Fellow golfer Notah Begay III scooped Woods on Thursday by announcing his former Stanford University team-mate would be playing on August 31 in a mixed-team charity event, the Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge.
Woods, who this week is missing his second straight major championship, the British Open, while he recovers from an injured leg, has not confirmed his participation. The event was originally scheduled for July 5 but postponed to allow Woods more time to recover.
Begay said others playing in the event at Turning Stone Resort near Verona, New York, include Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan. They will play with LPGA golfers Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen, Natalie Gulbis and Annika Sorenstam.
The event raises money for charities aiding Native American youth.
