Tiger Woods Learning Center

This post is dedicated to my sister Amy Bartlett. She works closely with Tiger Woods on the marketing for his his golf video game that her company Electronic Arts puts out. This is a quote from an email that she sent me today..."What about a blog entry about the good Tiger is doing for the underprivileged kids in the OC? Sounds good to me, then without further ado...Last Friday was the grand opening of the brand new Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim at the Dad Miller Golf Course. I think it's great that Tiger is able to give back to his community at such a young age. Heck, 99.999999% of us youngsters are usually just getting started making some decent money in life. Tiger's net worth is already above the 100 million mark according to Fortune Magazine which ranks the highest paid athletes and entertainers. I aspire to be where Tiger is at financially someday. I have to shoot for something, right? So congrats to Tiger on a very well played opening for his new center. I'll leave everyone with a picture of my sister with Tiger on one of his New York whirlwind business trips from the cover of Golf Digest.

    Allan! Thanks for the post on the Tiger Woods Learning Center. I am so interested to hear what your readers think about the center and the news of the dedication ceremony last week. Tiger spoke about letting the kids choose the cirriculum at the center. For example: They love watching CSI, so there is a forensics lab in the learning center. Want to be a rapper or musician? There is a recording studio. It's not just a place with a (super cool) golf course out in the back. It's a place for kids to dream and be inspired. Maria Shriver spoke at the dedication and she introduced President Clinton. He mentioned how impressive it is that Tiger is doing this kind of community work at age 30 and not age 60.
    I could go on and on about how wonderful the place is....thanks for the post, but yikes on the photo, I didn't want any publicity!

    Hugs from the bay area,
    Your sister Amy :)
