A culmination of golf camps throughout the year unites aspiring young golfers at the TGR Learning Lab each summer for the annual Super Junior Golf Camp. This year, clubs swayed and balls flew as 70 campers practiced elements of the game from June 18-22.
Last week, TGR Foundation wrapped its 6th annual College Bound Academy, held at the TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim, California. We welcomed nearly 50 rising high school seniors from the Anaheim Union High School District for a two-week immersive course in all things college! Although the program aims to introduce students to the college application process, it does much more. It helps them build resilience and confidence.
Last week, I had the opportunity to facilitate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities at the TGR Learning Lab Activity Zone at The National golf tournament in Washington D.C. Our tent was unique as we partnered with different groups to offer visitors a range of dynamic and engaging activities. A key takeaway from my week at The National was just how crucial collaboration is in all that we do, whether in the classroom or at our events.
POTOMAC, Md. – Tiger Woods closed with a 4-under-par 66 and tied for fourth Sunday in the Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac, his second-best showing of the season. It marked Woods’ third top-5 finish and fifth top-12 in 11 starts this year on the PGA Tour. Paired with Bronson Burgoon on another sweltering, sun-baked […]
POTOMAC, Md. – Saturday is called moving day on the PGA Tour, and that’s what Tiger Woods did at the Quicken Loans National. After a sluggish start, he reeled off consecutive birdies at four, five, six and seven to climb within one stroke of the lead at sauna-like TPC Potomac. When he slammed in a […]
POTOMAC, MD. – Tiger Woods is back in the hunt. The tournament host collected seven birdies and matched his lowest score of the season with a 5-under-par 65 on Friday to vault into a tie for 11th in the Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac. Last month, he posted a 7-under 65 in the third […]
POTOMAC, Md. – Making a putter switch, Tiger Woods matched par with a 70 on Thursday in the first round of Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac. Frustrated on the greens in his last four starts, he changed from his usual Scotty Cameron Newport 2 to a TaylorMade TP Collection Ardmore 3. Woods missed six […]

Of all the service men and women who attend the Quicken Loans National […]
POTOMAC, Md. – No matter what happens the rest of the year – and a ton of golf remains – Tiger Woods’ return to competition has been eye-popping. He hasn’t secured an elusive 80th PGA Tour victory yet, but Woods is closing in. Not that it detracts from his accomplishments. Last year, Woods was 600th […]

Calling all kids – it’s time to get excited! At this year’s Quicken Loans National, youngsters and their families will once again have a chance to take a break from the golf action and indulge themselves at the TGR Learning Lab Activity Zone. Free to all fans at the tournament, the learning lab tent will feature four unique activities, all connecting science, technology, learning and fun into one. Here’s a look at the featured activities.
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Tiger Woods was filled with optimism last Sunday when he arrived at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club and played nine holes with Jordan Spieth. His ball-striking and short game were solid, and he fully expected a balky putter to heat up after lengthy home practice sessions. Woods did not expect to miss the […]
Last month, TGR Foundation made its way to Las Vegas to host its milestone 20th Tiger Jam, the sold-out, exclusive two-day charity event held at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Like all TGR Foundation events, Tiger Jam’s overarching purpose is and always has been to raise awareness and support for the students and scholars we serve around the world. To highlight the work we do and the reason we do it, Earl Woods Scholar Desiree Sim took to the stage at the weekend’s VIP reception.
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Tiger Woods battled back after a bad start, but couldn’t get untracked Thursday in the first round of the 118th U.S. Open at windy Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. Competing in the tournament for the first time since 2015, the three-time champion slipped to 4-over par after two holes in treacherous conditions and […]

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Tiger Woods concluded his preparation for the 118th U.S. Open on Wednesday at rainy Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. He was scheduled to play an early morning practice round, but scrapped it due to inclement weather. Woods hit balls and worked on his short game, sharing a few laughs with Rory McIlroy. Woods […]
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. – Ten years ago, Tiger Woods was preparing to play in the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California … with a broken left leg and damaged ACL in his knee.

Summer has arrived for students in the Anaheim Union High School District, but as textbooks close, possibilities open for junior high students engaging in STEM for a week this summer at the TGR Learning Lab.
A little over a year ago, the Earl Woods Scholar Program admitted its first cohort of Washington, D.C. high school students at the end of their junior year. This past weekend, we hosted this inaugural group at our first D.C. High School Graduation Celebration Luncheon at Catholic University. In addition to honoring our scholars, the luncheon provided an opportunity to thank all of our families, teachers, counselors and partners who make our work possible and are invested in our scholars’ success.
