ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- If you're heading out to tomorrow's ''Notah Begay The Third Foundation Challenge," one famous golfer will not be there -- Tiger Woods.
Woods has been suffering from a sore back and bowed out of the tournament.
But the show will go on with other tour favorites like Rickie Fowler and K.J. Choi. Yesterday, Begay held his annual golf clinic for Syracuse's First Tee program at Turning Stone's Atunyote Golf Club.
He told the kids about how he got into golf, and encouraged them to be active as well. Tomorrow's NB3 Foundation Challenge will raise money for his foundation, which dedicates most of its work to combat childhood obesity through golf.
Begay said, "Well golf can help a lot of people, not just young people, if they walk the course. I mean... nine holes, is anywhere from two and a half to three miles and 18 holes is five to six of walking. You really get a lot, burn a lot of energy."
The challenge is scheduled to start at 9:15 tomorrow morning.
