Chevron World Challenge is an offseason golf tournament hosted by Tiger Woods, which takes place each December at Sherwood Country Club, a course designed by Jack Nicklaus, in Thousand Oaks, California. In its first year, 1999, it was played at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. The tournament was established as a charity fundraiser by Woods, and all the charitable funds raised go to charities with which he is associated. This is similar to many official PGA Tour events, but they usually have fields of around 150, as opposed to only 18. The first prize is $1.35 million, and last place is $170,000. Woods usually donates his prize money to his Tiger Woods Foundation.
