Tiger Woods honored for work with foundation
The Golf Writers Association of America honored the world's No. 1 player today with the Charlie Bartlett Award for his work with the Tiger Woods Foundation, which has reached about 10 million young people and given out more than $30 million in grants.
He also opened the Tiger Woods Learning Center, a 35,000-square-foot facility in Anaheim, Calif., in which about 5,000 students in an after-school program studied engineering, robotics and forensic science.
"I'm proud of the work my foundation has accomplished, and I'm honored the GWAA has chosen to celebrate the 10 million young lives we've changed for the better," Tiger Woods said today. "Receiving the Charlie Bartlett Award is a great honor, and I'm grateful for this support and recognition."
Tiger Woods, who won nine times worldwide and two majors last year, also won the GWAA's player of the year award.
The award, named after the first secretary of the GWAA, is given to a professional golfer for unselfish contributions to the betterment of society. Tiger Woods will be honored at the GWAA annual dinner April 4 in Augusta, Ga.
Along with the learning center, the foundation joined with Target
Stores in 2000 to create "Start Something," a free program for children ages
8 through 17 that helps them define their goals.
