VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -- The fourth annual Notah Begay Challenge has been postponed.

The charity event at Turning Stone Resort and Casino's Atunyote Golf Club was scheduled for July 5, but an injury to Tiger Woods has forced Begay to put it on hold. Woods has committed to play but is still recovering from injuries to his left leg.

Woods announced Wednesday that he'll miss the AT&T National next week. He says he suffered the injury at the Masters and withdrew from The Players Championship after nine holes.

Begay says an announcement of a new date and any changes to the format and playing field will come later.

Woods and Begay were college roommates at Stanford.

The event, aimed at benefiting Native American youth, has raised more than $2.4 million.
