Shortly after arriving to play in the Buick Open at Warwick Hills, Woods agreed to donate the items.
'Tiger Woods is in a league of his own,' museum president Christy Coleman told the Detroit Free Press. 'We hope his donation could spark other high-profile African Americans to give either a financial donation or their artifacts.'
Along with memorabilia from Woods, the museum has items from Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali and Wilma Rudolph. The museum also is getting memorabilia that belonged to baseball Hall of Famer Roy Campanella.
