Rules of the 4-ball skins game
There are two teams: Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy vs. Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff.
It’s best-ball skins, meaning the best score on an individual hole will win it for your team. (If three other golfers par and Dustin Johnson birdies, DJ + Rory would win the hole.)
Each hole has a certain amount of cash tied to it: The first six holes will be worth $50,000 each. Holes 7-16 will be worth $100,000 each. Finally, the 17th hole will be worth $200,000 and the 18th hole worth $500,000.
BetMGM has Rory and DJ as favorites at -223, but there are all sorts of fun prop bets you can get in on if you are into such things.
On Sunday, from Seminole Golf Club (Juno Beach, Fla.), TaylorMade Driving Relief will feature 2019 FedExCup champion and World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and with 20-time PGA TOUR winner Dustin Johnson, teaming up against two Oklahoma State University Alums in PGA TOUR
superstar Rickie Fowler and 2019 first-time TOUR winner and 2019 NCAA National Champion Matthew Wolff. Additionally, Farmers Insurance’s $1 million dollar pledge will back birdies and eagle pool to benefit Off Their Plate, a charitable organization helping COVID healthcare workers and impacted frontline shift employees.
The skins game, which means each hole will have its own prize money attached, is worth upwards of $4 million that will go toward COVID-19 relief efforts:
Additional bonus money will be awarded for low scores, with players earning an extra $25,000 per birdie, $50,000 per eagle, and $150,000 per hole-in-one or double eagle,” Golf Channel’s Will Gray added. “All putts for birdies or better must be holed and won’t subject to concession, even if the putt doesn’t affect the team score.”
The PGA Tour explained COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed, including social distancing and the removal of all rakes from the course.
