He won on Monday, and made it a little dramatic. What, you'd expect it to be anything less? Trailing Camilo Villegas in the skins category, after Villegas made a birdie on 14 worth $180,000, Woods went on to win the next three holes, pulling in $230,000 and five skins for the day. Game over. Tiger won. Tip your waitress ... again.
"Today was incredible, to come here and bring awareness to what Notah is trying to do,'' said Woods, who won five holes to three for Villegas. "It's great to see what he's doing, to put his heart, soul and passion into something like this and bring this many people together to help them understand and educate the public. I'm just so proud of him as a friend. We've been through a lot together."The event was a nice warm-up for Tiger's attempt to win the FedEx Cup for the second time in the three years of it's existence. (Tiger didn't compete last year because of knee surgery.)
Begay, the third member of the group, finished with a skin on the 18th hole, with Mike Weir going 0-fer for the second year in a row.
Tiger, as gracious as ever to his Stanford buddy, said no matter the event, he'd help out Notah.
Tiger will be going for his sixth PGA Tour win this Thursday at the Barclays.
"I'd do anything for him,'' Woods said. "What he's trying to do, and what he has done for Native American communities is unheard of, really.''
