Donald Trump says that the return of sport is good for the country’s “psyche”

Teamwork TaylorMade Driving Relief has been contested by four of the best players in the sport Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson who defeat Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff at the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

The competition raised over $ 5 million for coronavirus charities and also marked the return of live golf on television.

No spectator was allowed to watch the game and the players completed the course without caddy.

Trump, a lifelong golf enthusiast, joined NBC’s coverage to say he hoped the sport would return to normal as soon as possible.

The United States currently has 1,486,742 confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 89,564 deaths, according to the last digits.

“We want to resume sport, we miss sport, we need sport in terms of our country’s psyche,” he said.

“We really want to see him go back to normal. So when you have all those thousands, tens of thousands of people who go to your majors and go to golf tournaments, we want them to have the same experience.

“We don’t want them to wear masks and, you know, do what we’ve done in the past few months.”

McIlroy’s criticisms

World number one McIlroy has already played golf with Trump, but last week he said he would decline a future invitation after the way the President tried to “politicize” the pandemic.

“He’s trying to politicize it and make it a campaign rally, saying that (the United States) run the most tests in the world as if it were a competition,” he told McKellar golf podcast.

“It’s not really the way a leader should act and there is a little diplomacy that you have to show, and I don’t think it really showed it, especially in these times.”

Trump did not respond directly to Northern Irish, but said he liked to meet a number of professional golfers.

“Many of them are very political. Some really like my politics and some don’t. Those I can’t see aren’t that many,” he said.

‘The match’

The recent event precedes another charity golf game this Sunday when Tiger Woods and Payton Manning face Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady in what is nicknamed “The Match: Champions for Charity”.

The event is jointly organized by PGA Tour and WarnerMedia (CNN’s parent company) and will be a revenge of the television clash in 2018 between Woods and Mickelson.
