The inaugural TGL organised by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy has been postponed until 2025 following the collapse of the Dome venue that was hosting the new venture.
Woods and McIlroy created the TGL company and the new virtual league and it was set to debut in January 2024 with a number of PGA Tour stars signing up for teams.
The likes of Justin Thomas, Tommy Fleetwood, Collin Morikawa, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Xander Schauffele, Matt Fitzpatrick, Max Homa, Adam Scott and Tyrrell Hatton had all committed to play in the TGL.
However, they will now have to wait until 2025 to take part in the TGL venture following the postponement for 12 months.
Organisers to the decision a week after a power failure prompted the dome venue to deflate and no time to get things set up before the planned start of the 2024 TGL.
TGL Postponed Reaction
Tiger Woods said in a statement: “I’ve been a believer in TGL, and as the momentum has built this past year, I’m even more excited about what this can become for fans of the game all around the world.
“Although the events of last week will force us to make adjustments to our timelines, I’m fully confident that this concept will be brought to life by our great committed players.”
Co-founder Rory McIlroy added: “The postponement brings mixed feelings of disappointment and excitement. Above all, we are happy that no one was injured.
“We are looking forward to the launch of TGL. Given the circumstances, while the delay is disappointing, the postponement will allow us to regroup, refocus and return stronger.”
