Larry David might not have time to stop and chat, but during a pandemic, he’s set aside some time to help the loopers at his home golf course.

The creator of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld has teamed up with media mogul Lloyd Braun to start a GoFundMe page for caddies at the iconic Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, and the push appears to be on pace to meet its goal of $150,000.

As of late Sunday morning, donations tallied up to about 80 percent of that goal, with such heavyweights as Tom Brady among those on the list of donors.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a statewide shelter-in-place order on March 19, according to this story, directing all California residents to stay home to help combat further spread of the coronavirus.

Some states have allowed golf courses to stay open, but California has deemed them as non-essential, meaning caddies have lost their source of income.

Similar movements have started at other clubs and courses, including Lakeside Golf and Country Club in Burbank, California, and Southern Highlands Golf Club in Las Vegas.
