DUBLIN, Ohio – Tiger Woods called his second-round effort Friday afternoon in the Memorial Tournament “a mixed bag,” and, naturally, he had some mixed feelings about it, too. The five-time winner of Jack Nicklaus’ event carded an even-par 72 at Muirfield Village Golf Club and completed 36 holes in two-under 142. He’ll begin Saturday’s third […]
DUBLIN, Ohio – A late burst of birdies gave Tiger Woods his first sub-par opening round in the Memorial Tournament since 2013. It also gave him something to build on. Coming off a missed cut at the PGA Championship, Woods birdied three of his last five holes Thursday for a 2-under-par 70 at Muirfield Village […]

DUBLIN, Ohio — As he trudged up the steep hill from the ninth green to the 10th tee at Muirfield Village Golf Club Wednesday morning, Tiger Woods locked eyes with the familiar, smiling visage of Memorial Tournament founder and host Jack Nicklaus. The two golf titans hugged and chatted. And then Jack’s wife, Barbara, stepped […]
Although my academic career at Pitzer College has come to an end, my learning journey will not. Two weeks prior to graduation, the foreseeable future was ironically still abstract and difficult for me to grasp. It brought me a feeling of excitement and nostalgia, encouraging me to reflect on my last four years at Pitzer College and six years as an Earl Woods Scholar.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — Tiger Woods badly pulled the opening drive of his second round on Friday, his ball coming to rest in Bethpage Black’s thick rough down the left side at the par-4 first. Woods didn’t know it at the time, but he and that lush lettuce were about to become very close over the […]

FARMINGDALE, N.Y.— He appeared slightly subdued, and his play, in stretches, was substandard. Tiger Woods’s opening round of the 101st PGA Championship Thursday possessed more than a hint of rust that simply was too much for him to overcome. Having not competed since his emotion-laden victory in the Masters and fighting an unknown ailment that limited […]

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — Tiger Woods’ Monday practice round finished on the ninth hole. Course cartographers will note this is one of the farthest points from the clubhouse at Bethpage Black, a byproduct of the out-and-back design and a trek that feels like it requires a sherpa. Especially in this weather, Long Island kissed with sub-50 […]

When asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, a common response from young students interested in animals is “a veterinarian.” Although becoming a veterinarian is a noble and valued profession, one that certainly appeals to a wide range of people, both young and old, more often than not students are simply unaware of the vast opportunities available to them in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields that align directly with their passions. Opportunities that can advance human understanding of complex issues, provide life-saving research or solve difficult problems.

Last summer, I took the first steps of my college journey by signing up for College Bound Academy (CBA) at the TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim, CA. Coming from the Phillipines, I grew up with no prior knowledge of the U.S. education system. As the oldest among my siblings, I often had to turn to my friends for guidance. I followed their actions in hopes that what I was doing was right, but I realized that I shouldn’t be dependent on them. From then on, I took charge of my life and made myself responsible for my future.
Within two and a half weeks, I realized the significance and impact of friendship on the other side of the globe. I have had friends back home for years, many of whom I met during my first two years at Stony Brook University in New York. However, the ones I met throughout my study abroad experience in Florence, Italy were memorable. These friends were significant because through them and my short time abroad, I came to realize something about myself and learned exactly how I was meant to live my life.
Our 19th annual Tiger Jam at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was a weekend to remember.

Adrian Arias, the Earl Woods Scholar Program’s first lawyer, took the stage during Tiger Jam’s live and silent auction to give the keynote speech.
