Tigers Chevron World Challenge gets earlier date

RSS

Sources told Golf Channels Steve Sands that the Chevron World Challenge will be played two weeks earlier than originally scheduled. The Tiger Woods hosted season-ending event now will be staged the week after Thanksgiving, Dec. 3-6, at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks , Calif. It was originally scheduled for Dec. 17-20.
 
Woods has made it no secret that he always wanted an earlier date for the 16-man field because he felt that the late December date was too close to the holidays and only a few weeks away from the PGA Tours season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship in Kapalua, Hawaii.
 
The early December date opened after the Del Webb Father-Son Challenge was cancelled for this year. Father-Son Challenge tournament officials said that they hoped the event will return in 2010. It had been held every year since 1996.
 
Larry and Drew Nelson won last years Father-Son Challenge at ChampionsGate outside Orlando, Fla. Vijay Singh won the 2008 Chevron World Challenge by a shot over Steve Stricker.
