have been under different circumstances but I’ve been grateful for the time we’ve had together.’

Unless something happens with regard to the prohibitive quarantine restrictions, it is quite possible Fleetwood will go four months without competition, before playing in Memphis in July. If that happens, he does not intend to give himself a free pass.

‘When I do play again I won’t be writing anything off to rust, that’s for sure,’ he said. ‘It’s about finding solutions to different problems, and I’ll be ready to go. 

‘I might have to rehash my goals a little, but there will still be three majors to play for, World Golf Championships, a Race to Dubai and possibly a Ryder Cup. I’ll be starting each of them aiming to win.’ 

Fleetwood says he will be aiming to win the World Golf Championships and the Ryder Cup

Coronavirus: How will golf differ when courses reopen in England?

Golf is one of sport’s more traditional pursuits, but as courses in England ready themselves for resumption it will return as a somewhat different game, albeit perhaps better co-ordinated and with potential to grow in popularity.

Governing bodies worked closely to formulate protocols to make golf safe amid coronavirus restrictions and insiders welcome the government’s relaxation of restrictions, especially after one of the wettest winters on record caused widespread course closures.

For many areas of the golf industry, problems remain. While recreational play revives, overheads have to be covered with limited revenue streams, and professional golf still faces an uncertain future.

But golf is a game that lends itself to social distancing and this means amateur hackers can reacquaint themselves with their clubs and courses as early as this Wednesday, albeit not in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – where different restrictions apply.

Here’s how golf will differ while the battle against Covid-19 continues:

No friendly fourballs

For the time being, the traditional friendly fourball is a thing of the past. Government rules say exercise can only be taken with members of the same household or with one other person from a different household. For golf, this means playing on your own or with one other person or within your family group.

Most venues will insist on tee times being pre-booked and players will need to arrive shortly before they start, and leave as soon as rounds are completed.

Clubs will be encouraging social matchplay rather than strokeplay competitions, and the usual practice of swapping scorecards is not allowed.

No touching the flag

When the updated 2019 version of the rules was published, provision was made for golfers to be able to putt with the flag still in the hole.

This was brought in to help speed up play, but it is now an essential component of the game.

No-one should be allowed to touch the flagstick to help prevent transmission of the virus. Putting into an empty cup is no longer an option.

Smooth sand with your feet

Rakes located to smooth footprints in bunkers pose another risk and will be removed from courses.

The onus will be on players to smooth over the sand with their feet, but some clubs will also allow placing the ball onto a better lie to eliminate the injustice of landing in the dents left by someone else’s size nines.

The ball won’t drop

The eternal problem for all golfers is the ball refusing to drop into the hole.

This now becomes the absolute norm, even for the best putts, because courses will need to use hole-filling devices (such as a piece of foam) that prevent holed putts from dropping beneath the surface of the green.

This makes it easier to pick up the ball without touching any other surface.

Your ball will get dirty

That is a fact of life in these times.

Ball washers, usually located next to teeing grounds, are to be taken out of use. The same applies to benches and seats dotted around courses, which now become a form of out of bounds.

And – traditionalists look away – changing in the car park is OK.

Many golf clubs are affronted by the thought a player would change their shoes anywhere other than in the locker room. But these facilities, including clubhouses, will remain shut even when courses are open.

That means changing into your spikes in the car park is not only all right, it is actively encouraged.

Greens staff need to be kept safe

Keeping greens staff safe and healthy is vital.

All greenkeepers must work within social distancing protocols and many clubs are splitting teams into pods to try to ensure a Covid-19 outbreak does not affect an entire greens staff.

Putting surfaces must be regularly mown otherwise they are lost forever. Some course managers and staff are being schooled on how to operate mowers in case greenkeeping staff become infected.

There is a co-ordinated approach

The current emergency has prompted an unprecedented coming together of golf authorities.

Organisations such as the Professional Golfers’ Association, England Golf, the R&A, the Golf Course Managers’ Association and the body representing British and international greenkeepers have united to promote golf’s cause.

Uniform safety measures have been thrashed out by these entities.

“The big thing is they are noticeably working together,” said one club manager. “The level of communication has been very good.

“I wonder if this could be a big opportunity for golf because there are lots of other things you still can’t do in society.”

Golf finances still being hit

Although golfers will be playing again, economic challenges remain.

With clubhouses and professional shops shut, additional revenue streams will be curtailed. Clubs will prioritise their members and the number of starting slots will be limited by smaller playing groups and spaced-out tee times.

Clubs will need employees to prepare courses for play but with limited revenue in return.

Some pay-and-play facilities may see a boost in interest, with golf one of the few sports that can be played at the moment.

When will we see the professionals in action?

The Korean LPGA resumes behind closed doors this week. Three of the top 10 players in the women’s world rankings – Sung Hyun Park, Sei Young Kim and Jeongeun Lee6 – are scheduled to compete in the KLPGA Championship at Lakewood Country Club in Yangju.

On Sunday, Rory McIlroy partners Dustin Johnson against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a televised charity match at Seminole in Florida.

The PGA Tour is due to resume in Texas on June 11, with at least the first four events to be played without spectators. The European Tour hope to resume later in the summer.

There are strong rumours the British Masters will start a week earlier than scheduled on 23 July and mark the start of four tournaments in a row to be held in Britain.

Spare a thought for Llanmynech Golf Club

Can play resume on the course where Masters winner Ian Woosnam learned the game?

It is located between Welshpool and Shrewsbury, straddling the Wales/England border.

The fourth green is in England, as are the fifth and sixth holes – but the rest of the course is in Wales, where golf is still banned.

Club officials are awaiting guidance.

Memorial Tournament to use tracking devices

Memorial Tournament to use frequency identification chips in tournament badges to track any individual round the course to ensure social distancing at July event

  • The Memorial Tournament – founded by Jack Nicklaus – begins on July 16
  • Organisers have come up with a high-tech solution for social distancing 
  • Chips in tournament badges will be able to track individuals round the course

Organisers of the Memorial Tournament — founded by Jack Nicklaus — have come up with a high-tech solution for social distancing at the July event.

Frequency identification chips in tournament badges, previously used to monitor entrances and exits, will be able to track any individual round the course, including a limited number of spectators.

‘At any time we can know around the golf course how many people are collecting in a certain area,’ said tournament director Dan Sullivan.  

Organisers of the Memorial Tournament have come up with a solution for social distancing

‘We’re going to use that technology to make sure that we’re protecting everyone around us and protecting the folks who are inside those various venues.

‘We will also make sure we’re monitoring effectively and producing a tournament everyone can be comfortable with.’

The plan is one of several post-coronavirus protocols which include limiting ticket sales, closing grandstands, banning beer sales and wearing masks.

The PGA Tour released a revised schedule in April with the first four events to be behind closed doors. First up is the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas, starting on June 11.

The John Deere Classic in Illinois at the start of July has been pencilled in as the first to allow spectators. Next is the Memorial in Ohio, starting on July 16.

The tournament, founded by Jack Nicklaus (R), was won by Patrick Cantlay last year

Joost Luiten overcame an 18-strong field, including Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer, to win the inaugural BMW Indoor Invitational. His six-under-par 66 clinched the one-round event, with all players taking part from home on a golf simulator.
