The Golf World Is Amazed At How Good 12-Year-Old Charlie Woods Is

The Golf World Is Amazed At How Good 12-Year-Old Charlie Woods Is

Tiger Woods and his son Charlie lit up the PNC Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando Florida over the weekend.

The PNC Championship,  also known as the Father/Son Challenge, is played in a scramble format over 36 holes. The pro or ex-pro on the team must have won either a major championship or The Players’ Championship to be eligible for an invitation.

The overarching storyline heading into the tournament was the return of Tiger Woods following a major car accident less than a year ago. But, by the end of Sunday, the performance of Charlie Woods was the main headline grabber.

The pair finished in second place on 25 under par, two strokes behind the Daly duo of father and son John and John II. The Woods' also set a tournament record for most consecutive birdies when they racked off 11 in a row during the final round.

Charlie Woods displayed some of the outstanding qualities that made Tiger the greatest golfer of all time. Not just his skills with the club, which every pro possesses, but the ability to stay in the zone when distractions are all around you.

The Return of Tiger Woods

Many people believed we would never see Tiger Woods play tournament golf again following his accident, which came after years of injury problems. However, he has spent his career defying the odds, and while his swing looked stiff and slow, it gives hope that we will see him in a major once more.

The victors over the weekend must not be forgotten either. The ever popular John Daly and his son Little John played magnificently. John Daly snr. with a cigarette in hand and sporting a Trump golf shirt going down the final fairway, was true to form to say the least.

There was some Irish interest as well with Padraig Harrington and his son Paddy competing. They finished tied for 16th out of 20 teams, with a respectable score of 16 under par.
