Extensive damage at a Florida dome place is possibly a huge blow to the Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy-backed tech-infused golf league 2 months out of its launch.
Photos appeared previously today revealing that the air-supported SoFi Center dome, situated in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, had actually collapsed due to a power blackout.
“We are still assessing the damage and determining the impact on our timelines,” the league, TGL, informed CNBC.
The indoor golf league, which counts the PGA Tour as a partner, is slated to introduce onJan 9, including about 2 lots trip golf players. ESPN and ESPN+ are set to reveal the matches.
The place was customized constructed for the league.
The league resolved the collapse previously today. “An overnight failure to the temporary power system used during the construction phase caused partial deflation and limited damage to the air-supported dome section of the site,” it stated. “The dome section has been further deflated by our crew and will remain down while they work to remedy the situation.”
The roofing system collapse is yet another headache for the nascent league. Earlier this month, Jon Rahm, the 2023 Masters winner, suddenly took out of TGL.
“While I still think it’s a great opportunity, right now it would require a level of commitment that I can’t offer,” Rahm stated in a post on X, previously called Twitter.
The TGL advancements likewise come as the PGA Tour pursues a questionable service collaboration with Saudi- moneyed competing LIV Golf.
