TGL Season Postponed until 2025: Arena Damage Forces Delay


Nov 21, 2023

The TGL golf competition, a tech-powered, team-based circuit, was supposed to kick off in January at a new facility in Florida. However, due to damage to its planned venue, the inaugural season has been delayed until 2025. The structure’s roof deflated due to a failure of the temporary power system and backup systems, leading to weather damage.

The delay in the inaugural season has caused more pressure on its ambitious schedule. The season was originally planned around participating players’ PGA Tour calendars and broadcast partner ESPN’s programming slate. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the decision has been made to delay the first event by a year, causing disappointment.

TMRW Sports chief executive Mike McCarley stated that their steadfast belief in the success of TGL and their alignment with the decision to postpone the inaugural season will allow them to regroup and return with the best product possible at their preferred time on the sports calendar. Rosalyn Durant, executive vice president of programming and acquisitions at ESPN also commented that they have believed in them and their vision from the beginning and that has not changed. She added that the additional time to plan, test and rehearse will only make it better and they look forward to launching the inaugural season on ESPN.
