Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s tech-led golf league has announced major winners Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm as its first recruits.

Rahm and Thomas are the first confirmed stars, apart from Woods and McIlroy themselves, to commit to TGL, which will launch in 2024 in partnership with the PGA Tour.

Both are former world No.1s and have a combined 22 PGA Tour victories. Thomas has two US PGA titles, while Rahm won the 2021 US Open.

TGL, a stadium-focused competition, was announced earlier this year ahead of the Tour Championship as part of sweeping changes to the PGA Tour in what was widely seen as a bid to combat the threat posed by LIV Golf.

It represents a partnership between the tour and TMRW Sports, a company set up by Woods and McIlroy which has attracted investment from high-profile figures in the world of sport, entertainment and finance.

The competition will consist of teams of three golfers going head-to-head in a league on Monday nights. It will be held in purpose-built indoor venues, with shots hit into a cinema-sized screen in front of a live audience.

More details and further big-name signings are expected to be announced closer to the event’s launch.
