Son, not Tiger Woods, protagonist, “Charlie Saved the PNC Championship”

  • December 15, 2022

Tiger Woods (USA) and his father, the emperor of golf, will participate in the PNC Championship, a family event of the PGA Tour Champions this weekend.

Woods and his son Charlie (13) will challenge for his first win in this competition held at the Ritz-Carlton GC (par 72) in Orlando, Florida, USA for two days from the 17th. Woods and his son took second place after John Daly and his son last year.

The PNC Championship started in 1995 under the name of ‘Father Sun Challenge’. Male players who won the major tournament or the 5th major tournament, the Players Championship, and their sons who started learning golf were regular members in the early days. Since it was an unofficial event, it did not gain much popularity, and golf legends such as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus (above USA) have maintained it while struggling to remain a meaningful family event on the PGA Tour.

As female golfers also began to participate, the name of the tournament was changed to the PNC Championship from 2020, and Tiger Woods and his son took part for the first time, and it was greatly highlighted. In particular, for the first time since a fatal car accident last year, N Woods competed with his son Charlie, despite his uncomfortable body, and suddenly received attention as a major tournament.

Woods, who played only nine rounds in three major tournaments (Masters, PGA Championship, and The Open) this season, has included the PNC Championship as a mandatory tournament this year as well. This scene provides a glimpse of Woods’ paternal love for his son, Charlie, who is rapidly developing into a great golf player, and wants to spend meaningful time and memories with him.

Woods was so proud of his son’s golf skills that he said at a press conference for the Hero World Challenge he hosted earlier this month, “Charlie hits the ball and I just need to get the ball out of the hole.” In another interview, he even said, “Charlie hits farther than me.” 스포츠토토

Some say that the protagonist of this tournament is not Woods, but his son Charlie. Padrig Harrington (Ireland), who competed with his son, expressed his interest in Charlie, saying, “It is the first time I have seen a tournament in which Woods is not the main character.” USA Today Golfweek described it as ‘Charlie Woods saved the PNC Championship’. In fact, if it’s not for his son, Woods won’t be so overbearing at the end of the year.

Woods and his son will play in a group with Justin Thomas (USA), who will join his father in the first round of the tournament. Gary Player (South Africa), Nick Price (Zimbabwe), Nick Faldo (England), Lee Trevino, Jim Furyk, and Jordan Spieth (above the United States) are rich and participate, and women’s golf legend Annika Sorenstam (Sweden) has a son, World No. 3 Nellie Korda (USA) goes out with her father.
