Tiger's event moving to his old home course

(Continued)

Graeme McDowell is the defending champion. This year’s 18-man field features 14 players from the top 20.

The World Challenge is so important to Woods that last year he contributed about $4 million of his own money to help cover operating costs. Proceeds led to building the first Tiger Woods Learning Center on 14 acres near where Woods grew up in Cypress, Calif., and next to the H.G. “Dad” Miller Golf Course where he spent so much time as a kid.

The tournament was the first visible showcase of Woods’ foundation, and his father Earl, who died in 2006, was a big part of it.

“We’ve been looking for ways to expand our relationship with Tavistock and this is a perfect fit,” said Greg McLaughlin, the president and CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation. “We very proud of the $25 million the World Challenge has raised, and we’ve been evaluating the best path forward to continue this work.”

It was not clear how Tavistock would be presented in the title of the tournament, if at all.

Northwestern Mutual has signed on as the title sponsor for the World Challenge for Dec. 5-8 event at Sherwood; the company is not mentioned with the 2014 event.

Sherwood first became part of the golf landscape as the host of the Shark Shootout, now played in Naples, Fla.
