June 10, 2024

Woods, 48, is making his first competitive start since he limped to a MC at last month’s US PGA at Valhalla following rounds of 72 and 77. But after four weeks out of PGA Tour action, Tiger Woods has rocked up nice and early for US Open preparation.Woods scouted Pinehurst No.2 his new caddie Lance Bennett last week, and he was seen out on the practice range and the course with his young cub Charlie on Sunday. Charlie has often been seen holding a golf club out in front of Tiger as he swings through, identical to the drill he used to work on with his former long-time coach Butch Harmon back in the day.Tiger claims the goal of this drill is to prevent his arms from flinging too far out to the right. Therefore the drill aims to help him connect his body and arms much tighter through the swing. Tiger Woods brought his son Charlie onto the Augusta National range this morning as his “swing coach.” Looked like he had some real feedback. Woods’ son Charlie Woods is a very accomplished golfer with a +3 handicap per the Florida State Golf Association. Charlie has chalked up two victories on the main junior circuit in his career, with his highlight win being the 2023 Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship (14-15 Division). He has also regularly excelled when competing alongside his father Tiger Woods at the annual PNC Championship. Charlie grabbed state championship honours with his school, Benjamin Boys, capturing the Florida High School Athletic Association Class A State Championship earlier this season. His mother Elin Nordegren attended the presentation of his state championship ring, alongside father Woods. According to the AJGA, Charlie has only played in one official junior event so far this season.He finished T32 at the Will Lowery Junior Championship.Charlie Woods attempted to qualify for the 2024 US Open, but came up well short in the qualifying event. Woods is also due to be playing a Monday practice round alongside Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas as he continues to ramp up his preparations for the third major of the season.The 15-time major champion has won the US Open three times – 2000, 2002 and 2008.
