Charlie, 11, scored eagle in hole 3, par5, and almost did it again in hole 16 on the first day of his matchday with father Tiger at the PNC Championship on December 19.
Hole 3, 529 yards long. Charlie from the private tee box brought the ball to the fairway. Due to being in a good place, Woods didn’t need to play from the top of the hole. 175 yards from the target, the youngest of the American superstar swung his wooden stick, raised the ball 1.2 meters from the hole and scored an eagle.
At hole 16, par4, Charlie used the number 7 iron in the second, and the birdie was in the range of three hands. In addition, the 11-year-old boy was a birdie in hole 9. For Woods, he did not need to kick 13, 14 and 18. Both father and son only bogey holes 15.
They ended the opening day at -8, standing T6, while the top of table -14 belonged to father and son Kuchar, Matt and Cameron (13 years old).
PNC Championship consists of 36 holes, in a scramble format. In this pattern, two team members both tee off, then choose the best position for the next shot until the hole is closed.
The prize gathered 20 major champions, banned from the field audience and was broadcast live on NBC’s system, including Golf Channel. The event recognizes the diversity of the composition of the match, from father – son, father – daughter, grandfather – nephew, to daughter with father or son with father.
For the first time, Charlie was not afraid to tease his opponent. On the opening day of the tournament, the Woods fought with the group of PGA Tour stars Justin Thomas and Mike – his father.
At hole 13, par4 sharply turned left, Charlie played straight down the fairway and Woods was free. The boy approached his ball but suddenly returned to Mike’s ball position, then into the bunker. Charlie put a piece of paper beside the ball and calmly went to separate place.
Thomas came to check and said: “Charlie texted this dad”. The piece of paper read “This hole is straight out. That’s a tie”. It was Mike who put that message when Charlie hit the jungle at the pro-am content review (professional with amateur) on December 18. Receiving the piece of paper, Mike exclaimed: “It’s expensive”.
“Like Woods. Unexpectedly Charlie kept it and returned it when my dad fell in the sand. It’s a bit of retribution. It’s fun,” Thomas commented. He often competes with Charlie to play the ball because they are close together in South Florida. Mike specializes in golf coaching, occasionally mentoring Charlie.
After 18 holes of PNC Championship with a prize fund of 1.085 million USD, Team Thomas stood T6 next to Woods. The tournament was born in 1995 and must win the major or The Players Championship. Last year, Bernhard Langer and his son Jason won at -24, earning $ 200,000.
