Tiger in town

Posted By on Tue, May 30, 2006 at 10:32 AM


First Tee kids got front row seats Monday when Tiger Woods put on a demonstration at Alotian Club as part of a charitable golf event to raise $1 million for five charities that were favorites of the late Jackson T. Stephens -- First Tee, UALR, UAMS, the Arkansas Arts Center and Episcopal Collegiate School. Alotian is the club created by Stephens' son, Warren, on hills overlooking Lake Maumelle.

Jim Harris, who'll be writing more about Woods' appearance in this week's Times, said Woods, though slowed by a cold, put on a good show. He was to play a few holes later at Alotian. He hits the little white ball a ways, we hear.

This is the first of five annual charity events at the club, each to feature a top golf pro as a drawing card.
