"Kid Rock is a great performer. We welcomed him to the Tiger Jam stage a few years ago, and we're excited he'll be back to headline our 15th Tiger Jam," Woods said in a statement recently. "This event is so important to my foundation, helping us grow our programs and provide even more young people with the chance to attend college." Over the course of his career Kid Rock has sold more than 26 million albums and reached the highest levels of rock superstardom.
Cascata is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, and annually hosts Tiger's private clinic where participants are allowed to ask Woods questions. He also gives a clinic.
