TGL is excited to bring short-form elite golf to primetime starting in early 2025. And part of that package is the presence of the world’s best golfers, including two-time major champion Collin Morikawa.

The California native won both the 2020 PGA Championship and the 2021 Open Championship at the first time of asking. He’s got five PGA TOUR wins to his name now, plus one international victory at the DP World Tour Championship.

From stroke play to match play to team golf, he’s a dominant force on the course, dating back to his college days at the University of California. Morikawa was part of U.S. winning teams at the 2022 Presidents Cup and 2021 Ryder Cup, and emerged a winner as part of the U.S. squads for the 2017 and 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup and the 2017 Walker Cup. Put Morikawa on your team and you’ll be racking up wins.

“During my amateur and collegiate golf career, I loved team play and the added energy it brought to my game – especially in match play. That has only been elevated with the opportunities I have had to represent the U.S. in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, and I am looking forward to being a part of a TGL team next year as well,” said Morikawa.

“Beyond that, I think the design of TGL to provide sports fans the world’s best in a weekly, primetime golf competition, from start-to-end in only two hours, will appeal to a broader spectrum of casual golf fans and introduce our sport to younger fans.”

Morikawa is one of 12 PGA TOUR stars confirmed for the first season of TGL, which begins a 15-week regular season in early 2025. There will be six teams of three golfers competing to be named the first ever TGL Champions.

So far, two teams have been announced: Los Angeles Golf Club and TGL Boston. Tennis superstar Serena Williams, her husband and tech entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian, Serena’s sister Venus, and Serena and Alexis’ daughter, Olympia, are the co-owners of Los Angeles Golf Club, while Fenway Sports Group is leading the Boston team.

Team rosters for LAGC, Boston and the other remaining four teams will be confirmed later this year.
