- The tech golf league, led by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, announced its first team and ownership group, with the Los Angeles Golf Club as the first of six teams owned by Serena and Venus Williams and Alexis Ohanian. The league has currently secured 12 players, including Woods and McIlroy, with another six expected to be announced.
- The TGL is set to begin in January 2024 in a purpose-built arena in Palm Beach, Florida, with the aim of revolutionizing golf by introducing new technology and innovative formats to attract a younger, tech-savvy audience. It also promises to offer a more lucrative and sustainable career path for professional golfers, with a total prize pool of $240 million and guaranteed contracts for its players.
- The TGL’s partnership with the PGA Tour adds further legitimacy to the league and could potentially lead to more cooperation and collaboration between the two organizations in the future. Woods and McIlroy are hoping to disrupt the status quo and create a new, more exciting vision for the sport.
In a groundbreaking announcement, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have officially unveiled the first team for their new Tech League for Golf News and Tour Information.
The team, which has been named the “Innovators,” will be led by tech entrepreneur and avid golfer, Elon Musk. Joining him on the team will be former NBA superstar and golf enthusiast, Michael Jordan, as well as young golf prodigy, Matthew Wolff.
The Tech League for Golf News and Tour Information was first announced by Woods and McIlroy earlier this year as a way to revolutionize the way golf fans and players access news and information about the sport. The league will focus on using cutting-edge technology to deliver real-time data, analysis, and insights to golf enthusiasts around the world.
The Innovators are the first team to be announced, but Woods and McIlroy have made it clear that they plan to add more teams and players in the coming months. They hope to create a collaborative and competitive environment that will spur innovation and growth in the sport.
Speaking about the announcement, Woods said, “We’re thrilled to have Elon, Michael, and Matthew leading our first team. They bring a unique combination of passion, expertise, and innovation that we believe will help us achieve our goals for the Tech League. We’re looking forward to seeing what they can do.”
McIlroy added, “We believe that the Tech League has the potential to change the way that fans and players engage with golf. Our goal is to create a platform that is accessible, engaging, and informative for everyone. The Innovators are a perfect example of the kind of talent that we want to attract to the league.”
The Tech League for Golf News and Tour Information is set to launch later this year, with more announcements expected in the coming weeks. With Woods and McIlroy at the helm, golf fans can expect big things from this innovative new platform.
