With his dad by his side Charlie, 11, Tiger Woods’ son, wins junior golf tournament


Tiger Woods’ 11-year-old son has won a Junior Golf Tournament in Florida, with his dad by his side.

Charlie who played at a US Kids Golf-sanctioned event at Hammock Creek Golf Club easily dominated his opponents and topped the leaderboard.

Yahoo Sports and U.S. Kids Golf’s website reported that Charlie shot a three-under 33 across nine holes in the boys’ 11-year-old division. He finished with no bogeys and three birdies. The proud father who was there to support his son, helped him carry his golf clubs through the course.

“He’s starting to understand how to play. He’s asking me the right questions,” Tiger said. “I’ve kept it competitive with his par, so it’s been just an absolute blast to go out there and just, you know, be with him.”

The father of two also said that he pays close attention to Charlie’s skills out on the golf course — and is learning a thing or two from him.

“I analyze his swing all the time,” he said. “I wish I could rotate like that and turn my head like that and do some of those positions, but those days are long gone, and I have to relive them through him.”

Tiger Woods shares Charlie and daughter Sam, 13, with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren, whom he split from in 2010 after being enmeshed in a sex scandal in which dozens of women came forward and alleged that they had sexual encounters with him.
