Strong field assembled for Target Challenge

Tournament host Tiger Woods has announced a strong field featuring 11 of the world's top 20 players for the year-ending Target World Challenge.

Woods heads a 16-man line-up that also includes fellow Americans Jim Furyk (ranked third) and Steve Stricker (fourth) and British Open champion Padraig Harrington of Ireland (seventh).

"I truly appreciate the support of my fellow golfers and friends," world number one Woods said during a teleconference on Monday.

"The player and fan support is the reason why this event is the success that it has become as we enter our ninth year.

"All the players have committed to play and this is going to be another fantastic event," added Woods, who will be appearing in his fifth Presidents Cup for the U.S. against the Internationals at Royal Montreal Golf Club this week.

"I'm really looking forward to competing and hopefully being able to win the tournament. I take great pride in having an opportunity to play in Southern California and raise funds for kids of my foundation."

The $5.75 million Target World Challenge will be held at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California from Dec. 13-16.

Proceeds from the invitational event go towards Tiger Woods Foundation projects and the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim.

Woods won last year's tournament by four shots to clinch his 11th title of 2006.

The full field is: Woods, Furyk, Stricker, Harrington, Rory Sabbatini, K.J. Choi, Vijay Singh, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Zach Johnson, Luke Donald, Niclas Fasth, Paul Casey, Mark Calcavecchia, Davis Love III and Fred Couples.
