Live golf returns to television on Sunday, and it might not look entirely familiar except for the players.

Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson play against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff. There won't be caddies.

The only rake will be carried by a rules official.

Another rules official will be the only person to handle the flagstick, if necessary.

And the players will be carrying their own bags. McIlroy says this was a better alternative to riding in carts.

He says for golf to be showcased on television, it's a good image for viewers to see pros carrying their own bags.
