Tiger Woods and Notah Begay were welcomed back to Central New York this week for the NB3 Foundation Invitational.
The NB3 Invitational, a private golf tournament, was hosted by the Oneida Nation and Turning Stone Resort Casino, and held at the tribe's Tom Fazio-designed course, Atunyote Golf Club, August 30 to September 2, 2015.
The new tournament format consisted of a 36-hole, four-person team championship that was open to all amateur golfers with a USGA Handicap of 24 or fewer.
"It's amazing, I'm just so honored and so proud of Notah and everything that he's done, and everyone who's helped him: Turning Stone, Ray [Halbritter] and the Oneida Nation and everyone who's involved," Tiger said. "People have come from domestic and abroad; people have come for one reason and that's for what Notah's doing. If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't be here."
