The world of sports is no stranger to surprising alliances and collaborations. Athletes from different sports often come together to support a common cause or venture into new territory. In a recent turn of events, USWNT superstar Alex Morgan has joined hands with tennis champion Serena Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, in entering what was once deemed as Tiger Woods’ territory.
It all began with an exciting announcement made by golf legend Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. The two icons revealed their plans to launch a new golf league called TGL, set to debut in January 2024. As the news broke, speculation started to swirl about the potential teams and owners involved in this groundbreaking venture.
One of the teams that emerged as a frontrunner in the league is the Los Angeles Golf Club (LAGC). With an impressive roster of investors, LAGC quickly became the talk of the town. Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, took the lead as the primary investor. He was joined by his wife Serena Williams and her sister Venus Williams, further solidifying the team’s credibility.
The excitement around LAGC has now reached new heights as USWNT star Alex Morgan is also joining in on the project. Making the announcement on her official X account, Morgan expressed her enthusiasm for this new chapter in her career. “It’s official, I’m married to the game,” she proudly declared.
The 34-year-old further stated, “I’m thrilled to announce my involvement as an investor with LAGC, the inaugural team of TGL”. Accompanying her announcement are a couple of photos of Morgan donning the team’s official merchandise, exuding confidence and excitement.
The decision of Alex Morgan to join forces with Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian marks a significant moment in the world of sports. It showcases the willingness of athletes to expand their horizons and explore new opportunities outside of their primary sports.
Another significant moment in soccer recently marked the retirement of Alex Morgan’s dynamic pair, Megan Rapinoe. Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe have formed an exceptional partnership for the USWNT for more than a decade. Their final game came against South Africa as it marked Rapinoe’s retirement from the national squad. Before the match, Alex Morgan took to social media to express her heartfelt message to Rapinoe. In just five words, Morgan wrote, “All the feels rn,” reflecting on their shared moments.
Additionally, Morgan shared a collection of photos showcasing her and the talented OL Reign forward. Alongside these pictures, she conveyed her emotions by saying, “14 years of hugs and cellys and trophies and tears together. All the feels for Pinoe’s last USWNT game”.
These posts exemplify the strong bond they developed while representing their nation over time. It is clear that their friendship extends beyond the soccer field, and both athletes have left an indelible mark on the sport.
The collaboration between Alex Morgan, Serena Williams, and Alexis Ohanian in the world of golf is a testament to the ongoing evolution and cross-pollination of sports. It opens up new doors and possibilities for athletes to expand their reach and influence. As fans, we can only eagerly anticipate the debut of TGL in 2024 and see the impact these athletes will make in the golfing world.
