Rickie Fowler CONFIRMED to join new golf league in 2024!

Rickie Fowler has been confirmed as the latest PGA Tour star to join Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's new TGL (tech-infused golf league).

The news was officially confirmed via the TGL player list on its official website

TGL will run in partnership with the PGA Tour and will launch in 2024. It has been designed to engage with a new TV audience. 

Fowler, 34, is set to become the 12th player to commit to the new golf league, which is scheduled to tee off on Monday nights next year. 

Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Xander Schauffele, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Justin Rose, Billy Horschel and Max Homa have also confirmed their participation in the new league. 

Fowler is a five-time winner on the PGA Tour but has yet to taste victory since the WM Phoenix Open in 2019. 

The popular American has made a mini resurgence of late with six top-20 finishes in his last 10 starts, including a tie for second at the ZOZO Championship in October 2022. 

As a result of his recent performances, Fowler, who once ranked fourth in the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR), now finds himself in 59th place.

He was ranked outside the top 100 at the end of 2022. 

With the latest announcement of Fowler to its ranks, TGL has now snapped up 12 of its 18 players who will all compete in six three-man teams of PGA Tour players. 

The format will be match play, and they will play on a virtual golf course that will comprise of short-game chipping and putting challenges. 

There will be 15 matches in total in 2024, and each match will last two hours. There will also be semi-finals and a final to crown the victorious three-man team at the end of the season.
