It’s about that time of year again. Golf superstar Tiger Woods brings his 16th Annual Tiger Jam back to Las Vegas May 16-17 at Mandalay Bay
for another year of poker, golf and celebrity sightings. This year’s event will not only bring in some big names from Hollywood it will include a special performance by Grammy-nominated pop rock band OneRepublic.
The two-day charity event combines world-class golf, high-stakes poker, gourmet cuisine and exclusive VIP experiences into a star-studded weekend benefiting Tiger Woods Foundation’s college-access programs.
“We are excited to welcome OneRepublic to Tiger Jam for the first time in our 16 years,” Woods said. “This unique and entertaining event gives so much to my foundation, helping us grow our programs and providing even more young people with a shot at college.”
Tiger Jam will kick off Friday, May 16 when poker legend Phil Hellmuth teams up with Woods to host Poker Night presented by the World Poker Tour. For a $10,000 buy-in guests will join Woods, Hellmuth, Poker Hall of Famer Doyle Brunson and other poker players for a night of poker followed by a Pre-Jam Party at Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay.
