The big Tiger Woods news over the weekend has to be that Tiger’s back held up while caddying for his son, Charlie, who had a golf tournament in Florida. According to the great @TWspot Instagram account, Tiger was on the bag this weekend, but the event was called off mid-round due to rain.
You’re going to see big headlines out of blogs today stating that Charlie won this weekend by five strokes with Tiger on the bag, but that was actually a week ago while dad was playing in the PGA Championship. GolfNewsNet has the full details from 11-year-old Charlie’s victory:
In an Aug. 9 US Kids Golf-sanctioned event at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City, Fla., Charlie Woods won the nine-hole event in the boys 11-year-old division with a 3-under 33 on the 2,467-yard course. It was a clean card, with three birdies and no bogeys.
That’s great and all for young Charlie, but he’s a kid and there’s no need to put pressure on him when we still have Tiger’s back to worry about as the tour heads to Boston for the Northern Trust. According to TWspot, Tiger was on the range this morning at Winged Foot, site of the 2020 U.S. Open, to get swings in before heading to Boston.
The back held up during dad’s weekend duties and we’re all good here.
