The Star of TaylorMade Driving Relief game is an amazing Seminole



The Star of TaylorMade Driving Relief game is an amazing Seminole

The most alluring star in the TaylorMade Driving Relief skins game on Sunday for COVID-19 assistance may not be one of the four players who will hit the shot, but the golf course will accept – and reject – the shot.

For golf enthusiasts who have not been fortunate enough to play it or even see it (which accounts for more than 99.9 percent of the population), the host venue on Sunday, the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida, is like a mysterious, closed, unreached woman.

There is a mystery and mystique about Seminole, because it is one of the most exclusive golf courses on the planet and few see it.

Sure, Augusta National is at least as exclusive as Seminole, but we can see Augusta on TV once a year for the Masters. The same is true for many other American golf treasures such as Shinnecock, Winged Foot, Baltusrol in our area – all of which have hosted several major championships over the years, which means they are open for spectators to see, wander and touch.

Sunday’s skin match will compete with world number one Rory McIlroy and former number 1 Dustin Johnson against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in what will be the first PGA Tour broadcast live on television because the Players Championship was canceled after the first round and sports closed down as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Sunday, too, will draw curtains at Seminole and care for golf addicts among us to see the respectable Donald Ross 1929 design near the Atlantic Ocean, just a few miles north of Palm Beach.

“Seminole will be a treat for everyone to watch on TV,” McIlroy said.

“I think we would watch these people play in the parking lot if we had to at this time,” Seth Waugh, CEO of PGA America and a member of Seminole, told The Post. “But of course the draw is almost as big as a player. I also think how you would see it would make it very minimalist. This is like the ‘Blair Witch Project’ golf. This will almost be a home-based film.

“I talked to [NBC producer] Tommy Roy, and he’s a little nervous about his production because there are only six cameras and nothing [broadcast] tower. But I said to him, “Tommy, that will make it cooler. You will feel like you are there. You will see the course as it should.”

“You went to Hazeltine for the Ryder Cup and you didn’t really see the golf course, because you already got all the stands and everything around it. Here [at Seminole], You will get the purity of the place. Seminole will show off on Sunday. ‘

In a closed and understated way, Seminole is packed with star power on its membership list. One of the newest is Tom Brady, who joined as soon as he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Michael Bloomberg is a member. Likewise former PGA Tour stars Ray Floyd and Nick Price, along with Arizona Cardinals recipient Larry Fitzgerald. That was once a normal treading ground for people like the legend of Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer.

Although the 2021 Walker Cup is scheduled to be played at Seminole, famous events that are open to the public are not held there.

The club’s most prestigious event, which is not open to the public, is the annual pro-member tournament which takes place on Monday in the Bay Hill week, and that includes a better field of PGA Tour players than most of the Tour events are drawn. Think of Rory McIlroy (who’s father, Gerry, is a member), Justin Rose (who was a double winner with Waugh), Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, Tommy Fleetwood, Matt Kuchar, Ian Poulter and Fowler.

Pro-members 2019 featured seven of the top nine players in the world ranking. Davis Love III called the event “the first major of the year” based on its star-studded field.

“There is genuine excitement about seeing Seminole,” said Stephen Cox, senior referee for the PGA Tour who will lead Sunday’s match. “This has not been broadcast to viewers around the world before, so this is a new unique opportunity for people around the world to catch a glimpse.”

Just enjoy, golf fans. Having never seen it myself, I knew I would do it.
