Tiger Woods sits down with Earl Woods Scholar Grace Lee

When the world’s best tee it up at Riviera each year, there is an opportunity for one PGA TOUR professional to write his name in the record books. But the opportunities provided by the Genesis Open go far beyond the golf course. While golf’s biggest stars head to Los Angeles each February, the impact of their visit can be seen year-round as proceeds from the Genesis Open benefit TGR Foundation and its education and college-access programs.

TGR Foundation empowers students to pursue their passions through education. Yeon Jin (Grace) Lee is one of many students the foundation has helped to empower. A graduate of the Earl Woods Scholar Program, Grace earned a degree in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley. After working at NASA, Grace decided to pursue her passion of filmmaking and is currently a graduate student in the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

During the 2019 Genesis Open, Grace sat down with, Genesis Open tournament host and TGR Foundation founder, Tiger Woods to talk about the opportunities the tournament provides for students in the Earl Woods Scholar Program.
