VERONA, N.Y. (AP) - Tiger Woods is returning again to play a charity event hosted by Notah Begay III, his former teammate at Stanford.

Woods will play in the NB3 Foundation Challenge in late August at Turning Stone Resort's Atunyote Golf Club. It'll be his fourth appearance in the six years Begay has hosted the event, a fundraiser that targets health issues facing Native Americans.

Begay, who started a new line of work this season as a full-time member of the broadcast team for NBC Sports and Golf Channel, says the event has raised more than $4 million in five years. He's a Navajo and the only full-blooded American Indian to play on the PGA Tour.

Lee Westwood, K.J. Choi and Rickie Fowler are among the field of 12 who will be divided into three teams in a combined best-ball format.
