NORTON, Mass. -- The Tiger Woods Foundation has taken over the management and operational responsibilities of the Deutsche Bank Championship, held over Labor Day weekend at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass. The Foundation, which supports underserved students through educational programs designed to help them get to college, has been the primary beneficiary of the event since 2003, but will now handle the day-to-day operations of New England's premier PGA TOUR Playoff event.
"The Deutsche Bank Championship has seen tremendous success thanks to the Boston community, the incredible fans and dedicated sponsors, and we are excited to play a bigger role in its management moving forward," said Greg McLaughlin, president and CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation. "Deutsche Bank has been a great partner of the Foundation over the past 10 years, and we plan to bring fans another first-class golf tournament this Labor Day weekend."
"We are pleased to have the Tiger Woods Foundation as a partner to manage the Deutsche Bank Championship," said Jacques Brand, Deutsche Bank's CEO of North America. "Their professionalism and success running other tournaments will certainly enhance the fan's experience at the already fantastic Championship."
Deutsche Bank has been the title sponsor since the tournament's debut at TPC Boston in 2003. Since its inception, the Championship has generated more than $24 million for the Tiger Woods Foundation and local New England charities.
In addition to the Deutsche Bank Championship, the Tiger Woods Foundation runs and operates two golf tournaments, the AT&T National, a PGA TOUR event held at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., and the World Challenge held at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
