Mark It Down -- Sunday, May 17 (Video)

That's the date for the first official live golf broadcast since folks started taking the pandemic seriously. If you missed it, here's the Morning Drive announcement from Monday morning.

You can get all the details at this link -- and there's a lot of info there -- but here are the main things you need to know:
  • The TaylorMade Driving Relief event will raise money and awareness for the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation, two organizations helping to lead COVID-19 relief efforts.
  • This will be a two-man team match play event, with Rory and DJ playing against Rickie and Matt Wolff.
  • Sponsors Farmers Insurance and UnitedHealth Group are spearheading this $3million event, and a number of charities will benefit from it. Viewers will be able to contribute as well.
  • The event will be held at Seminole Golf Club, which may be the most famous venue that most golf fans have never seen. The fact that Seminole will finally be seen on TV as a tournament host has some folks more excited than the golf itself.
  • And you can see it on Sunday, May 17, with live coverage airing from 2-6pm ET on NBC, GOLF Channel, NBCSN, Sky Sports and other PGA TOUR global media partners.
Those are the high points of the announcement, but check that link for all the details. This is going to be a pretty big charity event, and it might even be the first live sports event since the national shutdown. Could be historic!
