However, McIlroy told the McKellar Golf Podcast he has no plans to hit the links with Trump again during an interview hitting out at the President's approach to the pandemic.

Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy paired up against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff for a charity skins match in the first live US golf broadcast since the PGA Tour shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

No fans or media were allowed for the Skins match at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

Next is an exhibition match on May 24 at Medalist, where Tiger Woods will team up with National Football League great Peyton Manning to face Phil Mickelson and six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady in Champions for Charity - which will raise $10 ($A15.6m) for COVID-19 relief efforts. "We don't want them to be having to wear masks". It made them look a bit like the rest of us who may have played this weekend in the welcoming warm New York Metro-area weather ... minus the combined $155 million in career PGA Tour earnings the four have won.

According to BetOnline, McIlroy and Johnson are 1/2 favorites to win the most money during the event, while Fowler and Wolff are 17/10 outsiders.

The president stayed on the line for about 10 minutes.

That bravado was eventually tempered, however, as Fowler's seven birdies put pressure on the world number one and Johnson, the heavily favoured pair who boast five majors titles between them. There will be additional bonus money awarded with $25,000 being paid for a birdie, $50,000 for an eagle and $150,000 for a hole-in-one or albatross. If scores are tied after the 18th hole, the four players will return to the par-3 17th and play it from 125 yards out to determine the victor. McIlroy, hitting last, dropped one just inside of Wolff and earned him and Johnson the final $1.1 million.

"It was an awesome day, playing with DJ and Rickie and Matt". We just went through an unprecedented time so it was nice to get back out there.

The raid in the maternity ward of Kabul's Barchi National Hospital left 24 people dead, including newborns, mothers and nurses. When the attack began, shooting and explosions could be heard from the safe room where several had taken refuge, said Bonnot.

The purse for the event is $3 million, all of which will go to the the American Nurses Foundation and CDC Foundation for their efforts in COVID-19 relief.

"I haven't played, really, since this problem that we have started, I haven't been able to play golf for a while, I've been very busy", said Trump who added later.

"Our normal is if you have 100,00 people in an Alabama football game or 110,000 to be specific", Trump said. "It's a wonderful thing to see. We're getting it back".

The NBC broadcast of the unique event featured Mike Tirico anchoring from his home in MI, where he welcomed in Bill Murray on an awkward Skype chat and also spoke to President Donald Trump as the players neared the hallway point in the match. "We need sports in terms of the psyche of our country".

However, Trump added it was "wonderful" to be watching the likes of McIlroy again after "getting a little exhausted watching 10-year-old golf tournaments where you know who won".

Trump said he knows most of the PGA Tour players and has played with many of them.

Not a moment too soon.
