Charlie Woods continues to impress the golf world with his growth. He emerged victorious after two rounds of the SFPGA's West Coast High School tournament at Cypress Woods Golf and Country Club in Neplas on Sept. 30.

Aiden Miller settled for second place in a two-tie with Tyler Bruneau while Luke Wise finished in fourth place.

Last month, Charlie won the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship after playing a low round. He played the final round of 68 to clinch the competition when his father Tiger Woods was on his bag.

Jr. Woods made nine birdies and two bogeys to score his career-best score. About his performance at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship, Charlie said (via SB Nation):

"Shooting 68 last year and followed up with 66 this year, obviously, this course is great for me.
"You have to go shoot a low round to win this thing, and it’s not going to be given. Just took it one shot at a time, don’t think too far ahead, and you just gotta keep eating. That’s it."

"We take it one shot at a time" - Charlie Woods opens up about playing with his father

Tiger Woods has not been competing in professional events but was spotted accompanying his son during his matches. The 15-time major champion was a caddie of Charlie Woods at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship and helped him with his game.

During a conversation with the media, Charlie spoke about playing with his father:

"We take it one shot at a time. (He) puts me in my place" from time to time. "I’ll talk about the next tee shot and he’s like, ‘No. This is the shot we’re going to focus on. Focus up. This is what we’re gonna do.'

Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods played together at last year's PNC championship, and fans have high hopes that the father-son duo will again compete at the tournament in 2023.
