Woods withdraws from Begay Challenge at Turning Stone, updated field announced


VERONA — The Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge Monday announced an updated field for the seventh annual event after Tiger Woods and Jason Dufner withdrew from the tournament taking place Aug. 27 at Turning Stone Resort Casino’s Atunyote Golf Club.

Woods and Dufner both withdrew due to injuries that require rest and recovery. Woods announced last Tuesday he would be taking a three month break from competitive golf to fully recover from a lingering back issue. Dufner is resting an aggravated neck issue that caused him to pull out of last week’s PGA Championship midway through the opening round.

While Woods will not be teeing it up at this year’s NB3F Challenge, the 14-time Major champion is still planning to be at Turning Stone and will attend several events for the Challenge sponsors and tournament VIPs.

Erik Compton, a double heart transplant who finished tied for second at this year’s U.S. Open, will be replacing Woods and Patrick Reed is substituting for Dufner to represent one of the Team USA groups.
