The new golf league, which was revealed last year following the emergence of LIV Golf, will start in 2024

Morikawa and Scott now join Justin Thomas and the hottest man on the PGA Tour right now in Jon Rahm, who captured his fourth title in his last six starts around the world at The American Express on Sunday, as the four players to join Woods and McIlroy

Thomas and Rahm were confirmed as TGL signings back in November 2022. 

All six players are major champions.

TGL is a creation of TMRW Sports, a company co-founded by Woods, McIlroy and CEO Mike McCarley. McCarley served as NBC Sports' golf and global strategy president from 2011 to 2021.

The new golf league will run in cooperation with the PGA Tour.

Here's what we know about the TGL so far: 

  • Monday Night Golf League
  • 18 players, six teams of three
  • All of the matches will take place in a special arena in Palm Beach
  • Each team will play 5 matches during a 15-week regular season
  • 18-hole team match play, two-hour broadcast

This new concept also intends to give fans a high-energy experience, up close and personal with the players and the shots.

McIlroy said the reason why they have chosen to broadcast on Monday evenings was because it fits better into players' schedules when events are on as Tuesdays and Wednesdays are usually reserved for practice days before tournaments. 

Woods said:

"TGL is the next evolution within professional golf and I am committed to helping lead it into the future.
"As a big sports fan myself, I'm excited about blending golf with technology and team elements common in other sports.
"We all know what it's like to be in a football stadium or a basketball arena where you can watch every play, every minute of action unfold right in front of you."

Woods and McIlroy finished 1-2 in the PGA Tour's Player Impact Program for 2022.
