Tiger Woods hosted two-days of golf, fun and surprises at the 21st annual “Tiger Jam.” More than 600 guests attended the May benefit for the TGR Foundation at MGM Grand. The charity event opened with a private golf exhibition and Q&A session at Shadow Creek Golf Course, where Woods showcased his practice routine, answered questions on his Masters win and gave swing tips. Guests then headed to MGM Grand’s Whiskey Down for Tiger’s Poker Night. Presented by the World Poker Tour, the event featured athletes, pro players and 40 amateurs facing off at the tables, while emcee and 15-time WSOP champion Phil Hellmuth entertained the crowd. The next day, guests returned to Shadow Creek for the golf tournament hosted by the Golf Channel’s Blair O’Neal. At the evening’s VIP reception, Chris Harrison, host of “The Bachelor,” led guests in a toast to celebrate the 2019 Masters champion before the two discussed the win on stage. They were joined by Harvard student Chiamaka “Chia” Obilo, a TGR Foundation Earl Woods scholar, who shared her journey and how the foundation has helped her and others pursue their dreams. Guests then bid on items in the live and silent auctions, and viewed a performance by the dance group Jabbawockeez, before heading to Park MGM to see Janet Jackson’s new show, “Metamorphosis.” The show featured the artist’s greatest hits and a celebration of her chart-topping album “Rhythm Nation.” A post-party followed
at nightclub On the Record with cocktails, light bites and music by Grammy winner Mark Ronson. The annual fundraiser has raised more than $21 million to support TGR Foundation programs.
