Fans on social media have given their views on Charlie Woods' attempt to qualify for the US Open 2024.

A recent report by SI states that Jr. Woods has set his sights on competing in the Major in 2024 and will participate in a pre-qualifying round of the US Open on Thursday, April 25.

The pre-qualifying round features a field of 80 players who will tee off in the first pre-qualifying stage for the US Open 2024 at the Legacy Golf and Tennis Club in Port St. Lucia, Florida.

Twelegion recently shared the news on its X (formerly Twitter) account with the caption:

"JUST IN: Charlie Woods will attempt to qualify for the U.S Open at Pinehurst, and is scheduled to tee it up on Thursday at a local qualifying site in South Florida. (Via @SI_Golf)"

Fans took to the comments section to take a jibe at the young golfer, suggesting it might not be a good idea.

"This is a really bad idea," wrote a fan.
"Will he break 90?" commented another fan.
"Wow, not a chance," commented another user.

It's important to note that Charlie Woods previously attempted to qualify for the Cognizant Classic, a PGA Tour event, in February. He competed in the first round of pre-qualifying but failed to secure a spot in the field after shooting a round of 16-over.

Woods struggled early on, with two bogeys in the first four holes followed by a double bogey on the fifth. He recorded six pars, two bogeys, and a double bogey on the back nine to score 86, which was insufficient to earn him a spot in the Monday qualifiers.

Charlie Woods is now attempting to join the Major's field by playing in the first round of the pre-qualifying event. He is scheduled to tee off at 8:18 a.m. ET on Thursday.
