With the inaugural season commencing soon, franchise ownerships for teams in the TGL series are up for grabs.  Tennis star Serena Williams, in collaboration with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, bought one of the TGL teams.

New York Mets owner Steve Cohen will buy the fourth team in the Woods-McIlroy-backed golf league. The team will be based in New York, further joining franchises in Los Angeles, Boston, and Atlanta. They are yet to finalize a name for the team.

Many wealthy investors are drawn to the idea of the high-tech golf league. Why? Because the concept is a solution to the otherwise slow play and unfavorable weather conditions on the golf course. Groups of 3 will play against each other on Monday nights as part of TGL. However, the game will happen on life-size simulators.

Many PGA tour pros are expected to be a part of the league. The bridging of the gap between virtual play and field games is an innovative and intriguing concept. Whether or not it is accepted by the golf world remains to be seen.
