TGL golf league, co-founded by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, has postponed its debut by one year. The reason behind this is the damage to the dome portion of the arena at Palm Beach State College that can’t be repaired in time for the planned January 9 debut. Instead of rushing to have a partial schedule next year, owners and other key partners think it’s best to wait until 2025 to get it right.
In other sports news, Sergio Dest forced the United States to play a man short following a pair of yellow cards in a dispute with the referee during a Copa America qualifying match against Trinidad and Tobago. Despite losing 2-1, the Americans qualified for next year’s tournament because they won the total-goals series, 4-2. Antonee Robinson scored in the 25th minute and Dest received both yellow cards in the 39th minute. Trinidad got goals from Reon Moore and Alvin Jones, who also scored in their previous victory over the US in 2016 that ended their seven-year streak of World Cup appearances. U.S. captain Tim Ream revealed there were “choice words” for Dest at halftime. “Not too many things I can say here publicly that we said privately,” Ream said. “It’s a complete lack of respect for guys on the bench, on the field.”
The U.S finished the year with 11 wins, four losses and three draws.
