Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson won’t be the only big names competing for a good cause during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson will pair up against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a two-man team skins game that will benefit relief efforts for COVID-19.

The event will take place on May 17 from 2-6pm ET as part of the TaylorMade Driving Relief at the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

NBC, NBC Sports Network, Golf Channel and Sky Sports will air the event live. UnitedHealth Group has pledged $3 million in support of the CFC Foundation and American Nurses Foundation.
