Woods, Westwood to headline NB3 Challenge field


Tiger Woods is returning to headline the sixth annual Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge, and he’s bringing a handful of world-class players with him.

This year’s Challenge, scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 28, will feature an expanded field of 12 players. They will play in pairs with a best-ball format, and the combined score of those two pairs will constitute the final score for that team.

Team USA will be comprised of Woods, Begay, Rickie Fowler and Bo Van Pelt. Team International will be made up of Lee Westwood, Charl Schwartzel, Nicolas Colsaerts and Henrik Stenson. K.J. Choi, Charlie Wi, John Huh and James Hahn will represent Team Asia.

The event has raised more than $4 million in the past five years, with all proceeds directly benefiting the Notah Begay III Foundation and its ongoing work in Native American communities.
