COVID-19: Woods, Mickelson take part in charity match, raise $20 mn

Florida, May 25 (SocialNews.XYZ) Golf greats Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, along with NFL quarterback legends Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, took part in a televised charity golf event on Sunday which helped raise $20 million for COVID-19 relief efforts.

"In the end, Woods and Manning reigned supreme on a wet afternoon in South Florida, building a lead in the best-ball portion of the competition and holding on in alternate shot for a 1-up victory. Of course, the real winner on the day--calling the clich? police--was charity, with The Match raising $20 million for COVID-19 relief," said a news report on Woods' official website, tigerwoods.com.

 

The 18-hole match was laced with on-course challenges for charitable funds.

"I take my hat off to Tom and Peyton," said Woods as quoted by BBC. "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.

All golf has been suspended since March 12 - first round of The Players' Championship - as a precautionary measure against the spread of coronavirus.

The PGA Tour plans to resume its season on June 11 amid the COVID-19 pandemic which has so far claimed more than 3.4 lakh lives across the globe.
