Not a bad setting to raise some money; Las Vegas, golf, Bon Jovi, poker and, oh yeah, Tiger Woods!
Tiger Jam is in its 15th year. To date, the fundraiser has done so to the tune of 13 million for programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation. Empowering youth is a major focus off the golf course while trying to win Majors on the course.
Today (Friday) he held a golf clinic for a couple hundred people at Cascata Golf Club. He hit balls and talked his way through his warm-up routine. The people were able to ask questions, even talking in his backswing!

The 25-year-old finished the season as a healthy scratch for the final six games of the Pittsburgh series. During the regular season, however, the former first rounder enjoyed a breakout, scoring a career-high 15 goals in 66 games, despite averaging just 10:41 per game—the lowest ice time total among Washington’s full-time forwards.
On Monday afternoon, the Caps announced that they had tendered qualifying offers to seven restricted free agents—Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, Andre Burakovsky, Philipp Grubauer, Chandler Stephenson, Liam O’Brien and Travis Boyd. Connolly did not receive an offer, but it was believed at the time that the sides were closing in on a deal.
Although the season ended under less than ideal circumstances for Connolly, both the player and the team had remained hopeful of reaching an agreement.
“I'd like to have him back; he's a young guy who still has some upside,” GM Brian MacLellan said last month. “I thought he had a very good year this year.”

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.
Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.
In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.
It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
