Justin Thomas' TGL team has been confirmed

Justin Thomas has become the first player to sign for a team franchise in Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's golf league TGL. 

Thomas, 30, has signed with Atlanta Brave GC. Three players will be added to the roster later, the team said in a statement. 

Atlanta Brave is owned by the billionaire businessman Arthur Blank. Blank also owns the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United. 

The 81-year-old snapped up a TGL team in August. It is not known how much his investment into Woods and McIlroy's league was, but he has previously told reporters it was 'significant'. 

In a statement, two-time major champion Thomas said: "Atlanta and the state of Georgia have been the home to some of the biggest sporting events in the country, and I'm excited to represent fans there as part of TGL and Atlanta Drive GC.

"To be aligned with an owner like Arthur Blank and his incredible variety of businesses as they expand their golf portfolio feels like a great fit for me. "I promise our team will compete hard to win championships and have a lot of fun along the way.

"We will represent Atlanta in the best way possible while helping grow the game everywhere through this unique TGL format."

TGL will consist of six teams with four-man rosters. Matches will feature three golfers playing in a match-play format on a virtual golf course. 

Other team names of TGL franchises have also recently been confirmed. They are Boston Common Golf, Los Angeles Golf Club, TGL New York and TGL San Francisco.
