Rounds of golf with Tiger up for auction

In a partnership announced today, the Tiger Woods Foundation will offer exclusive packages through auctions on eBay, including a chance for a foursome to play golf with the world's No. 1 player at his home course in Florida.

"Tiger decided a couple of years ago to play one round of golf a year for his charity," agent Mark Steinberg said. "We've decided to partner with eBay to auction that off."

Last year, four men combined to bid $204,000 through ultimatebid.com to play 18 holes with Woods at Isleworth Country Club outside Orlando.

Along with the golf, other auctions soon to be available on eBay include:


Two pro-am packages for the Williams World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., in December, which will include a spot in the pro-am, guest tickets, tickets for the pairings luncheon and tickets for the awards dinner.

Two packages to the 2002 Tiger Jam benefit concert, which included four spots in the golf outing, 10 tickets to the concert with seating in the first three rows, and a table for 10 at the dinner and auction event attended by Woods.

Lunch with Earl Woods.
Steinberg said a fair market value will be placed on each item. eBay would get a percentage above the market value plus costs, with net proceeds going to the Tiger Woods Foundation.

He said it was not an endorsement deal, and that eBay would not be allowed to use Woods' image to promote its online auction site.

The Tiger Woods Foundation, started by Woods five years ago when he turned professional, supports community programs that promote health, education and welfare for children through golf clinics, grants and scholarships.
