May 13 (Reuters) - World number one Ko Jin-young will take on No.

3 Park Sung-hyun in a skins match on May 24 with the two South Korean golfers set to donate their winnings to charity, Yonhap news reported on Wednesday.

The match at the Sky 72 Golf & Resort in Incheon will have 100 million won ($81,582) up for grabs, though the event will be held without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We're hoping everybody will overcome the coronavirus pandemic as quickly as possible and return to normal life," the players said in a statement. "With that in mind, we'll try to play the best golf we can in support."

In the skins format, values are placed on each hole with a player having to win the hole outright to pocket the money. Tied holes see the money carried over to the next hole.

South Korea's women's golf tour will restart with a major on Thursday when Lakewood Country Club in Yangju hosts the KLPGA Championship. Spectators will not be allowed to attend that event either.
