Tiger Woods' son Charlie Woods shot a 6-under 66 on Sunday, September 24, to win the Notah Begay III JGNC Regional in the 14–15 age category. He finished at 7-under after 36 holes, defeating Kaden Puranik by a single stroke.
Charlie had his dad by his side throughout the event as Tiger took on caddying duties at the Mission Inn Resort for his son. The 14-year-old emerging golfer shot a 1-under 71 on Saturday, which included three birdies and two bogeys.
The following day, he sank nine birdies, including two sets of three consecutive birdies in his 66. The eight-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole helped him secure a victory over Puranik at the Florida Regional for the Notah Begay III National Championship.
With this win, Charlie has secured a spot in the main event of the Notah Begay III National Championship.
Fans online celebrated the young golfer's victory, with many expressing that Charlie Woods was fortunate to receive golf advice directly from Tiger himself.
