Charlie Woods Cognizant Classic: Bid to Qualify Falls Short

Tiger Woods' son Charlie fell short in his bid to qualify for the Cognizant Classic, finishing 16-over in the pre-qualifier.

Tiger Woods' son Charlie had a challenging day on the golf course, finishing 16-over in the pre-qualifier for the Cognizant Classic. The 15-year-old participated in the event at Lost Lake Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida, one of four pre-qualifying sites for the upcoming PGA Tour event.

The top 25 players and ties from the pre-qualifier will advance to the full qualifier on February 26, where four players will earn spots in the Cognizant Classic, scheduled to take place from February 29 to March 3 at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.

Accompanied by his mother, Elin Nordegren, Charlie Woods teed off at 7:39 am local time and played alongside Olin Browne Junior. Despite his efforts, he did not make the top five at Lost Lake.

Throughout his round on the par-70 course, Woods faced challenges, including a double-bogey on the fifth hole and a costly 12 on the seventh. Despite not securing a birdie, he managed to make 11 pars, showing flashes of promise during his round.

This is not Charlie's first foray into competitive golf. He has previously participated in the PNC Championship alongside his father and also competed in the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship, where he finished tied for 17th in the boys 14-15 division.

Tiger Woods, who was unable to compete in the Genesis Invitational last week due to illness, has been a supportive presence for his son, even acting as his caddie in past events. Despite the challenges Charlie faced in the pre-qualifier, his determination and potential are evident, and he continues to garner experience and improve his skills on the golf course.
