TGL

The TMRW Golf League (TGL) spearheaded by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy announced Tuesday the rules, regulations and format for league play set to begin Jan. 9, 2024. The 15-match regular season will set the stage for the postseason where a best-of-three championship awaits the top two teams. 

Ahead of each three-on-three match, the two teams of four will announce which of their players are participating. All players will be mic'd up.

TGL match format, scoring

  • 15 holes per match
  • Three of four golfers from each team play
  • Nine holes of Triples: Alternate shot (three-on-three)
  • Six holes of Singles: Head-to-head (one-on-one for two holes each)
  • 1 point per hole won | 0 points if hole tied
  • Overtime: Closest-to-the-pin until one team hits two shots closer than the other

A team will earn 2 points for a victory in either regulation or overtime. An overtime loss will earn a team 1 point, while a regulation defeat will see the squad come away from the match empty handed.

TGL playoffs

  • Four of six teams qualify
  • Single-elimination semifinals matches
  • Two teams left standing play in best-of-three Championship Series

All TGL matches will be held at the newly-built SoFi Center on the campus of Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The course within the arena covers the surface of roughly a football field, and it will allow players to hit full shots from real grass tee boxes, fairway, rough and sand into a simulator screen 20 times the standard size.

For shots inside 50 yards, competitors will transition from the simulator to the "Green Zone," a complex spanning more than four basketball courts that features a large, adaptable putting surface that can change the green's slope depending on the hole being played.
