Two-time major championship winner Justin Thomas is joining Atlanta Drive GC, one of the six teams in TGL presented by SoFi, the tech-infused golf league being developed by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, the franchise announced Tuesday.

Thomas, a 15-time winner on the PGA Tour, is the first player to be assigned to one of the six teams in TGL, which is scheduled to begin play Jan. 9 at SoFi Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Three other players will be assigned to Atlanta’s roster later, according to the news release. Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank added Atlanta Drive GC to his portfolio of sports franchises in August.

“Atlanta and the state of Georgia have been the home to some of the biggest sporting events in the country, and I’m excited to represent fans there as part of TGL and Atlanta Drive GC,” Thomas said in a statement. “To be aligned with an owner like Arthur Blank and his incredible variety of businesses as they expand their golf portfolio feels like a great fit for me.

“I promise our team will compete hard to win championships and have a lot of fun along the way. We will represent Atlanta in the best way possible while helping grow the game everywhere through this unique TGL format.”

Four-man rosters for Boston Common Golf, Los Angeles Golf Club, TGL New York and TGL San Francisco will be released soon as well. TMRW Sports, which developed TGL, hasn’t yet announced the ownership group for its sixth franchise.
