Woods' World Challenge features 13 Ryder Cuppers


Tiger Woods’ annual tournament will look an awful lot like a Ryder Cup reunion tour.

Thirteen players from this year’s Ryder Cup – only Phil Mickelson is missing from the U.S. squad – are in the field for the 18-player World Challenge on Nov. 29-Dec. 2 at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Woods announced Wednesday that Northern Mutual has signed on as the new presenting sponsor of the tournament.

The field for the 14th annual event: Woods, Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker, Steve Stricker, Bubba Watson, Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Bo Van Pelt and Nick Watney.

The winner of the 72-hole, no-cut event receives $1 million, and proceeds go to the Tiger Woods Foundation.

“We are extremely excited about the depth and talent of our field, and are looking forward to another exciting tournament,” Woods said in a statement.
