Following the recent partial collapse of the SoFi Dome set to host the Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy driven TGL, it was announced today that the slated starting date has been pushed back to 2025.
Originally planned to begin on January 09 2024, the collapse caused by a power-outage and subsequent failure of the backup systems means that the intended start date is no longer feasible and rather than alter the TV windows, the decision was made to postpone rather than partially delay.

“The postponement brings mixed feelings of disappointment and excitement. Above all, we are happy that no one was injured. We are looking forward to the launch of TGL,” McIlroy said. “Given the circumstances, while the delay is disappointing, the postponement will allow us to regroup, refocus and return stronger.”
“I’ve been a believer in TGL, and as the momentum has built this past year, I’m even more excited about what this can become for fans of the game all around the world,” Woods added. “Although the events of last week will force us to make adjustments to our timelines, I’m fully confident that this concept will be brought to life by our great committed players.”
