Woods to play in Ireland pro-am next month

LIMERICK, Ireland (AP) — Tiger Woods will play his first tournament outside of the United States this year at a charity pro-am in Ireland.

Tournament officials say Woods has agreed to play July 5-6 in the event organized by Irish businessman and racehorse owner J.P. McManus.

The 36-hole pro-am will be held at Adare Manor, a former Irish Open venue, the week before the British Open at St. Andrews.

Woods said in a statement released by organizers that because of his own foundation he understands "the importance and necessity of raising funds to help deserving individuals."
