His dad walked the 18 holes as Charlie shoots 66 at the Notah Begay III National Championships

STRAIGHT-SHOOTER: Charlie Woods, the son of Tiger Woods. 

LIKE father, like son…Tiger Woods’ son Charlie has earned his spot in the Notah Begay III National Championship in America after firing a 6-under 66 to win the 14-15 age division of the Last Chance Regional.

His dad was on his bag and walked the 18 holes, offering a positive indicator that we may see Tiger back on the Tour soon enough.

“It’s great. We just stay in our own little world,” Charlie said about having his dad caddying and with him for this win. “We take it one shot at a time. He puts me in my place.” 

This victory isn’t his first of the summer, as Charlie also won the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s Major Championship in Royal Palm Beach. He won that event by eight shots. Then Tiger Woods followed his son on a golf cart. Now, in September, he carried his son’s bag.

Charlie Woods fires a -6, 66 on Sunday at Mission Inn Resort outside of Orlando to win the Last Chance Regional and punches his ticket to the Notah Begay III National Championship. Father, Tiger Woods on the bag and walking for an added bonuses.

Charlie opened his round with three straight birdies on holes 1-3. The young Woods bogeyed the par-4 5th and par-4 7th before landing his fourth birdie on the par-3 8th. He went out in 33 strokes.

After the turn, Charlie made three straight birdies on holes 10-13. A bogey on the par-4 16th kept his competitor Kaden Puranik right in the mix with him. However, a birdie on the par-5 17th and then an 8-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th secured Woods’ win by one shot and a return to Coushatta.

“Shooting 68 last year and followed up with 66 this year, obviously, this course is great for me… You have to go shoot a low round to win this thing, and it’s not going to be given,” Charlie Woods said. “Just took it one shot at a time, don’t think too far ahead, and you just gotta keep eating. That’s it.”

Woods now progresses to the Notah Begay III National Championship in November at Koasati Pines at Coushatta Casino Resort in Louisiana.
