Charlie shot rounds of 78 and 76 — helping his team secure its fourth state golf title. The event occurred at Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-In-The-Hills, Florida. The high schooler had the fourth-best score of his five-strong team, according to CNN. He came in 26th overall.
Woods was in attendance to support his son. The 15-time major winner never won a high school state title while he was a student at Western High School. The California Interscholastic Federation did not hold state championships at the time. In 1991, Woods became the youngest US Junior Amateur at 15 years old before eventually becoming the golf star he is today, according to the BBC.
Charlie has previously spoken about his relationship with his father and the advice he has received.
“We just stay in our own little world,” he had said. “I’ll talk about the next tee shot, and he’s like, ‘No. This is the shot we’re going to focus on. Focus up. This is what we’re gonna do.'”
Days before the state championship win, Woods caddied for his son at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf Championship in Louisiana. He had qualified during the Junior Golf Championship during the second round of the Last Chance Regional in September. Charlie’s father had caddied for him at the time as well, according to People.
The news comes as Woods announced his return to competitive golf last Saturday. He will participate in the Hero World Championship, which will mark his first PGA Tour start since ankle surgery in April.
