The Premier Golf League approaches Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods listened to the Premier Golf League (PGL) talk about a project to set up a professional golf tournament system that competes with the PGA Tour.

According to the earliest launch plan in 2022, PGL is a worldwide tournament system, with 48 star golfers divided into 12 teams, competing against each other through 54 holes each. The total initial prize fund of the system is 240 million USD, with a schedule of 18 stages, including 10 stages in the US. This is a product of World Golf Group based in the United Kingdom developed by the unit under Team Golf Concept.

The goal of PGL is to create more events to bring together the best brothers. In the old days, big names gathered only five times a year at four major and The Players Championship. We wanted more opportunities. Then, the WGC tournaments were born, helping the big names meet more at the peak events. So the arena is the evolution of nature. Whether or not it will come sooner or later.

PGL is considered a potential competitor of PGA Tour. But to do that, the new project needs to convince contemporary big stars, with the top priority being the owners of 15 major, to join.

The birth of PGL was revealed when the Farmers Insurance Open took place from 23-26 / 1. Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson expressed openness to new ideas, but declined to comment because not enough information. At the end of January, the five-time grand champion of Saudi International, was spotted with the top team of Team Golf Concept in Pro-Am. Later, Mickelson said it was a day filled with interesting information.

Meanwhile, the PGA Tour showed a fierce attitude towards the idea of ​​organizing PGL. Special envoy Jay Monahan sent a memorandum to the golfers, reiterated the terms of the binding, and warned not to “catch two-handed fish”. Monahan confirmed PGL is financially supported from Saudi Arabia for the purpose of competing and creating a direct conflict with the PGA Tour. Special envoy Keith Pelley of the European Tour made a similar move to his counterpart at the PGA Tour.
