VERONA, N.Y. (AP) - Tiger Woods is coming to Turning Stone Casino and Resort to compete in a skins game to benefit Native American children.

Notah Begay III, Woods' college roommate at Stanford and the only full-blooded Native American on the PGA Tour, says that Woods, Mike Weir, and Camilo Villegas would compete Aug. 24 at the resort's Atunyote (uh-DUNE'-yote) Golf Club course, which also hosts the Turning Stone Resort Championship on the tour.

All proceeds will benefit the Notah Begay III Foundation, which seeks to reduce diabetes and obesity among Native American youth.

The total purse of $500,000 will remain the same as a year ago. Begay says Monday that only 3,000 tickets will be sold because of security concerns.
