Driving Relief live stream: how to watch today’s charity golf game with Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler
It's been a grim couple of months for golfers and golf fans, with 2020 The Masters postponed to November and this year's Open Championship cancelled entirely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Things are looking up now, though, as four of golf's best return to the tee box today for a charity skins match. Here's how to watch Driving Relief online and live stream the golf action today, where it's Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy vs Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff.
Today's course is the Donald Ross-designed Seminole Country Club in Juno Beach, Florida – a superb venue by all accounts. The Driving Relief skins match sees world no.1 Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland paired with American Dustin Johnson, who's currently no.5 in the PGA Tour rankings.
They'll be competing against an Oklahoma State all-star team of Rickie Fowler and Matthew Woolf. Rickie is a familiar face on the Tour, with nine victories to his name and an agonizing habit of falling just short at the majors, where he's placed second in the Masters, US Open and British Open – and third in the PGA Championship.
You'll likely be able to spot him from afar due to his penchant for donning Sooner orange on Sunday in tribute to his alma mater, though golf fans may be less familiar with Matthew Woolf.
They might not be for long. The 21-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the game and turned pro in 2019 after winning the 2018 NCAA Division I Championship at Oklahoma State. He already has one PGA Tour victory to his name and you won't easily forget him once you've seen him tee-off, due to his rather…unconventional swing.
The format this Sunday is a best-ball skins game, and Driving Relief boasts a hefty $3m purse – all of which will go directly to the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation to aid their fight against the coronavirus. An additional $1m birdie and eagle pool will raise funds for Off the Plate, a charity initiative that helps frontline healthcare workers and shift employees affected by the pandemic – and you can make a donation too, if you wish, via the PGA Tour website.
Now that you know what this skins game is all about, here's how to live stream Driving Relief and watch today's golf from anywhere in the world – including for free!
