Charlie Woods: PGA Tour could be on the horizon

Intrigue has surrounded the younger Woods, who has a plus-three handicap, since he began playing with his father at the family-orientated PNC Championship in 2020.

Golf fans have enjoyed watching him hit drives and hole putts, showing the same mannerisms and style his legendary parent.

At the most recent PNC Championship at the end of 2023, Charlie was asked what he admires most about his father who has continually fought against injury setbacks to carry on his famed career on the PGA Tour.

“His persistence, and how he keeps coming back after his back, which I was kind of too young to see, and now with his leg, now I can experience it with him more. I’ve learned how hard it is to come back from injury, and I thought that was pretty cool,” he said.

Woods was forced to withdraw from his most recent PGA Tour outing at the Genesis Invitational with influenza.

Fans have been keen to track the 15-year-old’s recent progress in his junior competition exploits too, particularly when his father caddied for him at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship last autumn.

Sports Illustrated have also reported that Charlie is set to make his American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) debut in March at the Will Lowery Junior Championship.
