Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's TGL Golf Venture Start Delayed

Florida facility sustains damage causing 1 year delay

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's virtual golf competition has been pushed back one year, to early 2025, after its facility in Florida sustained damage.

TGL, an indoor "high-tech league", was due to start early 2024. However, those plans have been delayed after a power outage caused the collapse of the air-supported dome roof at the SoFi Center in Palm Beach Gardens.
TGL said in a statement have said the following in a statement;
'Overnight on Tuesday, November 14, a failure of the temporary power system and backup systems used during construction caused the dome to deflate, which caused damage to the air-supported dome section of the site. There were no injuries, and most of the technology was not impacted.

Following discussions with key partners, including players, our six team ownership groups, PGA TOUR leadership and our commercial partners, SoFi, ESPN and Palm Beach State College, the decision has been made to postpone the start of the TGL season until early 2025. This decision came after reviewing short-term solutions, potential construction timelines, player schedules, and the primetime sports television calendar.

Despite this new timeline for the venue, we remain excited about the future of TGL and will continue to build excitement between now and the start of the season with our players, fans and teams. We have begun to update plans and timelines and are confident that the extension will only improve our delivery.'

McIlroy said: "The postponement brings mixed feelings of disappointment and excitement.
"Above all, we are happy that no one was injured," he added.
