The Tiger Woods tournament at Sherwood Country Club has a new title sponsor for the next year, the Los Angeles Newspaper Group has learned. It will be called the Northwestern Mutual Challenge. Last year, Northwestern Mutual was a presenting sponsor, and Tiger Woods had to pay some of the costs for the tournament out of his own pocket.
“Northwestern Mutual has been an excellent partner over the years, and we are pleased
they will be the title sponsor of the World Challenge,” Tiger Woods said. “I’m really looking
forward to competing this year. This event welcomes a fantastic field, and it’s always fun
to come home and play in front of the Southern California fans.”
