Woods heads rescheduled Grand Slam

Tiger Woods, the reigning PGA champion, will return to defend his title as part of an elite foursome comprised of the year's major champions in the Grand Slam of Golf, to be held at Poipu Bay Resort Golf Course and Hyatt Regency Kauai Resort and Spa in Hawaii from November 23-24.

Woods, who captured the 81st PGA Championship last month at Medinah, will headline the $1 million event, which was moved back one week to accommodate the schedules of the major champions.

Masters titlist Jose Maria Olazabal, U.S. Open champ Payne Stewart and British Open winner Paul Lawrie will also make the trek to Hawaii to battle Woods, the world's top-ranked player.

Woods will face the fourth-seeded Lawrie in the first round, while the second-seeded Stewart takes on the third-seeded Olazabal. The opening matches will take place on November 23, while the winners will meet the following day; as will the first-round losers, who will take part in a third-place match.

Woods, the 1997 Masters champion, will be making his third consecutive appearance at the tournament, after being selected as an alternate last year.
