The two top golf stars, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, founded a startup together.
This news has caused quite a stir since it came to light on Tuesday. It is not yet clear what concept your young company “TMRW Sports” is actually pursuing.
What we know: In addition to Woods and McIlroy, Mike McCarley is also one of the founding trio of “TRMW Sports”. The former president of NBC’s Golf Channel “Golf Channel” brought up the idea in a statement as follows:
“It’s a company built on the belief that technology and sport can come together and create new experiences for new audiences. And merging sports and technology can really help shape the future of how we engage ourselves and engage in sports – whether it’s through watching, playing, data, the way you want to. “.

So this means: It’s about connecting sport and technology in many ways.
So far, TMRW Sports has only been more specific about its plans for a new technology-based series of golf tournaments called TGL. It’s working, so I brought it on.”golf week“In the experiment, it will likely be a series of stadium events in partnership with the PGA Tour. It appears that the events are not intended to take place on grass and are only about two hours in length. Top golfers will compete on the golf simulator.
Despite the company’s few concrete plans so far, the waiting list for prominent investors from the world of sports is long. In addition to private equity entrepreneurs, the company also supports some big picks from the ranks of US sports franchisees. For example, Arthur Blank (owner of the Atlanta Falcons), David Blitzer (co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils), and John Henry (owner of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool).
But also sports stars from a total of 13 sports have personally reached out to their wallets to financially support Woods, McIlroy and McCarlin in their projects. For example, invest NBA stars Stephen CurryAndre Iguodala Steve Nash and WNBA legend Diana Torassi, veteran tennis star Tony Romo Serena Williams And Andy Murray, Formula 1 Champion Lewis HamiltonAnd footballers Gareth Bale, Josie Altidore, Alex Morgan and NHL star Sidney Crosby to name a few.
