Tiger Woods to Receive another award


Tiger Woods Foundation has reached an estimated 10 million young people and dispersed more than $30 million in grants since its inception a decade ago and has been honored with the Golf Writers Association of America’s Charlie Bartlett Award.

The award, named for the first secretary of the GWAA, is given to a professional golfer for his or her unselfish contributions to the betterment of society.

Tiger Woods, created the foundation with his late father Earl in 1996. Earl, who passed away in May 2006, nurtured not only Tiger’s game, but his passion for giving back.

"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. "Receiving the Charlie Bartlett Award is a great honor, and I'm grateful for this support and recognition."

In addition to the Tiger Woods Learning Center, the foundation partnered with Target Stores in 2000 to create “Start Something,” a free program for youths 8-17. More than 3.8 million kids have enrolled in the program, which helps students define personal goals.


Former Bartlett winners include the Louisiana trio of Hal Sutton, David Toms and Kelly Gibson, as well as Val Skinner, Betsy King, Tom Watson, Payne Stewart, Tom Lehman, Arnold Palmer, Kenny Perry, Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade, Patty Berg and Andy North.
