Tiger Jam 2015 was one for the books

Guests golfed, played, partied and repeated as the 17th annual, sold-out Tiger Jam rocked Las Vegas on May 15-16 at the MGM Grand. The two-day charity event, hosted by Tiger Woods, raised more than $1 million for the Tiger Woods Foundation’s college-access programs. Join the VIP list to not miss a second of the action in 2016 when Tiger Jam returns to the Las Vegas Strip for another unforgettable weekend.

Let’s take a look back at the exclusive, star-studded events of the weekend.

Tiger Jam started off Friday morning as Woods hosted an exclusive golf clinic for guests at the beautiful Shadow Creek. Woods shared stories from throughout the years and gave our guests an up-close view of his practice routine.

Guests had the opportunity to knock out the world’s top poker players and gamble with the best as they hit the tables Friday night at Tiger’s Poker Night, presented by the World Poker Tour. Poker legend Phil Hellmuth co-hosted this exciting night with Woods, which included celebrity participant Mark Cuban, professional poker players Antonio Esfandiari and Daniel Negreanu, and WPT commentators Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten.. As Tiger Woods Foundation CEO Rick Singer said, “All proceeds are helping young people break the cycle of poverty.”

Saturday began with another opportunity for our privileged guests to test their skills at the breathtaking Shadow Creek.

Earl Woods Scholarship Program recipient Kevin Ngo kicked off Saturday evening’s festivities as he shared his experience with the Tiger Woods Foundation. Kevin recently graduated from UC San Diego with a degree in computer science and is now working for Microsoft. Fun fact: He and Woods went to the same high school. Earl Woods Scholarship Program recipients like Kevin have a 100 percent graduation rate.

Next up was the live auction, which featured bucket list luxury items and out-of-this-world experiences, and was emceed by Chris Harrison, the host of “The Bachelor.”

Capping off Tiger Jam was a once-in-a-lifetime private concert by hit singer Ed Sheeran, and an afterparty at Hakkasan, one of Vegas’ hottest clubs. Guests battled it out in legendary danceoffs and enjoyed custom cocktails at one of the best parties on the Strip.

See you all next year!
