“The Match” – Minnesota Edition… Would Be Must-See TV

Golf has been taking over the live sports world since the majority of sports leagues are still on hold. Golf may not be the most exciting sport to watch but at least it’s something, right?

The past two weekends, golf sponsors and professional athletes teamed up to make super teams. Both matches dominated sports talk and Twitter in the U.S. 

On May 17th, we got to see Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson battle it out against Ricky Fowler and Matthew Wolff, for charity. Then on May 24th, NFL and PGA legends Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods battled it out for bragging rights. 

This got a few Minnesotans thinking, what would it look like if Minnesota had its own version of “The Match”? It would be a fun filled charity event that could take quite the competitive (or non-competitive) turn. 

What would the matchups look like? Who would win? Which player makes the best shot? Who would suck? That’s what would make this event a blast to watch for Minnesota sports fanatics. 

Players would alternate shots, be mic’d up and help raise money in a time where a lot of people are in need of help. These teams would not only be entertaining to watch but also be the punchline to many online jokes.

This matchup would, by far, be the most competitive of the groups. All of the guys in this pairing are extremely good at golf… The next group, however, might not be.


How big of a divot would Hrbek make on the golf course? I don’t know but I’d be there to see it.

Young guns or the retired ringers? Ron Johnson is ready to set up a golf match!

Now this would be the funniest, and possibly, the most painful group to watch play golf. We’re all here for a Josh Duhamel and Lizzo paired up!

No doubt this event could raise a lot of money for charity. It would also dominate on all social media platforms across Minnesota.
