The TGL golf competition will involve six teams of four players in team-based events. Originally, the inaugural season of the tech-powered, team-based circuit was supposed to kick off in January at a new facility in Florida. However, due to damage to its planned venue, the inaugural season has been delayed until 2025.
The delay in the inaugural season has caused more pressure on its ambitious schedule. The season was originally planned around participating players’ PGA Tour calendars and broadcast partner ESPN’s programming slate. The decision has been made to delay the first event by a year, causing disappointment among fans and stakeholders alike.
TMRW Sports chief executive Mike McCarley stated, “We are disappointed by this news but remain steadfast in our belief in the success of TGL and our commitment to delivering a top-quality product for our fans.” Rosalyn Durant, executive vice president of programming and acquisitions at ESPN, also commented, “We have believed in them and their vision from the beginning, and that has not changed. We are excited about the opportunity to launch the inaugural season on ESPN next year.”
Despite the setback, TMRW Sports is confident that they can regroup and return with a better product at a better time on the sports calendar. They believe that an additional year will allow them to plan, test, and rehearse their events to perfection.
