Golf now plans to resume play in Europe in late July starting with the British Masters. In the U.S., the PGA is still planning on resuming June 11th in Texas.
Speaking of Golf, Sunday night at 8:00 pm ET, the Golf Channel will air "Tiger Slam" a documentary on Tiger Wood's remarkable 10-month run from June 2000-April 2001 when he won all four major golf titles. To make it a full golf day, you can also tune in at 3:00 pm for "The Match: Champions for Charity" which will feature Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. The mini-tournament raised $10 million for COVID-19 relief.

The New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft's Super Bowl LI ring was auctioned for $1.025 million. The ring was auctioned as part of the All In Challenge, which is raising money to eliminate food insecurity during the pandemic.
