Tiger Woods Announces His First U.S. Design Course

Tiger Woods has announced that he plans to design his first American course in the mountains of North Carolina.

The world's top-ranked golfer launched Tiger Woods Design last year and took on a project in Dubai for his first golf course.

The Cliffs at High Carolina will be located near Asheville, and will allow only walkers. That's something Woods says was key to the deal.

The 31-year-old golfer says he'll gradually grow his design business, selecting projects that fit within his crowded schedule.

Woods' layout will join a community of golf courses that includes three designed by Jack Nicklaus. Woods, who won his 13th major at last week's PGA Championship, is chasing Nicklaus' record of 18.
