Tiger Woods is moving his World Challenge from his old home in California to his old course in Florida -- Isleworth Country Club. Al Macinnis Blues Jersey . Woods said Friday that his charity event, which attracts a world-class field even without being part of any tour, will move in December 2014 to Isleworth, the course where he honed his professional game from 1996 until moving away to south Florida two years ago. Isleworth is among several golf communities owned by the Tavistock Group, which will share the tournament proceeds with the Tiger Woods Foundation. "We have a longstanding relationship with Tavistock Group and my friend, Joe Lewis, and I am thrilled to see it grow in support of our foundations," Woods said. The World Challenge had been at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., since 2001. It was played the first two years in Arizona. The move appears to be the end of the Tavistock Cup, which began as match between tour players from Isleworth and Lake Nona and since has expanded to include other Tavistock properties, such as Albany in the Bahamas. One possibility is for the World Challenge to move to the Bahamas, perhaps as early as 2015. The Tavistock Cup is not part of the spring 2014 schedule on the PGA Tours website -- noteworthy because the tours schedule still includes the CVS Charity Classic, another unofficial event -- and the exhibition is not listed on the Tavistock Cups website. "We have had 10 great years hosting our own Tavistock Cup golf tournament, and we believe this new partnership with the World Challenge will allow us to expand our presence and investment in the game," said Andy Odenbach, vice-president of Sports Ventures at Tavistock Group. The World Challenge would bring far more credibility, and attention, to Isleworth because it is a four-day event that has been televised on NBC Sports. And while the World Challenge is unofficial, it began offering world ranking points in 2010 by developing a criteria for the field and limited its two sponsor exemptions to the top 50 in the world. Graeme McDowell is the defending champion. This years 18-man field features 14 players from the top 20. The World Challenge is so important to Woods that last year he contributed about $4 million of his own money to help cover operating costs. Proceeds led to building the first Tiger Woods Learning Center on 14 acres near where Woods grew up in Cypress, Calif., and next to the H.G. "Dad" Miller Golf Course where he spent so much time as a kid. The tournament was the first visible showcase of Woods foundation, and his father Earl, who died in 2006, was a big part of it. "Weve been looking for ways to expand our relationship with Tavistock and this is a perfect fit," said Greg McLaughlin, the president and CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation. "We very proud of the $25 million the World Challenge has raised, and weve been evaluating the best path forward to continue this work." It was not clear how Tavistock would be presented in the title of the tournament, if at all. Northwestern Mutual has signed on as the title sponsor for the World Challenge for Dec. 5-8 event at Sherwood; the company is not mentioned with the 2014 event. Sherwood first became part of the golf landscape as the host of the Shark Shootout, now played in Naples, Fla. Wayne Gretzky Jersey . Not Peyton Manning. Hes holding on to the heartache to stoke his competitive fire. Jay Bouwmeester Blues Jersey .com) - The Vancouver Canucks will try to win two straight games for the first time since mid-January on Monday night as they play host to the struggling New York Islanders. http://www.jerseynhlblueshockey.com/kevin-shattenkirk-hockey-jersey/ .C. -- Colin Kaepernick raced into the end zone, then pretended to rip open his shirt with both hands imitating Cam Newtons Superman touchdown celebration.I have no idea why Jonathan Martin left the Miami Dolphins but as more time moves on, it seems like Richie Incognito is a special kind of disgusting human being. Some will say that Martin is too sensitive while others will say that it is part of the way football is in the locker room. But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much. There are absolutely and positively limits to what is tolerated and accepted when it comes to hazing and harassing as a player, and this was way over the line. Should Jonathan Martin have stood up for himself more? Perhaps, but I am sure he feared even more isolation than he has already experienced, so you kind of roll with the punches - to a point. There is not a human being on the planet that does not have a breaking point when it comes to handling pressure because we are biological not mechanical in our physiology. And given the same circumstances, many would exit the environment if they felt there was no respect for themselves as a human being and their life was threatened. If I was to take sides, I would take the side of Martin because he is educated; his family is educated. Stanford and Harvard are places of advanced human evolution. I doubt Richie Incognito is educated after being kick out of both the University of Oregon and Nebraska. Again, moments like this make football players look like idiots of the highest kind and there are quite a few. And there are others of the extreme opposite that represent themselves with class and dignity of the highest level. The truth is that in high level football, sometimes you have to be aggressive and other times analytical, and those moments interact countless times over the course of a season and game. But that is controllable and accepted. I think that what Martin was experiencing he could not rationalize or accept as controllable or acceptable. A football locker room sometimes - and I do want to emphasize sometimes - is a very intimidating place. There is immense money to be earned from people in the majority of cases coming from no money. There is a constant and tangible pressure to compete against another team, another player on anotheer team, other players on your team and in many ways, yourself. Jori Lehtera Jersey. There is little gratification in winning because within 12 hours after you win, all discussion is about the next game and how to win that one. College football is not the same. You have more "friends" that you will have at any point of your life because youre all similar in age and experience. In pro football as a rookie who is not starting and contributing, youre lucky if you have two "friends." Playing and being a part of the starters group would accelerate to more than two because of one word: respect. When you start, it is like moving up in football society; a new neighborhood of similar real estate value. That is one of the reasons that this is a bit confusing in that Jonathan Martin did start and played right beside Incognito, and truth is they need each other to excel as individual players. But I wonder if Incognito resented Martins education and class - a Stanford product that was a first round pick and is naturally athletic -and I cant help but wonder how many other players accepted this and enhanced it. Whether it is Justin Blackmon, Aldon Smith, Brandon Meriweather and others of less notoriety, the opportunity and the benefits of the opportunity are being thrown away. Coaches want dependability and performance and of the two, the first is more important than the second because without the first you cant create the second. In retrospect, it is so easy to express what should have been done; Martin should have stood up for himself more, Incognito should grow up and act like an adult and Joe Philbin should be in touch with his team to a much higher degree. The people who make decisions on free agent personal should put a bigger emphasis on character. There is lots of blame to go around. In the end, the truth may be out there but no guarantee of it becoming public knowledge. One career is destroyed - Incognito - while one is in the balance - Martin. And yes, the sport of football takes another shot as to the quality of people involved. There are many; we just dont hear about them as we have with Incognito. What a contradiction of a last name.
