- Fenway Sports Group, managed by John Henry and Tom Werner, has joined Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's primetime golf league, TGL.
- The venture promises a technology-integrated version of golf, targeting a new, younger demographic.
- FSG's entry follows the announcement of a Los Angeles-based team owned by Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
The arena of golf ownership just gained another player hailing from the world of sports. Fenway Sports Group, under the guardianship of John Henry and Tom Werner, is the latest addition to the roaster of TGL, a primetime golf league initiated by golf legends Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
Henry and Werner expressed their exhilaration about the venture, stating it as a new chapter of technology-integrated golf that promises a thrilling spectacle for New England sports enthusiasts. Through this platform, the audience is set to witness world-class PGA Tour players redefine golfing in the current era.
The portfolio of Fenway Sports Group boasts ownership of several prestigious sports entities such as the Boston Red Sox, the Liverpool Football Club, and the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. Its team marks the second disclosure by TGL following the announcement of a Los Angeles-based team owned by prominent figures including Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and tennis icons Serena and Venus Williams.
Mike McCarley, co-founder of TMRW Sports which supervises TGL, acknowledged the strategic position of the FSG team, stating that their contribution will enhance golf's fan base, a fundamental aspect of the Boston's TGL team's mission.
The birth of TGL is a significant development in the affluent landscape of professional golf, founded at a time when the PGA Tour and the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf league were in a legal tussle. The formation of a new company following the merger of PGA Tour and LIV marks an interesting twist. Notably, both Woods and McIlroy were vocal critics of the LIV league. The objective of TGL now stands as captivating a new, tech-savvy generation by offering an innovative blend of physical and virtual golf through primetime showdowns.
