Xander Schauffele, Rickie Fowler, Matt Fitzpatrick and Cameron Young have joined the TGL’s New York Golf Club.

The virtual golf league headed by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will begin its inaugural season next January.

The New York roster additions were announced Tuesday by franchise owner Steve Cohen, owner of baseball’s New York Mets.

“New Yorkers expect and deserve the best, and we couldn’t be more excited to have four of the best players in the world serve as an extension of the thriving golf and sporting culture of our city and region,” Cohen said in a statement. “Rickie, Xander, Matt, and Cameron’s unwavering dedication to the sport, successful track records, and passion for winning is undisputable, and we look forward to watching them compete on golf’s newest stage.”

Schauffele, a seven-time PGA Tour winner who is ranked No. 5 in the world, said it was an “honor” to be part of the tech-infused league’s launch.

“I’ve built my career on a foundation of hard work, grit, and determination, which couldn’t better reflect the people of New York City,” Schauffele said. “It’s a true honor to both grow the game and represent this incredible city.”

The TGL’s first three matches will take place on the first three Tuesdays in January 2025, airing live on ESPN from the SoFi Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The rest of the schedule for the six-team league will be announced later.
