Charlie Woods, the 14-year-old son of golfing legend Tiger Woods, continues to make waves in the golfing world. With his father by his side as his caddie, Charlie secured a spot in the Notah Begay III National Championship after an impressive performance in the Last Chance Regional tournament.
Finishing with a score of 6-under 66, Charlie dominated the 14-15 age division, showcasing his incredible talent and potential. When asked about his dad caddying for him, Charlie expressed his gratitude, saying, “It’s great. We just stay in our own little world. We take it one shot at a time.”
The young golfer went on to mention how his father helps him stay focused during each shot, emphasizing the importance of being in the present moment. Tiger Woods, being a seasoned professional himself, understands the challenges and pressures of the game, and his guidance seems to be paying off for his son.
The Notah Begay III National Championship is set to take place from November 4-6 at Koasati Pines at Coushatta Casino Resort in Louisiana. The tournament holds special significance as Notah Begay III, a former PGA Tour pro and Tiger’s teammate at Stanford University, organizes it.
Charlie’s stellar performance at the Last Chance Regional event was marked by birdies on the first three holes and three consecutive birdies at the start of the back nine. He sealed the win with an impressive eight-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. Reflecting on his success, Charlie credited his ability to stay focused and take it one shot at a time.
The presence of Tiger Woods on the course alongside his son was a special moment not only for the duo but also for those fortunate enough to witness it. Shane Croft, whose son Chase played alongside Charlie, described the experience as “EPIC” and “unreal” in a post on Instagram. Being able to spend four hours with Charlie and Tiger left a lasting impact on him and his family.
The Notah Begay III National Championship promises to be an exciting event, showcasing the talents of young golfers and providing a platform for them to excel. With Charlie Woods’ rising star power and the guidance of his father, fans and golf enthusiasts eagerly anticipate his performance in the upcoming tournament.
Whether Charlie follows in his father’s footsteps and reaches the heights of golfing greatness remains to be seen. However, one thing is clear – his passion for the game, his dedication, and the support of his father will continue to shape his promising golfing career.
