The TaylorMade Driving Relief Golf Tournament


By: Julio Olmo

Similar to a major is how sportsbooks across the country described the immense betting action on the TaylorMade skins game.
The return of live golf at Seminole Golf Club was met with excitement from sports fans yearning for live sports.
The enthusiasm and wagering that the Skins Match brought from rivaled the Masters, U.S. Open and Open Championship from last year.
Easily doubling what a typical PGA Tour event would bring in.
Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson narrowly edging out Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff on a closest-to-the-pin finisher was just what live sports needed to see.
“When you think about it, with only four players in this match, in one single afternoon rather than over four days, this was really impressive,” said Johnny Avello, who was the director of the sportsbook at the Wynn Las Vegas casino before taking over as DraftKings’ Head of Sportsbook in 2018, “It blew away the numbers that we normally do on a weekly basis. Golf is a game that continues to attract people who like to bet, and we continue to expand the offerings.”
The Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning versus Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady match slated for Sunday, May 23rd to be broadcasted on Turner Sports will look to capitalize on that momentum in betting on Golf, and with the match featuring big-time star power from in and outside Golf, the numbers should be equally impressive.
The Star Power is expected to bring twice – maybe three times!, the interest from the TaylorMade match.
“This should be off the charts, I think this will be bigger,” Johnny Avello added, “I’m expecting this to exceed the numbers from this past weekend, which were remarkable”.

“A win for them is a win for all.” – PGATOUR
