Charlie Woods And Dad, Tiger Woods, Hit The Range For Father-Son Championship

Charlie Woods and dad, Tiger Woods, are at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club Orlando for the father-son PNC Championship that starts today. Tiger and Charlie will tee off at 11:48 a.m., but the round will not be televised. Your first look at the Woods’ father-son combo will come Saturday with coverage on Peacock from 1-2:30 ET, followed by coverage on NBC from 2:30-5. Sunday’s coverage will start at 2 on Golf Channel and move to NBC from 3-6.

Tiger and Charlie will tee off today just behind John Daly and his son, Little John Daly. Others competing in the championship include Greg Norman with his son, Justin Thomas and his father, Bubba Watson with his father-in-law, Bernhard Langer and his daughter, and Lee Trevino will be on the course with his son Daniel.

But it’s no secret what TV viewers will be looking for. Charlie Woods, 11, is set to make his TV debut with this swing.

“Having Tiger and his son in the field for the first time is a very special moment for the recently re-named PNC Championship,” tournament director Alastair Johnston said in November. “Back in 1997, Tiger and I were next door neighbors at Isleworth. After his momentous victory at the Masters that year, when he returned home, I offered him my congratulations. However, I did not reference his amazing performance at Augusta but advised him that as a newly-minted major champion, he had now qualified to participate in the Father/Son Challenge!”

“He was somewhat bemused at the time, but 23 years later, we will welcome him knowing very well that he will not be driven by nostalgia but will be on a mission to add to his commendable list of titles, but this time having the chance to share one with his son.”
