Tommy Fleetwood makes huge announcement by confirming new team move

Tommy Fleetwood has become the newest member of Los Angeles Golf Club on TGL, it has been confirmed on social media. 

The TGL was supposed to start up this month but the tech-infused league set up by PGA Tour legends Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy has been forced into a 2025 start.

This was a result of the stadium roof recently collapsing at the SoFi Center in Florida. 

But despite the TGL's huge setback, the teams are starting to all come together.

Six teams from six different cities will go head-to-head in a season-long competition at SoFi Center, a first-of-its-kind venue built specifically for golf on the campus of Palm Beach State College.

Woods will be on Jupiter Links, while McIlroy will be on Boston Common

Check out this guide to see how the TGL teams are all shaping up ahead of 2025.

One of the teams that has now got its business done is Los Angeles GC following the signature of seven-time DP World Tour winner Fleetwood.

The team also comprises fellow PGA Tour stars Justin Rose, Collin Morikawa and Sahith Theegala.

Fleetwood told TGL: 

"I am thrilled to join Los Angeles Golf Club and be part of a community that shares my passion for the game. The club's commitment to fostering talent and promoting the sport aligns with my own values, and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead."

The Englishman has enjoyed a solid start to the 2024 season with a victory at the Dubai Invitational in January on the DP World Tour. 

He then finished T14 at the Dubai Desert Classic before heading Stateside to finish T31 in last week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which was shortened to 54 holes due to bad weather.

The TGL season was set to kick off on 9 January 2024. But all that has changed as a result of the TGL's stadium roof collapsing on 14 November 2023. 

It is understood the TGL will definitely start in early 2025. 

When the inaugural 2025 season eventually tees off it will consist of 15 regular season games followed by a semi-final and a final.

As things stand, 22 players have officially signed up to take part in the TGL.

The star-studded roster has a combined 223 PGA Tour wins, 32 major wins and 886 weeks at No.1.

Jon Rahm was initially in the lineup but he pulled out just weeks before confirming he was heading over to the LIV Golf League.
