Charlie Woods seems to possess a number of the same attributes as his father, whether it’s enjoying a little trash talk on the golf course or rising to the occasion in big moments.
And much like Tiger Woods seemed to do with ease while amassing 82 PGA Tour victories and 15 major titles, Charlie Woods stepped up and buried an important putt at an opportune time during the recent Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship.
Charlie captured the title in the 14-15 age division at Mission Inn in Orlando by posting a final-round 66, his career-best in competition. And just like his dad has done so many times, Woods dropped a testy birdie putt on the final hole to secure the victory.
After firing a 71 during the opening round, Woods rolled in nine birdies during the second round. He said having his father as his caddie helps to keep him grounded during these events.
“We just stay in our own little world. We take it one shot at a time. He puts me in my place,” Charlie said of having Tiger on the bag.
