Golfers Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have launched a new “high-tech league” – intended to appeal to younger fans – that will begin in 2024.
The league will feature six, three-man teams competing on “a data-rich, virtual course” in a stadium setting.

Each of the 18-hole contests will take just two hours to complete.
The league – called TGL – will be run by TMRW Sports – the technology-focused sports company launched by Woods and McIlroy on Tuesday.

  2. Are there other sports that might be able to copy this approach using this sort of technology?
