Colin Morikawa (USA) and Adam Scott (Australia) have decided to join ‘TGL’, a screen golf league scheduled to launch in January 2024. Sports Illustrated reported this through an interview with the two players on the 25th (Korean time).
TGL is a new concept screen golf league scheduled to be introduced early next year by the collaboration of ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (USA) and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland). Woods and McIlroy decided to create TGL to compete against the LIV Golf Invitational Series (LIV Golf), which was launched with the support of the Saudi Arabian Sovereignty Fund (PIF). As Morikawa and Scott decided to join the team, TGL succeeded in recruiting another big name, following Jon Lam (Spain) and Justin Thomas (USA), who had already decided to join.
TGL, where 6 teams of 3 PGA tour players compete in screen golf, is scheduled to hold 15 tournaments every Monday. The top 18 players will compete on Mondays when the competition is not held and share a huge amount of prize money. There is also a prospect that even in LIV Golf’s ‘money bomb’, it will serve as a window for financial compensation for top players who remain on the PGA Tour.
Scott, who was once rumored to be transferring to LIV Golf, recently announced his intention to stay and decided to join TGL, emerging as a new ‘PGA Tour Keeper’. Scott has won 14 wins on the PGA Tour, including the 2013 Masters, and Morikawa, who won two major tournaments such as the PGA Championship and the Open, has a total of 5 wins. 온라인바카라
