The Presidents’ Cup was on the weekend, but Tiger Woods had more important work to do. Woods served as the caddy for his son Charlie Woods, who scored a career-best 68 (4-younger in the last round) in the final round of the Notah Begay III National Junior Golf Championship in Howie-in-the-Hills, Florida. Sunday.
Charlie’s career best finish placed him fourth in the Boys 12–13 division. according to Cameron Jordan of Golfweek.
“Dad told me to be patient. I just played golf,” Charlie said in an interview with Golfweek.
Charlie entered the day with a lead of 1 over par but ended up finishing strong. The 13-year-old finished Sunday’s final round with a pair of birdies and heads on the 14th par 5 hole. In fact, Charlie almost hit an albatross on the 14th hole, but the ball just came off the cup.
“When I hit (the approach), I knew it was good,” Charlie added. “When it started to seep down, I knew it would be close, but not that close.”
During the PNC Championship in December 2021, Charlie played alongside Tiger and even showed similar mannerisms to his legendary father. While he certainly has a long way to go, it’s clear that sport is in his blood.
