Tiger Woods and son Charlie finish seventh in PNC Championship
Tiger Woods said it was “incredibly special” to team up with his 11-year-old son Charlie after the duo finished seventh in the PNC Championship.
Wearing the same Sunday red shirts, the Woods duo shot a second-straight 62 to finish on 20 under par in the scramble format at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Florida.
The event was won by Justin Thomas and his father Mike, who finished with a 57 for a one-shot victory over Team Singh.
“It was incredibly special for us to have the opportunity to spend the quality time we had,” Woods said. “It’s memories we’ll have for our entire lives.
Charlie hit some impressive shots over the two days of competition, including his first-ever eagle on Saturday. A day later, he drained a 10-foot putt before imitating his father’s customary fist pump.
“I’m just proud,” he added. “It was special for both of us. He’s not going to appreciate this at 11 years old. As the years go by, you start appreciating it more. I’m sure that we’ll have a lot of banter over the holidays and the years to come.”
"Memories for a lifetime."

David Duval, who played with his son Brayden and was paired with Team Woods on Sunday, reckons young Charlie has plenty of potential.
“The best way you can describe it is he has great fundamentals,” he said. “He is not afraid. And he hits the ball pretty darn far. Charlie maximizes it. He moves it out there pretty darn good for a little fella. And it’s only going to get better, if that’s what he wants.”
