Tiger Woods is all set to make his comeback this week. He will compete at the PNC Championship, a father-son/father-daughter event. Moreover, Tiger will be playing his first-ever competitive golf event since the horrifying solo car crash in February 2021. However, before speculations rise, Tiger has already made it clear that he is still far from a return to the PGA Tour.

Given the nature of the PNC Championship, his son Charlie Woods will probably hit the tee shots, while Tiger will just go ahead with his wedges and putter. Moreover, the fifteen-time major championship winner will mostly use a golf cart, as he is yet to recover fully from his injury.

Hence, he will be banking on Charlie to show his magic this week. Notably, in an interview with Golf Digest, Tiger recently revealed Charlie’s progress as a golfer and the lowest score he has ever scored.

Tiger Woods talked to the media for the first time a couple of weeks ago, at the Hero World Challenge, as the host of the event. Notably, when the interviewer asked him about young Charlie’s best round, Tiger revealed that he has shot this summer.

“He has broken 80 for the first time at Medalist,” revealed Tiger. “From the tees further back. I wasn’t able to play with him because I wasn’t able to get out. He had a growth spurt, so we went one tee marker back. And he shot his lowest score ever.”

It is incredible to know that despite being just 12, Charlie has already broken 80. Moreover, he did it from the back tees, which makes it even more glorious. Not to forget, Tiger and Charlie had competed in the PNC Championship last year. 

Even though they did not win the event, they stole the show, especially Charlie. His shots, swing, follow-through, club twirl, among other heroics, were a replica of his father. So hopefully, even this year, team Woods will put on a great show and treat fans to some incredible golf.
