Former world no. 1, Tiger Woods returned to the golf course, but as a caddie. The 15-time major champion caddied for his son, Charles Woods, in the Junior Golf National Championship.
Charles Woods is a junior golf player who is determined to replicate the success of his father. The 13-year-old was recently teeing off at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship in Florida. After a decent performance, the prodigal golfer managed to place 4th in the tournament standings.
The last rounds of the tournament had huge attention from the golf world, as Tiger Woods, arguably the greatest golfer ever, arrived on the course to caddie for his son. “Dad told me to stay patient, I played consistently,” stated Charles in an interview after the conclusion of the tournament.
“That was awesome. I couldn’t have done it without him. Like some shots, I would have been so off. But he steered me on the right course,” he added.
The sight of Woods brought joy to many as people do not get to watch him play much these days. His last appearance in a professional tournament was back in July in the Open Championship. However, it is expected to watch him play alongside his son soon enough. The father-son duo is predicted to take part in the PNC Championship once again this year. PNC Championship is a 36-hole team event where major champions pair up with their sons, daughters, or parents. The 2022 PNC Championship is scheduled to start on the 15th of December
