In preparation for Friday’s pro-am at the PNC Championship, Tiger Woods returned to the game with his 14-year-old son Charlie.
The two will compete together once more in Florida’s exclusive scramble event, which pairs professional golfers with a family member.
Because the event was sanctioned by the PGA Tour Champions, the 15-time major champion had the option of utilizing a golf cart to navigate the course, but he walked all 18 holes on Friday, displaying encouraging indications of health and fitness.
In a Q&A, Woods said to a tour official, “I felt like I was physically fit to do it, and walking is always better for my back.”
We’re having so much fun that it really doesn’t matter; I simply wanted to keep things loose and flowing. It was enjoyable for us to do.”
Woods claimed he was happier with his shot control on Friday. Woods made his Hero World Challenge comeback two weeks ago, his first since undergoing surgery on his ankle in April.
“Especially today with the wind blowing as hard as it was, I was able to hit flighted shots nicely, which was not quite on par or as sharp as I was, as I wanted to be at Hero.”
Woods and his son are competing in the PNC Championship for the fourth time this year, and it’s becoming more and more popular every
In addition, Woods caddied for Charlie at the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship held last month.
“It’s a blast for us to be back out here, playing and competing and just enjoying this atmosphere,” Tiger stated.
“It’s been a blast, and hopefully we get through the next day or so without any delays, and hopefully we’re able to post something good.”
Tiger and Charlie will play in the PNC Championship’s opening round on Saturday against Justin Thomas and his father.
