Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods’ TGL is just some weeks away from debut, and the golf world is so ready to have a ball. Amid the excitement and the tussle, news about the final team of TGL, co-owned by Woods, has made a splash. The legend is planning on batting it out with Jupiter Links Golf Club with his billionaire partner David Blitzer.

With the news coming out, questions about the billionaire giant have been in the cards. Here’s a quick gist of all you need to know about David Blitzer and his co-owned team with Woods, JLGC.

Tiger Woods and sports entrepreneur David Blitzer have joined forces to unveil Jupiter Links Golf Club. Woods is planning on headlining the team’s roster, and even though other players are yet to be announced, Woods’ partner Blitzer has stirred some air.

David Blitzer is a prominent figure in the world of alternative investments, and his current net worth stands at $1.9B. The 54-year-old works as the head of the Tactical Opportunities Group at Blackstone, which is a big player in the alternative investment industry. Blitzer has quite a few teams in his kitty through his investments. For instance, the partnership with Apollo Global’s Joshua Harris in 2011 to acquire the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers. Over the last few years, under Blitzer’s leadership, the company went on to expand its sports empire by adding the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, the English soccer club Crystal Palace, and partial ownership in the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers to their portfolio.

Blitzer’s investments are a real mixed bag. Other than these ventures, the billion-giant also holds a stake in the MLB’s Cleveland Guardians. Not just that, he is a co-owner of MLS’ Real Salt Lake, alongside Qualtrics co-founder Ryan Smith.

Woods’ partnership with Blitzer may be a big benefit for him in the long run. As TGL tries to establish itself in the pro golfing realm, with its star roster and tech-savvy ventures, being associated with GOATS in the sports realm may come as a big plus point. Now, while Woods confirms the roster for JLGC, here’s a quick look at what you can expect from the games in January.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s tech-based TGL are planning on introducing an innovative change to the traditional format of golfing. In addition to a 15-hole match-play format and points-based scoring system, TGL will incorporate a 40-second shot clock executed by a referee. Teams can call timeouts to avoid penalties.

This upcoming season will feature nine-hole alternate shot sessions and six holes of singles, with teams earning points for each hole won. The top four teams advance to the playoffs, with matches airing live on ESPN and ESPN+. The league aims to make golf matches faster-paced, entertaining, and strategic for both players as well as fans.
