Windermere, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tiger Woods Foundation announced on Friday that the World Challenge will move to Florida in 2014.

This year's World Challenge will be contested at Sherwood Country Club, December 5-8. Sherwood and Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., are the only two courses the event has been played on in its first 15 years.

When the event shifts to Florida, Isleworth Golf & Country Club will be the host course.

"We have a longstanding relationship with Tavistock Group and my friend, Joe Lewis, and I am thrilled to see it grow in support of our foundations," said Tiger Woods of the group that owns Isleworth. "We've enjoyed 15 amazing years in Southern California, which helped us launch our flagship Tiger Woods Learning Center. It serves as a lasting tribute to the local fans that have supported us year after year. I'm looking forward to this next phase of the World Challenge and what it can bring to Florida."

This year's 18-player field at the World Challenge includes 14 of the top 20 players in the world, along with defending champion Graeme McDowell and reigning PGA Champion Jason Dufner.
