Tiger Woods will add a sixth event to his rotation of tournaments to help benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation.

According to the Associated Press this tournament will be open to amateurs and stretch nearly half a year in qualifying.

"The latest venture is called the Tiger Woods Charity Playoffs. It's an amateur golf series that stretches over five months on eight golf courses, and it rewards the best players and fundraisers with a final event in Orlando, Fla., at the end of the year."

Woods noted how great the experience would be.

"My foundation provides really awesome experiences, and this event allows all golfers to play cool courses for charity," said Woods.

It's true. The tournament will be played on Merion and Congressional -- both US Open hosts in the last few years.

So how do you get in?

"Two-person teams can select a regional qualifying tournament with a registration fee ($500 per player on most courses), a $1,000 charity pledge and a goal of fundraising. The teams with the low net and gross score from each site, along with any team that raises $10,000 or more, qualify for the Charity Playoff Finals on Dec. 1-2."
"Finalists gets two days of golf, two nights in the Four Seasons Resort at Walt Disney World Resort, a private exhibition with Woods and clubhouse credentials to the World Challenge."

Sounds like fun, if you have the coin.
