Charlie Woods, the 14-year-old son of golf legend Tiger Woods, continues to make waves in the golfing world. The freshman prodigy recently led his high school team, The Benjamin School in Palm Beach Gardens, to victory at the West Coast High School Tournament, hosted by the South Florida PGA Junior Tour.
Charlie’s individual performance at the tournament was outstanding, solidifying his reputation as a rising star. The tournament took place over two days at the Cypress Woods Golf and Country Club in Naples, where Charlie emerged as the champion. His skill and composure on the course stood out, earning him the title of the tournament’s individual champion.
Not only did Charlie shine, but his teammates also delivered strong performances. Seniors Aiden Miller and Tyler Bruneau tied for second place, while Luke Wise finished in fourth. Travis Robertson, another Benjamin senior, started well but unfortunately had to withdraw. With a strong team and Charlie’s exceptional talent, the Benjamin School boys golf team is now on track for what could be their fourth state championship.
Charlie’s recent success builds upon his impressive performance at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship Last Chance Florida Regional. He won the junior regional qualifier in the boys 14-15 age division, securing a spot in the national championship in Coushatta, Louisiana, which is set to begin on November 4th. However, Charlie and his teammates will first compete in the Florida High School Athletic Association golf state championships on the same day.
Although Charlie has been accompanied by his father Tiger as his caddy in previous tournaments, high school rules and regulations might prevent Tiger from playing that role during Charlie’s run at the varsity state championship in November. Nonetheless, Charlie’s talent and experience make him a valuable asset to the team, and the Benjamin School Buccaneers can be confident in their chances with this “rookie” sensation.
Speaking about the recent tournament at the Mission Inn Resort’s El Campeon course, Charlie expressed his positivity: “This course is great for me.” His enthusiasm and confidence bode well for his upcoming competitions, and it’s clear that Charlie is finding his stride in the game of golf.
Golf fans and enthusiasts should keep a close eye on Charlie Woods as he continues to make a name for himself on the golf course. With his natural talent and the guidance of his father, Tiger Woods, it seems that Charlie has a bright future ahead of him in the world of golf.
