TGL is a golf league that will use technological innovation and a shorter format to appeal to a large audience.
The likes of Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas have committed to competing in the league, as well as Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who jointly launched TMRW Sports alongside former NBC Sports executive Mike McCarley.
“It’s an innovative concept that combines technology, data and a competitive team format in primetime on Mondays,” Andrew B. Cohen told Sportico.
“Given the way golf is played now, both in simulators and on the course, I think it’s going to combine all those elements.”
The league is expected to announce the owners of two more franchises before play commences in January 2024.
