Woods, Nicklaus team for television exhibition

July 29, 2002


— Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus will share the stage tonight as partners in the "Battle at Bighorn." Unlike the first time they met, Woods will be more than just a warmup act.

They will play against Lee Trevino and Sergio Garcia in an 18-hole best-ball match at 7 p.m. CDT on ABC Sports, the fourth version of the ultimate made-for-TV event that puts golf in prime time and allows the game to showcase its biggest star.

Woods first met Nicklaus during a "Friends of Golf" exhibition 10 years ago at Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles, where Nicklaus was putting on a clinic.
