The 2011 Tiger Jam once again provided a VIP weekend for guests including an exclusive clinic and Q&A with Tiger Woods, John Cook and surprise guest Darius Rucker; an evening reception; live and silent auctions featuring one-of-a-kind luxury items; and a rocking concert from GRAMMY Award-winners Urban and Mayer. Joining Tiger Woods onstage at the reception was Tamika Mitchell, a third-year Earl Woods Scholar, who spoke of her experience with the Tiger Woods Foundation and shared her story of achievement.

Near the end of Mayer’s set, Urban joined him onstage for a surprise performance of “Cripple Creek.” Immediately following, Urban hyped up the crowd as he performed his hit songs for more than 6,200 people.
