TGR Foundation supports founder in MetLife MatchUp for a shot at $750K

The MetLife MatchUp recognizes players who have overcome challenging situations on the golf course throughout the PGA Tour season. Our founder, Tiger Woods, advanced to the final round with a chance to earn $750K for TGR Foundation.

Founded in 1996 as a means to provide more for children who have less, TGR Foundation transforms young lives with innovative science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum, college-access programs and digital initiatives.

The MetLife Matchup winnings can go a long way in helping TGR Foundation support underrepresented youth throughout the world.

The proceeds will directly impact our wide range of programs including:

  • Earl Woods Scholar Program, a bedrock of the foundation for over a decade, has helped nearly 200 scholars attend top universities around the country and boasts a 98% graduation rate
