Tiger Woods’ son Charlie shoots 86 in PGA Tour pre-qualifier

Harlie Woods, the 15-year-old son of Tiger Woods, was unsuccessful in his bid to earn a spot in the field in his local PGA Tour event on Thursday, firing a round of 16-over-par 86 in an 18-hole pre-qualifier at Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla.

The qualifier at Lost Lake was one of four pre-qualifying sites for the upcoming Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches, which will be played from Feb. 29 to March 3 at PGA National Resort’s Champions course in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

About 25 players from the four pre-qualifiers will move on to the Monday qualifier next week, where the top four players will earn spots into the Cognizant Classic. Charlie was not among the top five scores at Lost Lake on Thursday.

While Charlie didn’t card any birdies on the 6,705-yard tournament setup at Lost Lake, his round was primarily derailed by a few big numbers: two double bogeys, and a 12 on the par-4 7th hole, which features water danger off both the tee and the approach.

Charlie first made his televised golf debut alongside his father at the 2020 PNC Championship as an 11 year old, and he’s now teamed with his dad four times in the event. Earlier this year Charlie’s high school team won its state championship.

Tiger was 16 years old when he played his first PGA Tour tournament at Riviera in 1992.
