On the heels of last week's charity golf event that saw Dustin Johnson, Rory Mcllroy, Rickie Fowler, and Mathew Wolff raise over $5 million dollars for Coronavirus relief efforts, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson took to the golf course Sunday to do the same, and they brought some friends with them. 

Joined by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, the four took to the links at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound and raised $20 million for COVID-19 charities. 

While Tiger and Peyton defeated Mickelson and Brady 1-up to win the match, the real winners were not just the fans at home who got to watch live golf for the second straight week, but also all the charities that will benefit from the money raised.

A year and a half ago, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson came together on a golf course in Las Vegas to play in a one-on-one, made for TV golf event. The event, held the day after Thanksgiving, was watched by millions of people and received a mixed bag of reviews.

The Premier Golf League was supposed to be the golf league of the future. 18 events featuring the best golfers in the world battling it out every week for money that no other golf league, including the PGA Tour, could even fathom to offer.

Sure, there were some logistical issues, including the morality of where the money was coming from (Saudi Arabia) as well as how it would affect things like the majors and the Official World Golf Rankings. For the most part though, it seemed like a dream come true for golf fans.

Well, at least for now, that dream seems to appear to be dead. Several weeks ago Rory Mcllroy, the number 1 golfer in the world, came out and said he would not be a part of the PGL. In addition to not feeling comfortable with where the
