For The Love Of Golf
For the love of a 1.7 inch ball and a 4.25 inch cup
For the love of the shanks, hooks, slices and thins
Without them the sand save, the split fairway and the chip-in just wouldn’t feel so sweet
For the love of the halved hole, the halfway house and the “You can pick that up”
For the love of Prestwick, Torrey and Pebble
That mere mortals can try where legends have triumphed
For the love of Tiger’s red shirt, Augusta’s green jacket and Samuel’s Ryder Cup
The Battle of Brookline. The War on the Shore. The Miracle of Medinah
The game for individuals played as a team
All contest. No cut
Just the thought of it makes the heart beat faster
And just the thought of it inspired our idea…
To create a league
The world’s best in 12 teams
With a 13th chosen by the fans each week
Shot gun starts. And shout-at-the-TV finishes
Imagine the rivalry. Imagine the revelry
And yes, we hit a few into the trees
But as fans we chose a different path
That’s why we’ve made our format more inclusive. More relevant. More rewarding.
And why we plan to gift half of the league to the golfing community, including fans
It’s time for golf to take a new course
For the players. For the fans. For its very future
And we are building it
The Premier Golf League. For the Love of Golf

WHY WE’RE DOING THIS
We love golf. And, as fans first and foremost, we believe the professional game can be better. Better for the best players. Better for the fans. Better for the sponsors, media owners and broadcasters. Better for the game itself and of course, its community.
So, we set about changing it. For the better.
Our starting point was simple – what we believe fans really want to see:
- The best playing the best week-in-week-out.
- Shotgun starts. No cut. 3 days not 4. Wall to wall action and a guarantee to see your favourite players play.
- Traditional ‘every player for themselves’ stroke play combined with a team dynamic. The best of both worlds where every shot counts. Not just to the individual players, but to the teams and, of course, the fans. Culminating in an end of season match play finale, the Play-Offs.
Ultimately, we wanted to give fans a reason to tune in every week and stay tuned in between tournaments. Believing that if we found it more compelling, other fans would too.
That with a blank canvas, free from legacy-driven constraints, we could create a format that more people would enjoy and from which more people would benefit.
