In a stunning turn of events, the TGL golf league featuring Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy is postponing its debut by one year. The reason for this delay is due to damage to the dome portion of the arena at Palm Beach State College, which cannot be repaired in time for the planned January 9th debut. Instead of rushing to have a partial schedule next year, owners and key partners have decided to wait until 2025 to ensure a successful launch.
