The made-for-television league featuring Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will have to wait until early 2025, following the collapse of the dome that was scheduled to host the league. According to a statement from TGL, this decision was made after reviewing short-term solutions, potential construction timelines, player schedules, and the primetime sports television calendar.
The six-team league was set to begin on Jan. 9, 2024, at the SoFi Center, a custom-built arena on the campus of Palm Beach State College in Florida. However, a partial power failure last Tuesday caused the dome to deflate. Fortunately, there were no injuries and most of the technology was not impacted.
TGL’s statement read that “the green zone” feature will allow a variety of shots to an adjustable putting surface. The simulator is about 20 times larger than a standard simulator.
Tiger Woods expressed his excitement about the league in a statement saying “I’ve been a believer in TGL and as momentum has built this past year, I am even more excited about what this can become for fans of golf worldwide.” Despite the delay caused by last week’s events, Woods stated that he is confident that this concept will be brought to life by committed players like himself and Rory McIlroy.
