The PGA Tour is returning to the nation’s capital during the Fourth of July, backed by the biggest name in golf. The Tiger Woods Foundation will be the host organization of the new PGA Tour event in the Washington, D.C., area. Woods’ foundation will be the primary beneficiary of charitable proceeds.
It was not certain that Woods will play in the Washington tournament this year because his wife is expecting their first child in early July. But it is likely the world’s No. 1 player will be a regular in Washington, the first that his foundation has organized.
Also to be announced is a title sponsor and where the tournament will be played from July 5-8. Woods and PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem are to provide more details March 7 at a press conference in Washington.
What course the tournament will be played on is a big detail and unknown. TPC at Avenel, the old host to the PGA Tour stop in DC, is being renovated and is currently unavailable.
I’m betting Tiger doesn’t play because of Elin’s pregnancy.
