Tiger Woods hosts the Chevron World Challenge kick-off and announces 18-player field for tournament at putting exhibition in Hollywood.

Golf legend Tiger Woods treated SoCal fans to a putting exhibition in Hollywood on Tuesday when the four-time champion and host helped to kick off the 2011 Chevron World Challenge.

The exhibition took place at the Central Courtyard at the Hollywood & Highline Center, on a custom-built artificial putting green designed by Back Nine Greens and was part of a kick-off promotion for the tournament, slated for Nov. 30 – Dec. 3.

After announcing the 18-player field for the upcoming golf tournament Woods made his way down to the putting green created just for the exhibition at the Central Courtyard at the Hollywood & Highland Center, where he participated in a putting contest with fans, signed autographs and posed for pictures.

After an intense match-play-style putting competition, Rick Tolentino from Ventura, Calif., took home the grand prize: walking inside the ropes with Tiger during the first round of the Chevron World Challenge. After four tied holes, Tolentino eventually lost to Tiger by one stroke on the fifth.

Fans in attendance were given tickets to attend the exclusive PGA TOUR co-sponsored event held at Sherwood Country Club, Dec. 1-4.

Woods will join other golf heavyweights in the field of 18 in Thousand Oaks at Chevron, including Steve Stricker, Jason Day, Matt Kuchar, Nick Watney and PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley, and FedExCup champion Bill Haas.
