    Tiger Woods launches scholarship fund for Sifford

    Tiger Woods has made a $10,000 donation to launch a scholarship fund at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in tribute to Charlie Sifford, who broke the US PGA Tour color barrier. Sifford, who died last month at age 92, was an African-American golf pioneer who joined the PGA Tour in 1961 after twice playing in the US Open. Woods, a former world number one who has won 14 major titles, credits Sifford with paving the way for his career. Woods' gift will launch the Sifford Fund, to create need-based scholarships to "students who demonstrate a passion for the game of golf... and who are from populations underrepresented in the golf industry," according to a posting on the school's website.
