Dand such a stick… such a splinter. Charlie Woods, the son of Tiger Woods, signed his best card in his so far short career in the world of golf. I finished with 68 strokesfour under par, the final round of the Notah Begay III National Junior Golf Championship at Mission Inn Resort in Howey. Tiger Woods closely watched the result achieved by his 13-year-old son, as he it was his caddy.
Charlie Woods finished the first nine holes with a shot under par, the result of two birdies (holes 1 and 8) and a bogey (hole 3). In his last nine holes, he had two birdies (10 and 13) and an eagle (hole 14) plus a bogey on the 18th. On the par 5 of the 14th hole, his ball even grazed the hole and an albatross was about to sign if it enters in two blows. “When it hit, I knew it was good. When it started rolling, I knew it was going to be close, but not that close,” Tiger’s son analyzed.
Woods had completed the first round, on Saturday, in 80 shots (eight over par for the course). In the end he finished at 148 (four over par) to be fourth, tied with two other players, in the 12-13 age category.
“Dad told me to be patient and just play golf steadily. I couldn’t have done it without him. guided me on the right pathCharlie said, about caddying with his dad.
