Mike McCalley, CEO of TMRW Sports, a virtual reality golf league that operates TGL, scheduled to launch in January next year, confirmed and announced 11 out of 18 players to play in TGL on the 15th (Korean time).
Rose, Shopley, and Matt Fitzpatrick, last year’s US Open champion, followed six people who had already announced that they would join TGL, including Woods, McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Colin Morikawa (USA), Jon Rahm (Spain), and Adam Scott (Australia). (England), Max Homa, and Billy Horschel (US) were added.
Rose won a gold medal at Rio 2016, and Chopley won a gold medal at Tokyo 2021.
TGL, where 6 teams of 3 PGA tour players compete in screen golf, is scheduled to hold 15 tournaments every Monday.
It is a structure in which the top players play on Mondays when PGA Tour tournaments are not held and share a huge amount of prize money, and it is expected to become a new profitable golf league with cutting-edge IT technology.
In particular, TGL drew attention as it would serve as a window for financial compensation for top players who resisted the temptation of LIV golf and remained on the PGA Tour.
All 11 players who were confirmed to join the TGL had a common point of standing on the side of Woods and McIlroy, clearly stating that they would keep the PGA Tour instead of moving to LIV golf.
“By combining technology and golf, TGL is an innovation that will help the sport evolve and attract more fans,” said Rose. I think it will be fun to compete in the environment and team format.”
