Fenway Sports Group has become the second team owner in TGL, the tech-infused golf competition backed by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy that will launch in January.
TGL is slowly rolling out its “original six” founding owners — Serena and Venus Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian were the first announced in connection with Los Angeles Golf Club.
FSG’s team will represent Boston and the New England region. Team members and an official name will be announced soon. The move adds golf to a portfolio that already includes the Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Penguins, Liverpool, and NASCAR’s RFK Racing.
Financial terms for the team purchase were not disclosed, but FSG was an initial investor in TGL parent company TMRW Sports, as were Ohanian and Serena Williams.
Confirmed players for the first season of TGL — a partnership with the PGA Tour — include Woods, McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Xander Schauffele, Max Homa, Billy Horschel, and Rickie Fowler.
While teams are tied to specific geographical locations, the league will operate on Monday nights out of a high-tech facility being constructed on the campus of Palm Beach State College.
TGL could look to place players on teams with affiliations to cities or regions. Homa, Fowler, and Schauffele hail from Southern California, many pro golfers call South Florida their home, and Schauffele and Morikawa live in Las Vegas.
