Charlie Woods, the 15-year-old son of golfing legend Tiger Woods, saw his aspirations of qualifying for the upcoming PGA Tour event in Palm Beach Gardens thwarted. Despite high hopes, his performance in a pre-qualifying event on Thursday resulted in a disappointing 16-over-par 86.

Charlie aimed to secure a spot in the US PGA Tour Cognizant Classic but fell short during his round at Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. Commencing his play in an early group, Charlie initially struggled, finding himself four over par after the first five holes.

Unfortunately, a disastrous 12 strokes at the par-four seventh hole severely affected his chances of advancement. Despite this setback, Charlie exhibited resilience, achieving par on the following six holes. However, a double bogey on the par-3 14th and subsequent bogeys on the 15th and 16th dashed any hopes of progress.

Woods played with Olin Browne Jr, who qualified for the US Open last summer in Los Angeles. The son of three-time PGA Tour winner Olin Browne shot 72.

Woods ran into trouble early with a pair of bogeys and a double bogey on the par-5 fifth hole. But it was on the seventh, with water down the right side and water behind the green, where the teen’s hopes ended for good. He made a 12.

Woods made the turn in 47 and had two bogeys and a double bogey on the back for an 86. The leading score when he finished was 65. Scores are not updated until a player finishes. The pre-qualifier comes with a $250 entry fee for players without tour status.

His plight was shared by three other players in the early groups, who also struggled, each accumulating over 11 over-par strokes in their respective rounds. For him, the event served as a valuable learning experience, highlighting the challenges and unpredictability of competitive golf at the professional level.

Reflecting on Woods’s journey, the familial ties to golfing excellence are worth noting. Tiger Woods himself embarked on his professional career at a young age, making his debut on the US PGA Tour as a 16-year-old amateur at Riviera Country Club in 1992. Furthermore, Charlie has had the privilege of teeing off alongside his father in the prestigious PNC Championship exhibition tournament for the past four years.

Charlie’s passion for golf has been evident in his participation in various tournaments, including last year’s Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship. Despite his young age, Charlie’s dedication to the sport is palpable, with his father even serving as his caddie during all three rounds of the competition.

While Charlie’s recent setback may have dashed his immediate hopes of qualifying for the PGA Tour event, it serves as a valuable learning experience and a testament to the challenges inherent in competitive golf. With determination and continued practice, Charlie has the potential to follow in his father’s footsteps and carve out his own legacy in the world of golf.
