Charlie Woods, Tiger Woods’ son, won his first-ever Florida high school state golf tournament last Wednesday, something that his father never had the opportunity to win.
According to CBS News, the Benjamin School freshman helped his boy’s team secure his school’s fourth title at Mission Inn Resort and Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida. Woods managed to get the fourth-best score of his team, carding rounds of 78 and 76 of the tournament.
In September, Charlie had secured his spot with a victory at the Junior Golf Championship. His father had been seen right by his side and caddied for him. This time around Tiger was mainly on the sidelines, congratulating his son for his big win.
Individually, Charlie Woods came in 26th place while his other teammates came in eighth, 12th, 19th, and 34th place.
Unlike his son, Tiger Woods never had the opportunity to win a state championship for Western High School in Anaheim. Mainly because California didn’t offer state championships for golf during Woods’ time at the school. Instead, Woods became the then-youngest US Junior Amateur champion in 1991 and went on to win the CIF SoCal Regional later that year.
Woods is set to play at the televised indoor golf league event The TGL, this January. The event is organized by TMRW Sports, a company which Woods co-founded with Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy.
