Tiger Woods withdrew from his Hero World Challenge due to plantar fasciitis Monday, much to the dismay of fans who were excited to watch the 15-time major champion return to competitive golf.

But the news wasn't all bad. Shortly after he announced his WD, he gave golf fans something to look forward to in 2024 by announcing Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas would be joining he and Rory McIlroy in their new tech-infused league, TGL.

TGL will be comprised of six teams of three PGA Tour players competing in 15 regular-season matches on Monday nights starting January 2024. The contests will be on virtual courses where fans can watch every shot live on primetime television.

"TGL is the next evolution within professional golf, and I am committed to helping lead it into the future," Woods previously said. "Embracing technology to create this unique environment gives us the ability to move our sport into primetime on a consistent basis alongside so many of sports' biggest events."
