Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson could play annual match with celebrity partners

  Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson could play annual match with celebrity partners You could come up with a long list of reasons for why “The Match” was such a massive success on Sunday, and a lot of that has to do with all that is going on in the world. Still, having Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson grab a celebrity partner and square off against one another is something that would always draw viewers, which is why it could become an annual event. © Handout Photo-USA TODAY Sports Golf stars Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson envision an annual occurrence of The Match with different celebrities. With an average of 5.

Give Justin Thomas credit for knowing how to have a laugh during unique circumstances.

On Thursday, the PGA Tour resumed its season halted by the coronavirus pandemic in March with the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Fans are not allowed on the course because of the virus outbreak, but that didn't prevent Thomas from thanking would-be admirers after birdie putts, long drives and solid approaches toward the pin:

According to Agence France-Presse (h/t Yahoo Sports), Thomas spoke with reporters earlier this week about the state of the Tour and the world during an unprecedented year. 

"I would say 2020 is beyond a bizarre year so far, and especially in the world of sports it's just going to be different," he said. 

Don't feel too bad for Thomas and others on the Tour as they won't have to wait long before they can wave to actual spectators on a course. Last week, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced that fans will be welcomed to the Jack Nicklaus Memorial Tournament held at Muirfield Village Golf Club in mid-July.

NHL will announce hub cities for 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs June 22

  NHL will announce hub cities for 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs June 22 Ever since the NHL began the process of creating an expanded playoff format for this year, the question of where these tournaments will take place has been a hot topic but the league made it clear they will announce the hub cities for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs on June 22. He also adds that MGM Resorts is preparing as if Las Vegas will be one of the two choices. This would align with a rumor that Las Vegas and Los Angeles were the favorites to be selected as hub cities, likely with the Golden Knights and their Western Conference competitors going to L.A. as to avoid a hometown bias and the Eastern Conference moving in in Vegas.

Until then, keep waving, Justin. Those of us watching via television see you, and we're politely clapping from our couches.

Report: ‘Less optimism’ fans can attend NFL games this season .
If fans aren’t allowed to NFL games this season, the fallout would be significant for the league. While teams could use the space for local advertising and television deals would help account for a majority of the revenue, there would still be a massive economic fallout. NFL teams have already been watching their spending this summer due to fears of a looming revenue hit. However, even those early cost savings have likely been dependent on projections where stadium revenue is only slightly impacted.If fans aren’t allowed in the stadium for the entire 2020 season, the NFL will lose billions.
