7.40am 8th November 2006 - People

Tiger Woods has announced the creation of Tiger Woods Design. “My goal is to provide a unique collection of amazing courses all over the world that represent what I love about golf,” said Tiger Woods. “I‘m very excited to announce the formation of this company and get to work on finding the right projects for my first few courses.”
The company’s philosophy is to elevate the standards of golf course design and create enjoyable, challenging courses worldwide. At the heart of this vision is Woods‘ desire to apply his first-hand knowledge and personal experience to the design of each golf course.
“I‘ve had the luxury of playing golf around the world, and I‘ve spent a lot of time evaluating how to play all kinds of courses,” Woods said. “I‘d like to share my experience and the lessons I‘ve learned and hopefully create some amazing, fun courses.”
Woods plans for TWD to encompass a global strategy that appeals to all skill levels. The organization will also seek unique properties for course development, while taking care to preserve the natural habitat of each location.
“There are golfers everywhere that may never get a chance to play a links course in Scotland, a tree-lined course in America or the sand belts of Australia,” Woods added. “Hopefully I can bring some of those elements into their backyards.”
Before moving forward with Tiger Woods Design, Woods sought the advice of friends and experts in the industry. “I‘ve spent a lot of time talking with experts in this field and gathering as much information as possible about what a great course should be,” Woods said. “Friends like Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio have been a tremendous help by sharing their support and advice on this new venture. I hope I can bring as much to this industry as they have over the years.”
