“He’s got some parts in his swing that I’m trying to do,” said Woods to laughter. “It’s a little frustrating at times.”
Tiger said he’s teaching Charlie the game the same way his father, Earl, taught him: by creating made-up pars based on Charlie’s ability.
“When I played, I was so little. A par-4 is not a par-4. So my dad created my own par. So every time I would play the hole, whatever shots it took me to get to the green, reasonably, plus two. So sometimes it was a par- 12.
“And that’s what I did with Charlie…It’s about them enjoying the attention that it takes to try to get to par…What my dad did was genius because it kept me interested. It kept me focused on, my dad shot 2-over and I shot three, and I almost beat him. Even though I was making 11 and 12 on holes, but in relation that’s about right.”
Tiger Woods’ 7-year-old son Charlie finished T2 at his junior golf tournament in West Palm Beach, Fla., Friday, with a finishing score of 19 over par. The last time Tiger finished T2? The 2013 Barclays.
The kids played nine holes at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club, not far from the Woods’ Jupiter Island residence. Charlie, who started on the 10th hole, had a tournament highlight of par on the 150-yard par-2.
Tiger Woods, when asked, has stated in the past that his son, Charlie Woods, was moving in the right direction, and was demonstrating dominance over the game at this point in his young golf life.
