Tiger Woods recently made his comeback at the 2021 PNC Championship. This was his first-ever event since the horrific solo car crash earlier this year. Notably, he teamed up with his son Charlie Woods and displayed some insane golfing skills in the 36 hole family event. Team Woods finished just two strokes behind the lead.

Moreover, Tiger and Charlie carded 57 on the final day, to finish with a score of -25 and were runners-up for the 2021 PNC Championship. Even team Daly carded 57 on Sunday, but since they had a brilliant round one, they finished -27 and eventually won the event.

Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods teed off with team Kuchar on Sunday. Team Woods had an incredible final round as they birdied 11 consecutive holes. They carded 13 birdies and an eagle in total and set the tournament record. Meanwhile, Tiger looked in brilliant touch throughout the final round. He was hitting darts with his irons and drained clutch putts.

Notably, in a post-round interview, a reporter informed Tiger that Kuchar said his game is PGA Tour ready now. However, Woods didn’t agree with this and said, “No, no, no, no. I totally disagree. I am not at that level, and I can’t compete against these guys right now, no. It’s going to take a lot of work to get where I feel like I can compete with these guys and be at a high level.”

Truth be told, even though Tiger was incredible with his game, he was struggling a little with his right leg. He was also limping slightly in the pro-am event and round one of the PNC Championship. But still, his game was up to the mark, and we got to see vintage Tiger on Sunday.

However, the only thing that is holding him back is his inability to walk for 72 holes. Moreover, he has even clarified that he won’t be taking a cart for a Tour event. Hence, Tiger wants to recover completely and then make a comeback on the PGA Tour.
