Top golfers on charity mission to Taiwan

Tiger Woods has promised to help raise funds at a charity tournament in Taiwan next month aimed at raising $10 million to aid victims of September's earthquake.

The event has replaced the Asian Tour-sanctioned Johnnie Walker classic and will be played over the Ta Shee course, less than 80 km from the devastated epicentre zone.

Organisers said Woods had agreed to appear and will play nine holes with Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui. The world number one will also auction his clubs and run a golf clinic.

Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Nick Faldo had also confirmed their appearance, organisers added.
