Vernon, NY (WIBX) – Notah Begay III, a four-time PGA Tour winner, today announced that the fourth annual Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation Challenge, slated to take place on Tuesday, July 5 at Turning Stone Resort’s Atunyote Golf Club on Oneida Indian Nation lands near Vernon, N.Y., has been postponed.

An announcement addressing a new event date, and any changes to the format and playing field, will come at a later date.

Begay and Foundation executives made the decision to postpone the NB3 Foundation Challenge in order to provide Tiger Woods, who has committed to play but is still recovering from injuries, the best opportunity to participate.

“I’m honored that Tiger agreed to participate in this year’s event,” said Begay. “He believes in our mission and is a huge draw for fans. Obviously, we want Tiger to be a part of the event, and are hopeful that the postponement will give him the opportunity to heal and be ready when we do tee it up.”

The friendship between Begay and Woods dates back to Stanford University, where Begay, a three-time All-American, and Woods were teammates and roommates in the mid-1990s.

“While I am disappointed that I will not be able to participate in Notah’s Foundation Challenge in July, I certainly hope to reschedule,” said Woods. “Notah is a great personal friend of mine and his Foundation does wonderful things. It is a privilege to help.

The NB3 Foundation will continue to work with its partner, the Oneida Indian Nation, to determine the best available new date to host the event, which has raised more than $2.4 million through its first three years at Atunyote.
