The inaugural season of the TGL golf competition was set to begin in January at a new facility in Florida. However, due to damage to the planned venue, the season was postponed until 2025. The roof of the facility deflated due to a failure of the temporary power system and back-up systems, leading to weather damage.
The delay in the inaugural season put more pressure on her ambitious schedule. The season was originally planned around the calendar of participating PGA Tour players and ESPN’s slate of programming partners. The decision was made to postpone the first event by a year, which caused disappointment.
TMRV Sports CEO Mike McCarley said: “Their unwavering belief in the success of TGL and their alignment with the decision to postpone the inaugural season will allow us to regroup and return with the best possible product at the time we want in the sporting calendar.” Rosalynn Durant, executive vice president of programming and acquisitions at ESPN, also commented: “We’ve believed in them and their vision from the beginning, and that hasn’t changed. The extra time to plan, test and practice will only make it better.”
