VERONA, N.Y. -- Notah Begay III was nearly at a loss for words.
"I am humbled," Begay said Monday in announcing that Tiger Woods, his former roommate at Stanford University, would play in a skins game in August to benefit Native American children. "You come up with certain ideas and sometimes they come true. Part of what I learned at Stanford is that you try and create win-win situations, and this is a win-win for everybody. What a testament to our foundation's work."
Woods, who originally agreed to play last year but had to pull out after undergoing knee surgery, has rarely played in charity events like this. He will be competing against Begay, Mike Weir, and Camilo Villegas on a layout he's never played, Atunyote (uh-DUNE'-yote) Golf Club. The course, one of three at Turning Stone Resort and Casino, also hosts a PGA Tour event.
