Although its website doesn’t bear his name quite yet, Min Woo Lee confirmed Tuesday during a press conference before the start of this week’s Zozo Championship in Japan he’s joining TGL, the upstart, tech-infused league led by Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and their joint venture, TMRW Sports.
“Oh, it’s amazing,” Lee told the media at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club when asked about joining the league. “Look at the roster, it’s crazy. It seems like everyone, and then there’s me. I’m trying to do my best and compete with these guys. These guys, obviously, major champions and best in the world. I guess a bit of my fun personality and hopefully, I can play some good golf there, too. I really like that, like type of format, team event. I’m not sure what team I’ll be on, but yeah, I’ll be really excited.”
Lee is now the 20th player to commit to the new circuit, leaving four spots up for grabs. Each of the six teams will roster four players, however, only three will play in each match allowing teams to give guys days off.
Construction of the TGL’s SoFi Center on the campus of Palm Beach State College in Florida is now underway. The first matches will be played Jan. 9, 2024.
