Augusta give $500,000 to Woods foundation

Tiger Woods is still reaping rewards from the Masters.

Augusta National chairman Hootie Johnson announced Tuesday that the club was donating $500,000 to the Tiger Woods Foundation, which supports community-based programs that promote health, education and welfare of children.

``At Augusta National, we continue to support those organizations that are equipped to make informed decisions on the use of the donations for the good of the game,'' Johnson said. ``Tiger's commitment to serve as a role model in this mission will have a huge influence on America's youth and the future of the game of golf.''

Augusta National already has pledged $3 million to charity this year, including $1 million to the First Tee program.

``I never expected this, and I am thrilled that Augusta National has come through in support of the Tiger Woods Foundation in such a big way,'' Woods said.

Woods is a two-time winner of the Masters, including his victory this year that made him the first player to win four straight professional majors.
