Tiger Woods’ son, Charlie Axel Woods, is following in his footsteps when it comes to playing golf!
Charlie advanced to the Notah Begay III National Championship after winning in the second round of the 14-15 age division in the Last Chance Regional over the weekend. But he wasn’t alone on the green, with the teen being accompanied by his dad, who was caddying for him.
In an interview following his second victory, Charlie said it was “great” to have his father supporting him on the golf course.
“We just stay in our own little world,” he explained about his dad caddying for him.
The two were photographed together in pictures, obtained by People.
“We take it one shot at a time,” Charlie continued, adding that his dad “puts me in my place” from time to time. “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.'”
Next up is the Notah Begay III National Championship, which will take place November 4 through 6 at Koasati Pines at Coushatta Casino Resort in Louisiana.
Tiger’s appearance was also exciting for the other players’ parents. Shane Croft, whose son Chase competed, posted on Instagram about caddying alongside Tiger.
“Ok, EPIC would in no way be a big enough word to describe today,” Croft wrote. “Honestly, there is no way to express what this was like. Four hours one-on-one with Charlie and Tiger was just unreal. Can’t even thank Ryan Burr enough for orchestrating this entire day. His tournament is so professionally run. Just next-level junior golf. Anyway, this will be a story my family talks about on my deathbed one day. And it will be a proud moment for sure.”
