Woods Hosts Sixth Tiger Jam Benefit

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- Despite a disappointing loss at the Masters, Tiger Woods was all smiles Saturday at a benefit concert to raise money for his Tiger Woods Foundation.
'I'll tell you one thing, losing is not fun,' Woods said of the Augusta National, where Canadian golfer Mike Weir won the green jacket. 'But you learn from it and move on.'
The sixth annual Tiger Jam concert featured Bon Jovi and a performance by the Goo Goo Dolls.
'To be able to help kids, it's a dream come true,' the 27-year-old Woods said. 'It means everything.'
Bon Jovi donated $25,000, Woods said.
With funds raised from the concert, the Tiger Woods Foundation will partner with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation to adopt the music program at Jim Bridger Middle School in Las Vegas. Additional proceeds will help fund other local charities as well as GRAMMY in the Schools and the VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
