TGL Adds Three More Players to Growing Roster Ahead of Debut Season
The Virtual Golf League, also known as TGL, continues to make headlines as it adds three more players to its growing roster. Sahith Theegala, Cam Young, and Keegan Bradley have all signed on with TMRW Sports, the organization behind TGL. This announcement comes just a week after Shane Lowry, Tommy Fleetwood, and Tyrrell Hatton were named as participants in the league.
TGL, which is backed by golf legends Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, recently finalized a multiyear deal with ESPN to air its matches. The league has garnered significant attention since its inception, and the addition of these players only adds to the excitement surrounding its upcoming debut season.
All matches will take place at the state-of-the-art SoFi Center on Palm Beach State College’s campus in Florida. This facility has been specifically built to accommodate TGL and its unique format. With the league’s schedule consisting of 15 two-hour matches held weekly, culminating in the semifinals and finals, viewers can expect thrilling golf action throughout the season.
TGL features six teams, each consisting of four players. However, only three players from each team will compete in each match. With the recent additions, the league now boasts a total of 19 pro golfers committed to play. The lineup includes not only Woods and McIlroy but also Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Xander Schauffele, Max Homa, Rickie Fowler, Tom Kim, and Billy Horschel. More players are expected to be added to the league in the near future.
TMRW Sports, a firm founded by Woods, McIlroy, and media executive Mike McCarley, is the driving force behind TGL. The league has already attracted big-name ownership, with teams representing Los Angeles, Boston, Atlanta, and New York. The Los Angeles team is co-owned by Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams, and her sister Venus Williams. The Boston squad is owned by Fenway Sports Group, while Atlanta’s franchise is overseen by AMB Sports & Entertainment, run by Arthur Blank. The New York team, the most recent addition to the league, is run by Cohen Private Ventures, the family office of New York Mets owner Steve Cohen.
As TGL gears up for its highly anticipated debut season, golf fans around the world can look forward to a new and exciting chapter in the sport. With its star-studded lineup and innovative format, TGL promises to deliver thrilling golf matches that will captivate audiences both on and off the course.
