Las Vegas, Nevada (February 3, 2011)–Tiger Woods' ties to Las Vegas are very deep from when he played here as a junior to when he nearly came to UNLV to when he won his first ever PGA Tour event to when he annually held Tiger Jam here. And, as we all now know, there were a few other deep times to Las Vegas, but that is water under the bridge by now and the Tiger Woods Foundation has announced that Tiger Jam is returning to Las Vegas at the end of April. And Las Vegas golf course Cascata will once again serve as a host course where Tiger will hold a clinic and sponsors will gather to play. —By Brian Hurlburt.
According to an official press release, on April 30, two Grammy Award-winning artists will take the stage at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas for the 2011 Tiger Jam, an exclusive, VIP concert event. Keith Urban and John Mayer will join forces for an exciting evening that benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. "I'm thrilled these two talented musicians are joining us for Tiger Jam," event host Tiger Woods said in the release. "We have had so much success with this event over the last 13 years, raising more than $12 million for programs of my Foundation, and we are excited to continue that tradition.
Cascata is one of the best Las Vegas golf courses and has received 29 out of 30 stars as rated by ZAGAT. This Las Vegas golf course was designed by Rees Jones, and is open to all Las Vegas golfers whether playing in the Tiger Jam or not.

In 2010, the Tiger Jam was canceled due to the turmoil in Woods personal life. With things getting back to normal, the decision was made to come back to Las Vegas.
Saturday evening's highlights will include top-notch epicurean fare and exclusive live and silent auctions featuring one-of-a-kind luxury items. Following the dinner and auctions, the celebration will progress to the Mandalay Bay Events Center stage, where Woods will welcome Grammy Award-winners Urban and Mayer for an exciting performance. The event is the place to be seen for celebrities with those making appearances in the past including Ben Roethlisberger, Natalie Gulbis, Charley Hoffman, Kevin James, Pamela Anderson, Charles Barkley, and Michael Jordan, among others.
