Tiger Woods’ TGR Foundation hits notable milestone as it celebrates its 25th anniversary

As far as golf goes, Riviera Country Club has not been friendly to Tiger Woods. At least, not as friendly as other golf courses—he does have a runner-up and seven other top-20 finishes at this kikuyu-covered gem, but he’s played 13 tournaments here and left without the trophy 13 times. It’s the most starts he’s made in a single PGA Tour event without a victory.

Woods’ relationship with Riv, however, extends much deeper than a scorecard. It’s where he made his first tour start, as a rail-thin 16-year-old in 1992. It’s a traffic-dependent hour away from where Tiger honed his game, at the Navy Golf Course in Cypress. And since 2017 it has hosted his event, the Genesis Invitational, which has coincided with major growth for his TGR Foundation.

Tiger Woods' TGR Foundation Celebrates Two Big Milestones in Quest to Help Students

Tiger Woods is hosting the world's best golfers in Los Angeles at the Genesis Invitational, and while Tiger is recovering from another back surgery, the spotlight is still shining on his TGR Foundation, which is celebrating two milestones.

The Foundation is turning 25 years old and has now impacted over two million students, many in Southern California.

Beyond Sport

TGR Foundation keeps youth active and engaged in STEM

A 2018 report by the White House Committee on STEM Education and the National Science and Technology Council, reiterated that societal success requires a STEM-literate modern workforce that is adept at navigating an increasingly high-tech, digital and connected world. However, data from a test commonly taken by US college-bound high school students (the ACT) found that only 20% are ready for courses typically required for a STEM major.

Since the start of school closures due to COVID-19, Sport and STEM Alliance member, the TGR Foundation - A Tiger Woods Charity, has pivoted its TGR Learning Lab programs to a complete virtual format while continuing to keep students engaged in learning and active beyond their academic studies.

The 1,000-mile drive that changed Tiger Woods' foundation

Tiger Woods wasn’t sleeping because no one could. The country had been sucker-punched, and it was dazed, disoriented. So instead of enjoying the comforts of a bed before a World Golf Championship at Bellerive Country Club, Woods found himself at a gas station in the dark of night on Sept. 12, 2001, hours away from St. Louis, civilization and cell phone service. He had set off for Isleworth, his home, welcoming the 1,000-mile that led to a change in his foundation to have an impact beyond golf.
