Super League Golf, previously known as the Premier Golf League, has drawn up plans for five attractive events in 2022.
Golf.com reports each of the events would feature 16 players grouped into four 4-man teams drafted by a player serving as team captain.
The teams would consist of players from the top reaches of the world rankings, some of whom stand to receive upward of $20 million just for taking part, the article states.
“The league has extended invites to an A-list roster that includes the world’s top-two ranked players in Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas; four-time major winner Brooks Koepka; three-time major winner Jordan Spieth; and 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama,” Golf.com reports.
Johnson reportedly already agreed to captain one of the teams, a source told Golf.com, but Johnson’s agent dismissed the assertion.
“Absolutely no truth whatsoever,” David Winkle, Johnson’s agent, said in a text, per Golf.com. “Like most other top players, [Johnson] has listened to their vision, but that is all.”
