Rory McIlroy-Dustin Johnson duo hold big edge in victories

McIlroy and Johnson have combined for 38 PGA Tour titles, dwarfing the 6 won by Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff, which oddsmakers factor into their choice to win the coronavirus-relief match set for May 17

38-6: Number of combined PGA Tour victories for the Rory McIlroy-Dustin Johnson team compared with the Rickie Fowler-Matthew Wolff duo. The players will compete in TaylorMade Driving Relief, a $3 million skins game announced Monday by organizers to benefit coronavirus relief, on May 17 at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Fla. The McIlroy-Johnson team was listed as betting favorites, according to BetOnline. McIlroy, who turned 30 on Monday, is No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has won 18 times on the PGA Tour, including four major championships. Johnson, 35, is a 20-time Tour winner, including one major title, and stands No. 5 in the world. Fowler, 31, has won five times on the Tour and is No. 27 in the world. Wolff, 21, has won once and ranks 110th. All four won during the 2019 calendar year. The match likely will serve as a preliminary of sorts for the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson rematch, another exhibition pegged for coronavirus relief, with the site and date yet to be disclosed.
