Tiger Woods’ son Charlie claims state high school golf title

Charlie Woods is currently expanding his collection of junior trophies.

The 14-year-old was part of in the Benjamin School boys team’s victory on Wednesday in the Florida High School Athletic Association Class A state final, securing the Palm Beach school’s fourth championship.

In front of his father Tiger, who was dressed in black, freshman Woods had rounds of 78 and 76 at the Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-In-the-Hills, Florida, recording the fourth-best score of his five-player team.

The Benjamin School Buccaneers prevailed by a single shot, and he tied for 26th place in the individual rankings.

When his son won his Junior National Golf Championship qualifying in Orlando in September, 47-year-old Woods caddied for him; but, this time, he had to watch from the sidelines.

Throughout his golf career, one of the few titles his father, Tiger, has not won is a state championship.

The California Interscholastic Federation did not have a championship during Tiger Woods’ time as a student, therefore he had a reason for not taking home a state championship in high school. Nevertheless, in 1991, at the age of 15, he set a record by winning the US Junior Amateur.

He turned pro in August 1996, and within a year he had won three PGA Tour events, turned 21 to become the youngest winner of The Masters.

With his most recent competitive play—a third-round withdrawal from The Masters in April—Woods is ranked 1307th in the world. This is his most recent appearance since he suffered severe leg injuries in a horrific vehicle crash in 2021.

He will, however, participate in The TGL in January, which is a televised indoor golf league run by TMRW Sports, which Woods and Rory McIlroy co-founded.
