The event would be held without spectators in Florida and would air live on TV with the proceeds going to help battle the COVID-19 pandemic, American broadcaster ESPN reported. Turner Sports said one possible date is Memorial Day weekend May 23-25.

“There was talks about doing it all along anyway,” Manning told a Denver radio station yesterday. “And now, to have a chance to have a major fundraising event for COVID-19 relief, almost like a telethon if you will ... if that can take place, I’m all in for that.”

The Action Network reported that it is likely that Woods and Manning will compete against Mickelson and Brady.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently expressed support of the event featuring golf superstars and football icons.

“I’d like to see Woods and Mickelson do the golf, or whatever, because that’s social distance,” DeSantis said last week.

“You wouldn’t have a gallery there. You wouldn’t have crowds. But to put that on TV, I think people have been starved for content.”

The PGA Tour said it hasn’t officially endorsed the event but is evaluating health and safety concerns.

One location said to be considered is Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, located just north of Woods’ home in Jupiter.
