Affectionately known as Kiz, the four-time PGA TOUR winner is joining the 24-player roster for the inaugural season of TGL presented by SoFi.
Seven of the current top 10 players in the world are signed up for season one of TGL, and the combined roster has 32 major championships victories, 223 PGA TOUR wins, an additional 119 International Victories and collectively has ranked as the World No. 1 for 886 weeks.
Players will be mic'd up during TGL matches at SoFi Center, located on the campus of Palm Beach State College, and Kisner is excited to bring fans closer to the action.
“I can promise that I’m going to have a lot of fun at TGL events and hope to bring a little trash talk and personality to each match. I love the idea of trying new things in golf and TGL should be a way we can introduce fans of other sports to golf and maybe even create a few new fans along the way,” said Kisner.
All team names, brands, front office staff and assigned players will be unveiled later this year, as will the inaugural schedule and other operational elements of TGL presented by SoFi. Currently four of six team ownership groups have been announced:
- Atlanta Drive GC: led by Arthur M. Blank, AMB Sports and Entertainment (Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United, PGA TOUR Superstores)
- TGL Boston: led by John Henry, Tom Werner, Mike Gordon, and Fenway Sports Group (Boston Red Sox, Liverpool FC, Pittsburgh Penguins, RFK Racing)
- Los Angeles Golf Club: led by Alexis Ohanian (Angel City FC), Seven Seven Six, Serena Williams, and Venus Williams; as well as limited partners the Antetokounmpo brothers, Alex Morgan, Servando Carrasco, and Michelle Wie West
- TGL New York: led by Steven A. Cohen (New York Mets), Cohen Private Ventures
The inaugural season of TGL presented by SoFi will feature 15 regular season matches followed by semifinals and finals matches, on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN+ in the U.S. with the first match airing in prime time in early 2025, on ESPN and ESPN+.
