Tiger Woods to Play in Ireland Next Month

Published June 9, 2010

LIMERICK, Ireland (AP) — Tiger Woods will make his first appearance outside of the United States this year when he plays in a charity pro-am in Ireland next month.

Woods has agreed to play in a two-day event organized by Irish racehorse owner JP McManus.

The 36-hole pro-am will be held at Adare Manor, which is a former Irish Open venue, on July 5-6, the start of the week before the British Open at St Andrews.

The last JP McManus pro-am in 2005 raised >30 million ($36 million) for nominated charities.

In a statement issued by the organizers, Woods said: "Like my own Foundation, I understand the importance and necessity of raising funds to help deserving individuals. This tournament does just that."

The Tiger Woods Foundation provides educational support programs and a learning center for young people.
