16th ANNUAL TIGER JAM ROCKS LAS VEGAS MAY 16-17
Tiger Jam Brings World-class Poker, Exclusive Golf and Headliner OneRepublic to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS – GRAMMY-nominated pop rock band OneRepublic will headline the 16th annual Tiger Jam at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, May 16-17. The two-day charity event hosted by Tiger Woods combines world-class golf, high-stakes poker, gourmet cuisine and exclusive VIP experiences into a star-studded weekend benefitting the Tiger Woods Foundation’s college-access programs.
“We are excited to welcome OneRepublic to Tiger Jam for the first time in our 16 years,” Woods said. “This unique and entertaining event gives so much to my foundation, helping us grow our programs and providing even more young people with a shot at college.”
OneRepublic released its debut set, Dreaming Out Loud, in 2007. The album included the smash single “Apologize,” which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide. The band’s sophomore album, 2009’s Waking Up, produced three singles including, “All the Right Moves,” “Secrets” and “Good Life.” OneRepublic released its third studio album, Native, in March 2013, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The set includes hits “If I Lose Myself,” “Feel Again” and “Counting Stars,” which reached No. 1 on Top 40 Radio.
The 2014 Tiger Jam will kick off Friday, May 16 when poker legend Phil Hellmuth teams up with Woods to host Poker Night presented by the World Poker Tour. For a $10,000 buy-in, participants will join Woods, Hellmuth, Poker Hall of Famer Doyle Brunson and other great players for an exclusive night of poker followed by a Pre-Jam Party at Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay. Tournament prizes include a package with unique golf experiences, Pro-Am playing spots in premier PGA TOUR events and other exclusive items.
Prior to Saturday evening’s live concert, guests can participate in a morning golf outing at Cascata Golf Course before attending the VIP reception at Mandalay Bay. This exclusive pre-concert party will feature gourmet food and spirits as well as live and silent auctions filled with luxury items. Following a rocking performance from OneRepublic at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, the night will conclude with a post-concert party at the House of Blues.
A variety of VIP packages are available to attend this one-of-a-kind charity concert event and experience a fun weekend in Vegas.

At Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses across the country, scholars in grades 5-12 are immersed in an interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum. Here, they make the connection between school and career, while planning a road map to college. Tailored to the needs of the first-generation scholar, the Earl Woods Scholarship Program provides four-year college scholarships coupled with an unyielding support system. But we don’t stop there. Through dedicated mentors, professional development workshops and internships, our one-to-one philosophy ensures the success of our students in college and beyond.
