The 2020 PNC Championship is currently underway. However, the format for this tournament is unlike the norm of single golfer-stroke play rule. The PNC is a father-son best ball format. Among the star studded line up of twenty duos is fifteen-time major winner: Tiger Woods and eleven-year-old son, Charlie.
For one of the first times in Tiger’s career, he was not the forefront of attention. Charlie usurped much attention throughout the around the first round. The team shot a ten under par round of sixty-two in round one on Friday. With this score, Team Woods is tied for sixth place going into the final round of this two day tournament.
After the end of round one, the leaderboard stands: Team Kuchar at 14 under par, Team Singh at 12 under par, and Team Norman at 11 under par. Although, Tiger and Charlie may not hold a top spot at the end of the first round, people are more impressed by his ability to keep up with his father. Some holes, he didn’t even need any assistance from the eighty-two time PGA tour event winner. On the third hole at the Ritz Carlton Golf Club, Charlie made eagle (3) using his own approach shot and putt.
Charlie Woods is the real deal. His swing throughout the whole round was pure and consistent. His putting might need a little work as he didn’t make a putt outside of 10 feet all day but he is only eleven, he’s got time to improve.
For my prediction of tomorrow’s round. I’m expecting a lot of grinding, many hole-outs, made puts, long drives, and a podium appearance from the Woods’ duo. This is definitely not the last time we will be hearing about Charlie Woods.
