Tiger to return for Begay charity event

PGA Tour stars Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler will tee it up

alongside NFL quarterbacks Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys and Sam

Bradford of the St. Louis Rams in the Notah Begay Challenge.

The fourth annual NB3 Challenge will be staged at Turning Stone

Resort and Casino’s Atunyote (ah-DUNE’-yote) Golf Club on July 5.

The format this year is a two-person team, best-ball shootout over

18 holes.

Begay, who also will play, said the rest of the field of eight

will be announced before June 1.

The Challenge is the chief fundraiser for Begay’s charity, the

NB3 Foundation, which has a goal of fighting obesity and diabetes

among Native American youth. The event is a collaboration between

the resort’s owner, the Oneida Indian Nation of New York.
