Tiger Woods to be dual player and owner for his TGL team, Jupiter Links Golf Club

The ownership group for the sixth and final team in the new tech-infused golf league led by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy features none other than the 15-time major winner.

Woods’ TGR Ventures and David Blizter are the owners of Jupiter Links Golf Club, which will compete against Atlanta Drive GC, Boston Common Golf, Los Angeles Golf Club, TGL New York and TGL San Francisco.

“Having the opportunity to not only compete, but also own a team to represent Jupiter is an exciting next chapter for me,” said Woods via a press release. “I expect Jupiter Links GC to showcase the golf culture of my hometown as we compete against the best players in the world.”

Blitzer founded Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment with Josh Harris and is co-chairman and managing partner of a portfolio that includes the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA), New Jersey Devils (NHL) and Joe Gibbs Racing. Blitzer also is a co-owner of the Cleveland Guardians (MLB) and Washington Commanders (NFL), a partner of Crystal Palace Football Club (English Premier League) and owns stakes in various soccer clubs around the world.

Six teams of four PGA Tour players will compete in 15 regular season matches, starting Jan. 9, 2024, followed by semifinals and finals matches all at a high-tech short-game complex that was purpose-built on the campus of Palm Beach State College in Florida.

The two competing teams will name their three players ahead of each match, and all six will be mic’d up during the competition. While some teams have already been announced, full team rosters, names, brands and front-office staff will all be announced later this year.
