Tiger Woods, and his twelve-year-old son, Charlie, have just set a tournament record by hitting eleven straight birdies. The pair finished in second place in the PNC Championship in Orlando. The two rocked matching red shirts for the round. Woods was all smiles as he and his son received applause and encouragement.
We can only wait to see if young Charlie will follow his father’s footsteps to the world of professional golfing.
This tournament comes ten months after Woods’ car crash where his right leg was badly injured. The accident happened after his vehicle crashed in the Los Angeles suburbs. Thankfully, he was able to avoid amputation and has slowly recovered.
Woods and Charlie played against John Daly and his college son, John Daly II. Even though the Daly’s won the game by two points, Woods enjoyed every second of the game. The two teams smiled as they proudly shook hands with one another.
“The fact that I’m able to have this opportunity this year — even a couple of weeks ago we didn’t know whether or not I would be doing this,” Woods said. “But here we are. And we had just the best time ever.”
This can remind others that although winning can be a great feeling, what’s the point if those playing the game didn’t enjoy themselves along the way?
Tiger Woods Storied Career
Tiger Woods is one of the best golfers to ever play the game. The forty-five-year-old athlete is one of the most famous athletes in history. One can only imagine how much talent, determination, khakis, and Polos one must have to earn such a title.
After having an impressive amateur golf career growing up, Woods made it to professional golf at the age of twenty.
His career has seen some setbacks due to personal problems in his life. He admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, Elin, for some time. After attempting to resolve their marriage, the two decided to divorce. His marital struggles along with having to undergo four back surgeries caused his name to disappear from the list of the world’s top 1,000 golfers.
Fortunately, Woods has been able to regain his title as one of the best golfers in the world.
