Look out, world. Charlie Woods is pretty good at this whole golf thing.
While the Presidents Cup was going on in Charlotte, North Carolina, the son of Tiger Woods shot a 4-under round of 68 on Sunday during the final round of the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida. And his dad was on the bag to see Charlie’s career-low round.
Charlie went out in 1 over, but he played well on his back nine, recording two birdies and an eagle on the par-5 14th hole to come home in 3-under 34 and shoot 68. His approach shot lipped out for albatross on the 14th.
“When I hit (the approach), I knew it was good,” Charlie said. “When it started trickling down, I knew it was going to be close, but not that close.”
At the PNC Championship, Charlie has shown his playing capabilities alongside Tiger. But it seems as if he’s making a name for himself, too.
“Dad told me to stay patient. I just played steady golf,” Charlie said.
Charlie finished T-4 in the Boys 12-13 division. He finished 4 over for 36 holes.
