As the nation transitioned to social distancing and remote living in response to COVID-19, student learning was an important concern. Using more than 20 years of experience, TGR Foundation responded quickly and continued serving our community of students, educators and families.
As we reflect on our virtual spring and summer programs over the last five months, and head into a new academic year, we’re proud of what we have achieved and motivated to continue our efforts to empower youth through education.
Today, TGR Foundation announced the appointment of Gordon McNeill as the foundation’s new President and CEO. McNeill, a seasoned nonprofit leader with experience in education, corporate strategy, capital raising and event management will lead the foundation as it continues its mission to empower students to pursue their passions through education.
McNeill succeeds Rick Singer, who announced his retirement after serving as the foundation’s President and CEO since 2014. Singer will assist in the leadership transition as a consultant to the foundation.
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — With an unremarkable 23-inch putt for par, this strange 2019-’20 PGA Tour season came to an unspectacular end for Tiger Woods. Woods shot his fourth straight over-par round at fiery Olympia Fields, a one-over 71 that will see him wind up well back of the top-five finish he needed at the […]
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Tiger Woods is on to Winged Foot. Well, not quite yet. Woods still has one round left here at the BMW Championship, but a third-round 72 left on Saturday him at 10 over for the tournament, all but eliminating his chances of qualifying for next week’s Tour Championship. Thus, Sunday’s final […]
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Sometimes, golf taunts. Tiger Woods couldn’t buy a putt all day. When he needed them to drop, they wouldn’t, and he slid well down the leader board at the BMW Championship. And then, when the round was already lost, a long-distance putt found the bottom. Of course. Woods holed a 37-footer […]
Jack’s Bay – A New Private Club & Community in Rock Sound (Rock Sound, Bahamas) August 28, 2020 – Tiger Woods and Jack’s Bay Company, developers of the new Jack’s Bay private club and community in Rock Sound, Eleuthera, Bahamas, opened The Playground, a spectacular 10-hole, par-3 golf course created by Woods’ TGR Design. The […]
OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — It felt like a U.S. Open on Thursday at Olympia Fields. One week after Dustin Johnson made golf look video-game easy at The Northern Trust, the BMW Championship offered an entirely different test. The greens were slick, the rough juicy, the wind howling. The lowest anyone got was three under, Hideki […]

When she’s not working toward her dream college and career Tanis Priddle, a rising senior at Eugene Ashley High School and the North Carolina School, can be found performing at an athletic event or varsity cheerleading competition for Eugene Ashley High School, practicing one of the many string instruments she plays or leaving Wilmington, North Carolina for a spontaneous travel adventure.
After learning about TGR Foundation’s virtual College Bound Academy, Tanis took advantage of the opportunity. She recently reflected on her experience and how it’s shaping her path to college and career success.
NORTON, Mass. — Ahhh. That was more like it. On the final day of the Northern Trust, Tiger Woods finally approached TPC Boston the way the rest of the field had been doing all week, as a course begging for birdies. He made six of them on his front nine Sunday, shooting a blazing five-under […]
NORTON, Mass. — The pairing was glitzy. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Nineteen major championships and an even 100 PGA Tour wins between them. Both players made the cut on the number, and they were the second group off on Saturday morning at the Northern Trust, but there was still a semi-buzz in the air […]
NORTON, Mass.—The good news is Tiger Woods will play the weekend here at TPC Boston. An even-par 71 on Friday had him at three under through 36-holes of the Northern Trust, which was exactly the cutoff in this first FedEx Cup Playoff event. The bad news is Woods failed to take advantage of a course […]
Norton, Massachusetts – Tiger Woods had hardly missed a shot through eight holes at TPC Boston. Yet he found himself one over par, struggling to find the momentum that has eluded him in his two post-COVID starts, in danger of squandering another solid ball-striking day and leaving the course with nothing to show for his […]
This year since the transition to remote learning, I’ve consistently read and heard about the failure of remote learning and how students will continue to fall further and further behind because teaching can’t happen without a classroom.
We are at an inflection point, one that challenges teachers, and everyone in education, to not succumb to the way things used to be, but instead, give voice and energy to what can be for each and every classroom around the country. Now is the time to create new spaces for learning – without fear of failure.
We encouraged our TGR Learning Lab educators to experiment during their summer virtual classes, and they learned seven practices that proved to be effective in remote learning environments.
A longtime TGR Learning Lab (TGRLL) student, 15-year old Nathan Zet is a familiar face at our flagship facility in Anaheim, Ca. Despite the recent shift from in-person classes to virtual learning due to COVID-19, Nathan has remained an equally dedicated student. A sophomore at John F. Kennedy High School in La Palma, Nathan is the only student who participated in every TGRLL virtual summer class offered including Space Science, Photography: Visual Storytelling, Healthy Habits at Home and What’s “App”ening in Computer Science, in addition to taking virtual golf lessons. In an interview with TGR Foundation, Nathan reflects on his favorite classes, hobbies and his dream job.
SAN FRANCISCO — Among the bottomless bucket of clichés, one rings truer than most: Better late than never. Better to shoot something in the 60s on Sunday than something in the 70s, even if you finish your round some 90 minutes before the leaders tee off. Tiger Woods will leave TPC Harding Park and head […]
SAN FRANCISCO — Golf frustrates. It vexes, and it perplexes, and no one is immune. Not the beginner, playing for the first time. Not the leader of a tournament, who can always think of two or three shots he wants back. And not Tiger Woods, who has come as close as any to mastering this […]
SAN FRANCISCO—The new putter cooperated on Thursday. It did no such thing on Friday. With a new flatstick in the bag for the second straight round, Tiger Woods struggled all day on TPC Harding Park’s greens en route to a two-over 72 at the PGA Championship. At even par for the tournament, he’ll enter the […]
SAN FRANCISCO — Often times, the misses teach us more than the perfect ones. Every player struts after hitting a shot right where they’re looking. But the misses, and where they end up—that tells you how a player is really feeling about his game. Tiger Woods missed his tee shot on the par-3 17th. Disgusted […]
SAN FRANCISCO — The great ones have a knack for persuasion. When an athlete as accomplished as Tiger Woods says something, your first instinct is to believe him. Even if all the evidence points in the other direction. On paper, Tiger Woods is up against it this week at the PGA Championship. Yes, he has […]
