Woods has donated over $12M in earnings

Greg McLaughlin, the tournament director of the Chevron World Challenge, has praised Tiger Woods continued charitable commitments revealing that Woods has donated over $12 million of earnings on the tour since 1999.

Woods has been donating the money to his Tiger Woods Foundation that supports “college access for underserved youth”. McLaughlin is also president of the foundation.

The 14-time major winner has been giving his Chevron World Challenge earnings to his foundation since the charity event began in 1999.

McLaughlin also revealed that Woods has done the same with money earned from two official PGA Tour events that also benefit the foundation - the Deutsche Bank Championship, which began in 2003; and the AT&T National, which began in 2007.

Woods has won the Chevron five times, Deutsche Bank once and the AT&T National once. After his win Sunday at Sherwood, Woods' earnings from all three events are now $12,510,777.

"He's the largest contributor in time and money to the foundation since inception,'' McLaughlin said. "It's huge. If we can get a $1.2 million donation at the end of the year, it gives you the opportunity to have a great end-of-year fundraising in a calendar year, which is great for us.''
