Tiger Woods announces new N.C. golf course

Story body

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. (AP) -- Tiger Woods announced today that he plans to design his first American golf course in the North Carolina mountains.

The course will be called The Cliffs at High Carolina and will only allow walkers, no carts. Woods says that was a key part of the deal.

Woods says he plans on letting the scenic land near Asheville dictate the layout. He hopes it offers a fair test and gives golfers a chance to connect with nature.

Woods says he will select course projects that fit in his crowded schedule as a competitor and father.

But he pledges that he will come to the site as often as necessary to get the job done right. He says, "As you know, I'm kind of a perfectionist."

Woods won his 13th major at the PGA Championship last weekend.
