Tiger Woods is moving his World Challenge from his old home in California to his old course in Florida, Isleworth Country Club in Windermere, near Orlando.

Woods said Friday that his charity event, which attracts a world-class field without being part of any tour, will move in December 2014.

Isleworth is where he honed his game from 1996 until moving to South Florida two years ago. It is among several golf communities owned by the Tavistock Group, which will share the tournament proceeds with the Tiger Woods Foundation. "We have a long-standing relationship with Tavistock Group and my friend Joe Lewis, and I am thrilled to see it grow in support of our foundations," Woods said.

The World Challenge has been at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., since 2001. It was played its first two years in Arizona.

The World Challenge is a four-day event that NBC has televised. It began offering world ranking points in 2010 by developing criteria for the field and limiting its two sponsor exemptions to the top 50 in the world. This year's event is Dec. 5-8 at Sherwood. The 18-player field has 14 players from the top 20.

World Cup: Denmark's Thomas Bjorn shot 3-under 68 for a one-stroke lead at 8-under 134 after two rounds in Melbourne, Australia. First-round leader Kevin Streelman (69) was one back. He and Matt Kuchar (68, 3 under overall) led the team standings for the United States, three stroke better than Denmark.

LPGA: First-round leader Sandra Gal shot 3-under 69 for a three-shot lead at 11-under 133 over Sun Young Yoo (68) in the season-ending LPGA Titleholders in Naples. Tampa's Cindy LaCrosse (76) was 1 over and Seminole's Brittany Lincicome (79) 3 over. Lydia Ko, 16 and making her pro debut, had 71 and was 2 under. The winner gets $700,000, the largest payoff in women's golf. … The tour announced a 2014 schedule that adds four tournaments to give it 32 and offers an average purse of $1.75 million. The total prize money is back over $50 million, at $56.3 million. The season starts Jan. 23-26 with the Pure Silk Bahamas Classic.
