It’s become a family affair! Well, sorta…
Earlier this summer, Serena and Venus Williams announced that they had become partners, along with Serena’s two children, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. and Adira, and her husband, Alexis Ohanian in The Los Angeles Golf Club in a new tech-inspired golf league, TGL. The new league was started by Tiger Woods’ TMRW Sports and the PGA Tour. Now, another family has joined the team, the Antetokounmpo Brothers.
According to an Instagram post by the “Greek Freak”, Milwaukee Bucks superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and his brothers, Thanasis, Kostas, and Alex are now investors in The Los Angeles Golf Club.

The Los Angeles Golf Club will compete in TGL’s first season in January 2024. According to the league’s website, the first season kicks off at the top of the new year with a 15-match regular season, followed by semifinals and finals matches.
The Woods-founded golf league utilizes technology and live action for its games and will consist of six teams competing in a two-hour team golf competition. Three PGA TOUR players will make up the composition of each team.
There are already three teams participating in the new league. The aforementioned Los Angeles Golf Club, as well as a team from Boston that is owned by the Fenway Sports Group and an Atlanta team that is owned by Arthur Blank.
The games will take place in a purpose-built venue in Palm Beach, FL. It will combine a data-rich virtual course with a state-of-the-art short game complex.
Woods will be among the many professional players participating in the league when it starts next year.
