Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's golf league TGL has bagged another huge investor.
New York Mets owner Steve Cohen has made a deal with the golfers to purchase the New York franchise.
TGL is a new primetime, high-tech golf league that will tee off next January. The league will operate in partnership with the PGA Tour.
Team matches will be played from a custom-built venue on Monday evenings.
The idea of TGL is to have six teams of three PGA Tour players competing at a 'tech-infused venue' with some sort of golf simulator.
It will be aired in front of a live studio audience and broadcast on TV.
A media deal is yet to be announced but CNBC have reported one is expected to be finalised soon.
Cohen's investment means there are now four TGL franchises that have been purchased.
A number of A-list celebs have already invested in TGL. They include:
- Serena Williams
- Stephen Curry
- Lewis Hamilton
- Alex Morgan
- Andy Murray
- Chris Paul
- Tony Romo
- Justin Timberlake
TGL has been in the works for quite a while but things ramped up behind the scenes as the rival LIV Golf League emerged in 2022.
So far, a number of PGA Tour stars have committed their services.
The aforementioned Rahm recently claimed TGL was 'different to what I expected'.
